Drought Management


DRY, DRY, DRY! Our pastures have very little grass left and the need to supplement with hay is here. Get your money's worth when purchasing hay bails; be sure you check the weight of the bails at purchase. Purchase higher quality hay for the better protein content.


With the shortage of pasture grass, keeping your cattle supplemented with a mineral program is vital for their body condition score!  Talk to Ark Country Store about a mineral program today!

Purina Layena Plus Omega-3 Poultry Feed


Layena Plus Omega 3Purina Layena Plus Omega-3 poultry feed is truly unique. It's made with flaxseed, which not only supports a healthy flock, but also provides enhanced nutrients in their eggs. While a typical egg provides a mere 65mg of Omega-3 fatty acids, an egg produced by healthy poultry fed exclusively on Purina Layena Plus Omega-3 poultry feed contains 200mg of Omega-3.  


And like all Purina SunFresh Recipe poultry feeds, Layena Plus Omega-3 poultry feed contains no added hormones, antibiotics, animal fat or animal by-products. Just wholesome goodness for a delicious, homegrown egg.  Click here to read more.
