TMR Corner:Evaluating TMR mixer performance: testing mix uniformity

As previously stated “the objective of feeding a total mixed ration (TMR) is to provide a consistently uniform mix, with the intended ingredient and nutrient composition, across the entire length of the feedbunk with every batch.” And while a number of factors such as ingredient variability and moisture content, consistency of mixing procedures, operator error, and weighing system variability contribute to batch-to-batch variation, it is the characteristics of the mixer itself that essentially control within batch variation, and uniformity across the feedbunk. In this article we will discuss TMR mixer characteristics that affect mix uniformity and a sieving technique that can be used to evaluate it and make adjustments to improve animal performance.

REDI Driver: The Post Driver Cattlemen Trust

Cattlemen, would you like to have energy left after a day of driving pasture and range posts? Would you like to use the same drivers that commercial fence contractors use?
If you answered yes, then the REDI Driver is for you.
“Our customers spoke and we listened,” said Lorri Evans of REDI Driver, Inc. “Being fence contractors ourselves, we knew cattlemen had a need for a more versatile gas-powered post driver that didn’t limit them to a post size of only 2-3/8". Ranchers need to be able to drive posts from t-posts up to 2-7/8", all with one simple convenient driver, so we created the new REDI Driver Boss.”

Beef Industry Sustainability

Sustainability is a word we hear a lot in the beef industry these days. Some of the nation’s largest buyers of beef are heavily focused on the topic right now and I don’t think it’s a topic that will go away any time soon. You’ve no doubt heard McDonald’s plan to source verified sustainable beef by 2016. Walmart is also developing plans to ensure the sustainability of its beef supply chain.
