Cattle Mineral Meeting
Save the date for our Cattle Mineral Meeting on Wednesday, February 22, 2012 from noon to 1:30pm.
Cattle with mineral shortages or imbalances do poorly in reproduction, lactation, weight gains, body condition, etc. - all the factors that affect your profitability. But most mineral deficiencies don't show obvious symptoms until it's too late, and without good records it's hard to identify a gradual decline in cattle performance.
Come learn the latest in cattle mineral nutrition! Register online or call the store to RSVP, 972-937-8860. Lunch will be provided.
