Since the 1980’s SWG and CHS have been working together to make sure that their producers can get the most premium products on the market today. CHS Nutrition (Payback feeds) has everything a producer needs from mineral, feedlot supplements, weaning pellets and cow cake. And they aren’t just premium in cattle products, they carry a line of horse feeds (Equis), chicken feed, goat and sheep feed, along with hog supplements as well. They also have nutrition consultants that can offer taking hay samples, putting together rations, and also collecting water samples in the pastures or wells that could be toxic to livestock. They have multiple nutritionists within the CHS Nutrition Company that can get you the right information you need for you and your herd.
Don’t forget about rations! Call your local Southwest Grain and they can get you the number to your CHS nutritionist so they can get hay samples set up and a ration for the upcoming months!
Ask your local CHS Southwest Grain Animal Health staff about water and forage sampling/testing!
