What our customers say...
I can see a difference already. Before we got them on Riomax, the cattle were walking all the time, and now they are laying down in the day - act a lot more content - and it only took about 4 days...we could see changes start to happen after only 4 days.
I am sticking with the Riomax program because everybody has footrot and pinkeye and I have had none and everybody says it has to do with your mineral program. If I have got cows with footrot and calves with big pink eyes, that is going to cost me a lot more!
After two weeks, I noticed that the cows were more content and was able to drop 1.5 lbs of dry matter out of the ration. The cows kept perfect condition, stayed very content, and still gained weight! I am very tickled with Riogrande and will continue to use it!
I believe your product has been a major factor in the profitability of our cattle operation; in 2013 we saw a fifty-two pound difference in the weight of our steer calves on Riomax lick tubs compared with those who were not, but with similar pasture conditions. Thank you Riomax!
I will tell you this. The cows that were on Riomax bred up significantly better than the cows that were not on it. I mean significantly better! With the conditions that we are in, its gotta be the tubs.
