|Content||Soybean hulls are derived from the processing of soybeans to extract oil and meal, and they possess urease activity, which can pose challenges when included in rations with urea. However, this activity can be eliminated through heat treatment. Once heat-treated, these soybean hulls are known as soybean mill run.
Soybean mill run is a palatable feed option for both cows and calves, offering a substantial amount of easily digestible fiber. Its total digestible nutrient (TDN) value surpasses that of beet pulp and oats, reaching 93 percent of the TDN value found in barley and 88 percent of the TDN value in corn.||A specially formulated blend of Brome grass and Alfalfa hay, carefully combined to create a high-quality forage mixture. This mixture is packaged in an average weight of 60 pounds, ensuring a consistent supply of nutritious feed for livestock.
- Nutritional Balance: The combination of Brome grass and Alfalfa hay in the mix provides a well-balanced nutritional profile for livestock. Brome grass offers fibrous and coarse material, while Alfalfa hay brings protein-rich and highly digestible forage. Together, they create a feed blend that supports the overall health, growth, and productivity of animals.
- Energy and Protein: Brome grass and Alfalfa hay are both excellent sources of energy and protein. The combination of these forages ensures an adequate intake of carbohydrates and essential amino acids, promoting optimal growth, muscle development, and milk production in livestock.
- Palatability: Livestock generally find the mix of Brome grass and Alfalfa hay to be highly palatable. The appealing taste and texture encourage animals to consume the feed readily, ensuring consistent intake of essential nutrients.
- Digestive Health: Brome grass contributes to the fiber content of the mix, promoting healthy digestion and preventing digestive disorders in livestock. Alfalfa hay, known for its high digestibility, aids in efficient nutrient absorption and supports optimal digestive health.
- Forage Variety: The blend offers a diverse forage option for livestock. The combination of Brome grass and Alfalfa hay introduces a variety of textures, flavors, and nutrients, enhancing the diet and overall satisfaction of animals.
- Versatility: The feed mixture can be used for various livestock species, including cattle, horses, goats, and sheep. Its versatility allows for wide application across different farming operations, providing a flexible feed option to meet the needs of various animals.
|Alfalfa hay bales, made from the nutrient-rich legume plant, provides livestock with a superior forage choice that delivers exceptional nutrition and supports their overall well-being. The bales are carefully harvested, dried, and compacted to preserve the natural goodness of the alfalfa, resulting in a highly palatable and digestible feed source.
Benefits of feeding alfalfa hay bales to livestock include:
- Nutritional Excellence: Alfalfa hay is renowned for its exceptional nutritional profile, boasting high levels of proteins, vitamins (A, D, E, and K), minerals (calcium, potassium, phosphorus), and fiber. These nutrients play a vital role in promoting optimal growth, muscle development, and overall health in livestock.
- Digestive Health: The fiber content in alfalfa hay promotes healthy digestion in livestock. It aids in maintaining a well-functioning digestive system, minimizing the risk of digestive disorders such as colic or gastrointestinal blockages. The fibrous nature of alfalfa hay also encourages proper chewing, which supports dental health in animals.
- Weight Management: Alfalfa hay bales can be utilized to manage weight in livestock. The high-quality proteins and fibers help maintain healthy body weight, whether the animals require weight gain or weight maintenance. This versatility allows livestock owners to adapt their feeding strategies to individual animals' needs.
- Enhanced Milk Production: For dairy cattle, alfalfa hay bales offer an excellent source of nutrition to support milk production. The balanced blend of proteins, minerals, and vitamins stimulates lactation, resulting in higher milk yields and improved milk quality.
- Improved Fertility and Reproductive Performance: The nutrient-rich composition of alfalfa hay positively influences reproductive health in livestock. It provides essential nutrients that contribute to optimal fertility, supporting conception rates and reproductive efficiency in breeding animals.
- Source of Forage Variety: Feeding alfalfa hay bales introduces dietary variety to livestock, enriching their eating experience and minimizing feed boredom. The distinct taste and texture of alfalfa hay encourage animals to consume their meals eagerly, promoting consistent intake of essential nutrients.

|This is the original Sweet PDZ product that was introduced in 1983. The key advantage of this small particle size is the fact that a person can more thoroughly and comprehensively cover the wet spot or problem area. This results in a faster acting performance of absorbing and adsorbing the ammonia and odor. Many Sweet PDZ users translate this faster performance to better performance, and will swear that the Sweet PDZ Classic/Powder outperforms Granular.
How it Works
Sweet PDZ is extremely effective at neutralizing and removing ammonia and odors, because of its two special properties:
- Absorption – Which is the sticking of the ammonia gas molecule to the surface of the Sweet PDZ granule. When the Sweet PDZ granules desorb, or dry out, the ammonia odor molecule is driven off the surface of the mineral as nitrogen. This is why spent (used) bedding material that includes Sweet PDZ, works so well as a slow release fertilizer or as an enhancement to composting.
- Cation Exchange Capacity (CEC) – This is the liquid exchange aspect of Sweet PDZ’s odor neutralizing process. A sodium or potassium cation from the zeolite granule hydrolyzes (goes to liquid/urine) and the ammonium is exchanged and then becomes part of the Sweet PDZ granule. This liquid exchange works because the Sweet PDZ granules are always holding water.
