Senior Horse Nutrition
HorseYou love your horses and you want to provide them with the best nutrition and care possible. Did you know that the point at which your horse turns from mature to senior varies individually? There is no specific age that makes your horse a senior horse. Careful observation will tell you when your horses nutritional needs begin to change along with consistent care from your vet. You can help your vet by monitoring the condition of your horses as they age.

Read here to learn what to look for in your older horse.


The Importance of Sustained Cattle Nutrition
Over the years, many have come to place importance on a calf and heifers nutrition immediately following birth. While this is an important time to make sure your cattle have the maximum nutrition available, it is not the only time. Your entire herd will benefit from sustained nutrition throughout the current herds life and for future herds. Purina has developed feeds for just this purpose based on years of research.

Read more our website! Stop by the store and let us help you get your cattle on the path of sustained nutrition!  

Candice's Corner:  Tips from the Master Gardener

November is the time to move trees and shrubs in your landscape! If they are not getting the proper amount of light or shade, transplant them now. No need to amend the soil, just use existing soil to fill in the planting hole.


It is also a great time to plant spinach and lettuce! Be sure to feed the vegetables you plant now along with your winter annuals. Don't know what to feed your plants? Ask us!


Watch out for interlopers! Check your potted plants for insects prior to moving them indoors. Caterpillars can also cause problems. Use a spray containing BT (bacteria that is an active ingredient in certain insecticides) to control them.


We have Fall and Winter annuals, so come by and add some color to your winter landscape!

It's November in Texas and cooler temps are on their way! Here are a couple of things to keep in mind.
