What ranchers are saying...

 

Calving

Calving

"My cows are calving now. The calves are up and moving within 10 minutes of hitting the ground!!" - Hays, KS

"Incoming calves - not as much weight loss on the stressed calves coming in ... and normally only eating 12lbs up to 15lbs on the high side, and now we're seeing 16.5lbs intake on these new calves...really liking them...was kinda skeptical but not anymore!" - Lubbock, TX

"My Superior Livestock rep is astounded...he helping me brand so he saw my calves at branding. (These are March/April calves weighing 700 lbs). On October 1st he said to me, "what are you doing that nobody else is doing around here - your calves are so noticeably uniform, it's hard to sort a top-cut!" They look phenomenal, weighing heavier than ever before!" - Yuma, CO

"Calving was phenomenally tight...OVER 2/3 in the 1st cycle and I really watch the 42 days and keep very few that land after that!" - Big Piney WY

"Have had excellent results on Riomax tubs. I’ve had the lowest treat rate of any past historical calving seasons!" - Airdrie AB

"Fed the tubs through calving this year. We had a lot of cold wet stormy weather and I didn't have to treat a single calf when a lot of my neighbors were treating a lot of calves for scours". - Tyler MN

“425 cows and 50% of them calved in 10 days; 65-75 head and all but 1 heifer calved the first cycle; I have used a lot of different tubs, but never have seen tubs perform like Riomax!" – Broadus MT

"Tubs sure work!! Cows are calving better, cleaning better and getting way better breed up.” – White Fox SK

"Things are going good! Cows are cleaning quickly and the energy in the calves has just amazed me this year! Thank you for everything!" – Belle Fourche SD

“When we branded I heard the neighbor telling his boys - 'look at these calves, there ain’t a small one in there...must be those barrels he’s feeding’. We haven’t treated a single calf this year! Have never seen the cows clean so fast!!" – Isabel SD

“The calves are sure gaining…I’d say just like as if they were on creep…but you don’t get that baby-fat, which is  good…! Those buyers like that framey calf…all they got to do then is put the pounds on in the feedlot" – Aitkin MN

"This is the first full year on Riomax. Normally we treat quite a few calves by now and this year we haven’t touched one!" – Alliance NE

"Riomax just fixes everything. It clearly helped milk production - can’t believe how shiny the cows are and how good their condition is coming into the winter on these tubs!" – Hyannis NE

"The Protector-XL Tubs - they are helping…cut way back on abortions in the heat and cut way down on milk fever and metabolic issues” – Wills Point TX

"I saw it with my own eyes... had my cows on it pre-calving, and had another group not on it... and at calving time, it was a day and night difference in the calves when they hit the ground, I mean, these ones were scratching to get up before they hit the ground, and the other ones just laid there" – Beulah ND

"I have seen maximum milk production and milk quality. Riomax has helped my heifer’s milk really well and their calves are huge!" – Wall SD

“I really believe in Riomax! These calves came out of them cows and you could tell that the mineral was getting to them through the cows prior to calving. A lot more of this mineral in here gets absorbed! My vet was sure impressed!" – Toston MT

“Just over 600 cows to calve…30 days into calving we already had 530 calves on the ground!” – Youngstown AB

"CALVES ARE REALLY DOING WELL on the Riomax tubs - I used to see pinkeye, water-belly, and now I am not seeing any of those issues!" – Laramie WY

 “100% calf crop! Getting that good mineral into them is key for us!” – Hudson SD

"We are not even a month into calving and I can see 2 calves at every tub! There are cows already cycling back too! Very happy with how Riomax is working!" – Cedar Point KS

"Calves are very vigorous. Getting up and going like never before! They are born and jump up and suck! From what I have seen out of this program so far, I have decided as long as I own cows, I will be feeding these tubs." – Theodore SK

"I saw it with my own eyes... had my cows on it pre-calving, and had another group not on it... and at calving time, it was a day and night difference in the calves when they hit the ground, I mean, these ones were scratching to get up before they hit the ground, and the other ones just laid there" – Beulah ND

