Dan and Robert Biese own Biese Farm in Wisconsin and milk 185 cows. They work with Jerry Hillman of Henry Carstens and Sons, located in Brillion, WI.
"We have been using CRYSTALYX® Dry Cow Formula™ for several years. The block gives us the confidence that all the cows are getting what they need. The barrels are easy and convenient for our group sizes. We would recommend CRYSTALYX® to other farms.”
"We had high yeast counts in the silage a few years back. The feed was not as stable as we wanted, which hurt intakes and rumen function. We started using Brigade® Stress Fighting Formula in the pre and post fresh groups. Brigade® helped the cows work through that problem by improving intakes and seemed to help keep their guts healthy. We have continued using Brigade® and have very few fresh cow problems. The fresh cows start out good, with few cleaning problems and not much ketosis. We use Buffer-lyx® and that helps the cows cope with the heat. They eat more at night and still go to the Buffer-lyx® during the day. We tried Buffer-lyx® because we seemed to lose milk and intakes in the summer. Since using Buffer-lyx®, things are more consistent."
