Looking over the many
years that have passed, there have been many changes in appliances, technology,
new words because of technology, inflation plus just thoughts of what we did
say to one another everyday. If you are old enough, you will recognize most
of the memorable thoughts listed below:

Welcome to 2019! I now realize the wisdom of my Mom's comment
when she told me, "The Older you get, the faster time flies." How many cheques will we have to write before
we are comfortable dating them 2019?
The featured feed
products this month, are the 18% Lamb Creep ration, the 16% Lamb Starter and
the 20% Kid Goat Starter. Bags are
$2.00/Bag off; Bulk orders are $25/tonne off the normal weekly price.
There has been much
talk about mycotoxins in this Fall's corn crop.
Vomitoxin is the mold which is commonly associated with feed refusal
when concentrations are high whereas Zearelenone impacts the reproductive efficiency
of livestock (particularly swine). For
that reason, we sample every load of corn (and corn by-products) which is
received at our St. Marys mill to ensure that we do not accept the higher
mycotoxin loads to make into your feed.
93% of the corn has been Grade 1 quality. Of the 600 loads received to date, 2/3 of
them have been less than 2.5 ppm; 4/5 tested low for Zearelenone. On farm screening prior to storing and
feeding your own crop can reduce your levels considerably too. On a side note,
the average vomitoxin level in all of the corn silage which was analyzed at our
Shur Gain Lab this Fall was 2.35 ppm.
The price of soymeal
increased by $15 per tonne last month which brings it in line with the price
two months ago.
