“I have been using both Blueprint® Fescue and Cattle Mineral for over two years. I was dealing with a lot of fescue-related troubles when my Hubbard rep first called on me – lost tails, open cows and bad feet. My rep guaranteed he could fix these problems and he did. I now have two generations with no lost tails or fescue foot and my conception rate has increased. Feeding the mineral is really simple and I like that my rep brings not only product information, but relevant industry knowledge to the table.”

"We currently use Blueprint® Calving Mineral with Bio-Mos® and Blueprint Fescue Mineral with Altosid® IGR on our operation. We started using the calving mineral to combat scours in first and second season calves and scours just seemed to disappear. Despite some wet springs, calves have experienced stronger starts and have a lot more vigor. We then decided to give the fescue mineral a try. Even in the heat of the day, cows will be out eating and our tail loss has really improved. We were also having trouble with wind blowing away our previous mineral because it was too fine, but we don’t experience this issue with Blueprint because it is more coarse and consistent.”

"I have fed both Blueprint® Cattle and Fescue Mineral for several years. I have a better conception rate and have seen a noticeable improvement in haircoat and previous tail and foot issues. I took a break for a bit to try out a cheaper product and noticed a difference in conception rate so I switched back. My Hubbard rep makes things easy to understand and the product works."

"I like several things about Blueprint® minerals – they’re coarse, superior products that perform well and they offer a good selection with a consumption rate that is right on target for most. Blueprint also incorporates a lot of technology that other products don’t. Fescue is a big issue in my area and since switching most of my customers to Blueprint products, we have seen better conception rates. Plus, the cost difference equates to pennies per day and customers are saving money in the long run by not having to deal with health issues and open cows. I also like Hubbard’s level of service. There are not many companies or representatives out there willing to offer as much assistance and it’s no comparison to those I’ve dealt with in the past."
- Dennis Chaney, Osceola, IA
“I feed Blueprint® Fescue Mineral and Blueprint with Bio-Mos®. Since starting my herd on these products, I have experienced no fescue, calving or scours-related issues. When I last AI’d all of my heifers and cows, on first service I had 72 percent bred, and on second service 85 percent were bred, a significant improvement.”
