Wouldn’t it be nice if one nutrition company could meet all of your livestock needs year-round? Many cattle producers are aware of the benefits that Amaferm®

Inc., the makers of Amaferm, manufacture vitamin and mineral supplements for all species from cattle and sheep to goats and pigs.

Amaferm is a precision prebiotic research-proven to increase intake, digestion and absorption. Amaferm is designed to enhance di- gestibility by amplifying nutrient supply for maximum perform- ance. BioZyme®

Often producers will own multiple species, like a product they have tried on one group of livestock and discover that their BioZyme dealer also has a product for the other species he or she raises. That is the case with Sardinia, Ohio, livestock producer Trevor Corboy. Corboy and his family raise registered Angus cattle and Boer and Nubian goats. He has been using VitaFerm®

Concept•Aid® on his Angus herd

with good results. Since he started feeding Concept•Aid, he has short- ened his calving window by nearly half. Corboy said he previously stretched calving over a month and a half, but in 2021, his calving season should only last three weeks. He also is a believer in the Vita Charge®

line, a fast-acting,

multi-species supplement designed to mitigate stress and help during times of recovery. The Vita Charge line offers versatility in many forms, simplifying application for what is best for your animal. Vita Charge comes in liquid, gels and tubs.

Corboy said he was excited to find out he could get similar pro- ducts for his goat herd that he and his sister established. The mix of meat and milk goats have already benefited from feeding DuraFerm®

Goat Concept•Aid® .

years, and we’ve noticed a difference with a healthier coat, a better conception rate and the overall production of the goats seems a whole lot better. I have seen increased kid vigor at birth and the does have a higher milk output. Many goat producers aren’t aware that DuraF- erm is out there, but it has been fairly beneficial from our perspec- tive,” Corboy said. Your mineral program should work for you year-round and ac- ross all your animals.
