Calves receive Alpha 7 at birth. Just before summer turnout, we give Vision 7 and pour-on. In the fall, calves receive Bovi Shield Gold 5, Ultrabac 7/Somubac, Resvac 4 and are poured with Ivomec. For any questions about our herd health program, please contact Dr. Mike Patrick at 605-995-0450.
Bull calves are fed a moderate ration consisting of free choice grass/alfalfa mixed hay, rolled corn, 32-0 B500 supplement, distillers and vitamins. Bulls are fed to gain around 3 lbs. per day. We feel this ration brings out the genetic differences in the bulls without getting them too fat or burning them up, thus ensuring longevity when they go to work in your herd.
