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

Every year we put on an event to celebrate our customers and to let them know how much we appreciate their business, because without their support Bio-Ag would not be where we are today. This year's event was on July 11th, 2018. The preparation process demands a lot of us but once everything comes together everyone has a good time.
As many of our customers come to this event every year, we try to offer something new whether it’s a unique educational topic or a special give away. Oh and we can’t forget the amazing lunch that was prepared with Bast Family Organic Beef. We owe Rolling Roaster special thanks for preparing the meat and serving the food; it was cooked perfectly and was delicious! As for gift bags, several lucky families received a full sized Real Salt shaker in their bags.
Our information sessions were well attended. This year we had two presentations - Summer Mastitis, and Young Ruminant Health - by Bio-Ag’s Veterinarian, Kathrine Stoeckli, who was accompanied by our Nutritionist, Thevika Sebastian. If you are interested in more information from Kathrine on summer heat stress, check out her article in our summer newsletter!
The third presentation was by Luke Serbina of Black Earth Humic going over the exciting benefits of applying Black Earth to your crops for increased yield. Luke also was around throughout the day to talk to customers. Thank you for joining us Luke! We hope to see you again soon. To learn more about Black Earth applications you can contact or office or your local dealer.
