Feeding a quality mineral to supplement grass and hay is the basis for a successful feeding program.

Lloyd Baxley with Baxley Family Farms in Hemingway, South Carolina runs a 300 Sim-Angus brood cow farm. In addition to his cattle farm, he also farms corn, cotton, peanuts, tobacco and hay. He is a big believer in feeding good grass, good hay and good minerals to his cattle. Lloyd says, “Feeding a quality mineral to supplement grass and hay is the basis for a successful feeding program.” A couple of years ago, Lloyd starting using a custom Hi-Mag mineral manufactured by ULTRALYX. Lloyd stated that when he changed to the Hi-Mag mineral, his cows shed-off sooner, the red tint to their hair started going away and he saw an improvement in conception rates (96% on cows and 92% on heifers). He has also seen an improvement in overall herd health.

Lloyd purchases his mineral from Bartlett Milling Co. in Florence, South Carolina. This Hi-Mag mineral is a specially formulated, custom mineral manufactured at the Ridley Block Operations/ULTRALYX plant in Flemingsburg, Kentucky.