"These tubs have affected the weight of the calves, condition of the cows, and the breed back! Ranchers can’t afford not to feed it!” – Trail MN

"We sure improved our breeding! We had 72% calves out in 15 days! …and we sure improved our calf vigor too!!" – Parshall ND

“We've nearly finished calving already in March and some of the cows are cycling again. Normally we would be calving into May” – Diller NE

"The last 2 years we have had very little sickness in the calves. Last year we treated 17 calves, the year before we treated 34 calves, and before using Riomax we treated 250-some calves! Since getting on Riomax we aren't spending near as much - before I would run a vet bill up to $18,000! The last 2 years since getting on Riomax we have shipped the heaviest calves we ever have! Plus our cows don't go through near as much hay!" - Avon MT

"You don't have to sell me on this stuff, I saw it with my own eyes. Had my cows on it pre-calving, and had another group not on it, and at calving time, it was a day and night difference in the calves when they hit the ground. I mean - these ones were scratching to get up before they hit the ground, and the other ones just laid there".  - Beulah ND

"Our ranch started just about a year ago and we got 50 pounds extra on the calves last year, plus we’re feeding five pounds less hay then we did last year right now and it's been extremely cold". - Kaycee WY

"These Y-bullets - they are my first GO-TO for the slightest signs of scours. We like to stay natural. Very high success rate saving these calves". - Geyser MT

“Calving for just over a week and have a 1/3 of the calves on the ground with no problems! That’s been the norm around here since I started with your tubs.” - Edgerton AB

"Cows are calving like crazy. Not even a week past the due date and already have 1/2 of the calves on the ground!" - Corning SK

"The thing we're most impressed with is we were 75% done in 21 days this year. So much more uniform calf crop and more marketable" - Laramie WY

"Went from 7-10% open down to 3.5% open this year! Really happy with that! The biggest difference was in the second-calvers." - High Prairie, AB

"I pregged 500 cows and only had 12 open! 2 of those were free-martins, which I knew; so that is only 10 open out of 500!!! We're usually happy with breed-up in the low 90s, it's often in the high 80s, but we were blown away with 98% breed-up." - Hereford, TX

"Know there are other things as well but the main reason we keep on the tubs is because of how they help conception rates".  - Marwayne, AB

“425 cows and 50% of them calved in 10 days; 65-75 head and all but 1 heifer calved the first cycle; I have used a lot of different tubs, but never have seen tubs perform like Riomax!" – Broadus MT

"Let’s do this again!!

“No beer money because of lack of open cows to sell this fall. Normally have a few open cows but this year only had 6 open out of 300.

"Took a couple ton to the north ranch and used for grazing distribution and you know it worked". - Douglas Lake BC.

"I had cows on stubble and prairie grass, and they cleaned that up then ate all the grass along the fencelines...that field lasted me a month instead of 2 weeks". - Chaplin SK

Weaning

Weaning

"The calves at weaning that were on Rio weighed 590lbs avg and the calves on the other tubs weighed 530lbs avg. That is 60lbs x 350 calves = 21,000lbs EXTRA!!" - St Johns, AZ

"Honestly...the Riomax tubs saved my a*** this year ... I cannot explain how bad conditions were. I even lowered my contract from 540 to 525, but the calves STILL weighed 534! I know for a fact there are a LOT OF CALVES being weaned out here that are 50lbs light!" - Jordan, MT

They are licking them steady now and going into feed good!" – Grand Forks BC

“When I weaned the calves that were on Riomax, they were 100 lbs. heavier than the ones not on Riomax!” – Kaplan LA

I thought the calves weighed up real good - I’m sure it paid! We will be doing it again next summer!” – Mosby MT

“The cows stayed in good condition, the calves outperformed last year’s calves that were fed creep, and it was much less management and work than creep. Oct 2nd they averaged 700lbs in that pasture and last year they were 686lbs. - so they gained 14 lbs., and we spent at least $10/hd less on this program. We are going to do it again...wife is very happy" – Yuma CO

"We have seen such an increase in our weaning weights, and the cows look totally different!” – Dupree SD
