Bio-Ag and Auswill Farms

Customer Spotlight - Auswill Farms

 

Mike Schumacher is a 3rd generation farmer, with 2015 marking the centennial for Auswill Farms. 

 

 

Originally purchased by his grandfather is 1915, Mike and his wife Brenda bought the farm in 1995.  Their son AJ helps out, and of course, grandson Liam likes to pitch in too.

 

The Schumacher's choose to use all IP seeds and compliments that choice with  Bio-Ag products such as

Bio-Lac/Seaweed/Sugar, Ocean Harvest Dried Seaweed Meal, Perma-Guard (DE), Bio-Ag Kelp Fertilizer, Black Earth, and Bio-Ag Calf Starter.  They use the Bio-Lac/Seaweed/Sugar to help with fermentation and feel the cows are healthier and are better milkers due to the high quality of their corn silage.

 

 

 

 

 

The Schumacher's are longtime customers of Bio-Ag and we wish them continued success and many more generations of farmers to come

May Special - Bio-Ag Custom Forage Prduct

Bio-Ag Custom Forage Product

PCAI Bio-Lac/Dried Seaweed Meal/Sugar

Get 5% Off for the Month of May

 

To control ensiling temperatures, reduce nutrient loss and produce sweet smelling, palatable forages, Bio-Ag offers a premium custom forage blend that your animals will love.

 

Bio-Lac helps to support the gut microflora.

 

Dried Seaweed Meal promotes a healthy immune system.

 

Organic Sugar increases the amount of fermentable substrate which helps the lactic acid bacteria in Bio-Lac to promote the reduction of the pH quickly.  This leads to better lactic acid fermentation.

 

We recommend this product for baleage, haylage, and corn silage.

 

At Bio-Ag we can get your forages tested to ensure you are providing your cattle with the highest quality feed

 

Gathering Forage Samples

  • Use a bale corer
  • Gather from 8-10 different bales or areas of the field when loading loose into wagons
  • Place samples into a clean pail and mix together to make a composite sample
  • Fill a 500ml-1 L plastic bag of the composite mix and clearly label - ask your bio-ag dealer for our pre-labelled baggies
  • Freeze wet samples; keep dry hay at room temperature

 

Looking for more readings on why forages are an important part of your cattle's diet?

Poultry Seaweed Update

 

Product Update - OceanFeed Poultry

 

Exciting news from our partners, Ocean Harvest Technologies!! Place your order here!


Ocean Harvest Technologies has just completed a dosing trial with broilers at the University of Guelph and preliminary results have been very positive. Here is a summary of the findings:

 

In starter phase, OFP at 0.5% OFP inclusion improved body weight (BW), body weight gain (BWG) and Feed conversion ratio (FCR). Response to OFP in the grower phase was similar to the starter phase with improvements in average daily feed intake (ADFI), BWG and FCR. In the finisher phase, only BWG was improved.

  • Overall (d 0-42), final BW (d 42) of birds fed the control plus 0.5, was heavier than those fed the Control diet by 166 grams.
  • Overall, birds fed 0.5% OFP had 2.2% better FCR relative to the control birds.
  • Birds fed 0.5% OFP had 9.2% higher breast yield relative to the control birds.
  • Mortality was reduced in birds fed the OFP diet compared to controls (1.4 vs 3.2%)
  • Due to improved performance and survival rate, OceanFeedTM Poultry provided a return of investment of 108%
