Summer is finally here! Youth across our trade territory have been working hard feeding and caring for their livestock projects, preparing for the big show. We understand the work and dedication required and MFA takes pride in rewarding our youth who work hard and achieve success. Historically, MFA was built on a foundation of supporting youth participation in agriculture. Over 100 years later, we continue to live by these values, rewarding livestock exhibitors who follow a recommended MFA feeding program.

The Walker and Nevada MFA Agri Services teamed up last week to put on a show clinic for area 4-H and FFA students interested in or currently raising livestock projects. The clinic covered and focused on proper feeding of Beef and Swine projects. Attendees came in from three local 4-H projects and two FFA chapters.
Many farmers and Individuals have asked us the best way to help the March 2017 wildfire victims. Here are a few great places that offer direct support to farmers and ranchers affected by the fires:
Safety should be your number one priority.
Spring is just around corner and you’re getting ready to work your cattle once again before turning them out to summer pasture. With the thought of once again running cattle through your old, worn-out corral system, disastrous scenarios keep playing out in your mind.
During the winter months, water intake becomes very important. Horses do not like to drink too cold or icy water. A stock tank with a heater is a life saver.
Body condition scoring is a useful tool to estimate the cow’s energy reserves at critical points of her production cycle.
Nearly all cows sort their feed to some degree. That is why the leftover feed is the larger and unpalatable portions of the feed. Depending on conditions, the amount of sorting varies widely.
After hearing how “SHIELD Technology” could help with foal heat diarrhea, I decided to find out myself.
