Compared to other cattle pens, we had less pulls and early feed intake when we first tried the (Wind and Rain All Season 4 Availa 4) tub "delivery system." Our experience (feeding the tubs) has been good; we've also used them in other pens to help reduce pulls and retreats.

We started using the (Wind and Rain All Season 4 Availa 4) tub in the wet and severe cold winter of 2008 and wished we had started in the fall of 2007. Our foot problems have become minimal since then. Our attitude is if we eliminate 1-2 pulls in the pen, it pays the cost of the product. We utilize the tub on all new (cattle) arrivals.
Triple K Cattle
Intake seems to be driven by the mineral status and varying sources of the cattle. With the higher stressed cattle, intake of the (Wind and Rain All Season 4 Availa 4) tub has been higher in the first 7-14 days.
We feel that's good for them and us. We feel we have had less foot problems, less pulls, and we will continue to use the tubs with all new cattle.
Circle Five Beef
We've noticed enhanced water and feed consumption in the pens we offered the (Wind and Rain All Season 4 Availa 4) tub, especially with those cattle that seem to be hanging back in the pen.
Using the tub delivery system, feed intake has been on target. The tub offers a simple way to help the mineral status of new (calf) arrivals in a waste free package. We will continue to use them.

(We have a) 15,000 head capacity yard, started 7,000, 350-600 wt range calves on the (Wind and Rain All Season 4 Availa 4) tub this past winter and early spring. We've been very pleased with the tub delivery system, our pulls have been minimized, only 4% pulls and a 0.5% death loss on the 7,000 calves we offered the tub.

The (Wind and Rain All Season 4 Availa 4) tub has been working well for us, (with) on target intakes in a convenient package compared to other programs we've used. The tubs are mobile if needed. We feel our pulls are minimized and (it) supports our starting program well. We recommend them and are utilizing them also in our sick pens. Don Axmann, Purina dealer responded, we wouldn't be here if they didn't like them.

Our experience with the (Wind and Rain All Season 4 Availa 4) tub has been good. Number one, they are convenient to use with no waste and controlled cost. They work for us in that our pulls are down 30-40% and we've noticed less foot problems and foot rot.
