Does anyone use Vigortone? I use their 3V4 S formula. Had great improvement in AI program.
TB - what is your take on this product?? I respect your opinion and would really appreciate it.

Jeanne Vigortone has always had a great reputation but personally I think they're lagging behind in continuing to rely on sulfates and oxides in most of their minerals. They do use yeast products in many if not all their products which should improve rumen health which affects almost every function in a cow so definitely could expect a better conception rate in your cattle. I understand perhaps one or two of their minerals now contain some chelates but haven't checked it out. Somewhat pricey but then yeast is expensive too. ;-)

Thanks for that info. Although, that sounds a little alarming. I thought I was told that they used chelated ingredients, but, looking at the label, I don't see anything that says it is???? Makes me wonder. I have to say, I definitely have had better conception AI & Embryos, so I am not complaining. But, you always wonder if you can do better?

Just your run of the mill mineral price. Nothing special about it but certainly won't hurt the cattle to eat it.

Thanks TB. Do you think it has enough good stuff in it. They have one more mineral that's suppose to be better but it is about 8$ more a bag.
