The Diamond A Ranch in Seligman, AZ covers 770,000 acres. After having tried every kind of supplement on the market, they settled 5 years ago on SweetPro Feeds Non-Molasses, distillers grain based cattle and horse products.
The horses use only EquiLix and dry grass. The work 3 months and are off for three months - Spring and Fall round-up wagon. They have more endurance than horses fed with grain. When off season, the remuda fends for itself.
They now have a much more content & healthy herd and save not only 25% on their forage requirements, but also on diesel fuel and labor costs. Blocks need to only be put out every 10 to 20 days so trucks are no longer running every day all over the ranch.
Bulls are healthier and handle the breeding season with plenty of weight and no sore footedness, despite having many miles to travel and rocky terrain to cover. Cows have more milk to provide and have much faster clean-up and breedback. Calves have their rumen jump started during preconditioning & backgrounding and go right to SweetPro tubs, in addition to receiving SweetPro Fresh Start meal in their rations.
