CVA: Fall Mineral & Tub Promotion

September 9, 2019

September is here and now is the time to be planning ahead. It’s important to create a plan with the correct protein and mineral supplements to help improve body condition scores going into winter which will then in turn, help produce healthy calves next spring. Now through Dec. 1, 2019, for every ton of loose mineral or tub purchased from CVA, a producer will receive a $25 gift card to Cabela’s or Bass Pro Shop. Going into fall, mineral complete tubs or increasing your loose mineral to a 12-phosphorus mineral may be a good idea. When going into calving season, Availa 4 minerals are ideal to have on hand at least 45 days prior to calving as it can help boost the immune system and get your cows cycling sooner.

Weaning season is quickly approaching and I know many of you are only a few weeks away. Purina has come out with a new product called RX3 that is available in Accuration Starter, Precon Complete, and Stress Care 5.  The RX3 technology has been added to these products since July and aids in the fight against Bovine Respiratory Disease. RX3 can be associated with the Recognize, Respond, and Return to health- thus the name, R X 3. The RX3 technology contains prebiotics, probiotics, and plant extracts to prime the immune system to support overall health during the stress of weaning time.

RX3 is used as a compliment to a vaccination program and does not require a VFD. Research has shown producers who have fed RX3 to their herds have a more uniform calf crop, less variation in average daily gains, and on average, a total of 6 more pounds of gain compared to the control group over 30 days. Running at the same time as CVA’s Fall Mineral and Tub Promotion, we are also offering producers a free vest for every 5 ton of starter feed purchased with RX3 technology. If producers are not using a starter but would like to use the Supermix RX3 supplement, at a quarter lb feed rate, a one-ton purchase of this will also get you a free vest.

Now is the time to take advantage of the great savings on mineral. I encourage producers to stop by your local CVA feed location, visit with your feed sales specialist to learn more about our fall mineral promotions! To learn more about CVA, visit
