Testimonials

"[We feed Culbac®] because we’ve seen better feed intake and healthier cattle. And our calves have taken off a lot better with the liquid (HealthyStart®)."

Matt Rohl | Ellsworth, WI
Rohl Dairy

"Culbac® has made a big impact on our calf raising. The calves are livelier and we use a lot less drugs and see a lot less scour problems. We feel Culbac® is the first product that has worked the way the salesman has said it was supposed to work."

Ken & Kelly Seubert | Wisconsin Dairy Products

"I’ve been using Culbac® (Animal) for nearly four years. It really increased my cows feed intake and I got better herd health and improved conception rates."

Terry Napierala| Mayer, MN
Culbac® user for 4 years

"I’ve used Culbac® for Animals for 20 years and I wouldn’t farm without it. It has reduced my feed costs by as much as 10% and there’s a noticeable impact on the cow’s ability to cope with stress during milk production. I see an improvement in calf health with the liquid (Healthy Start®) the calves have been stronger from birth."

Don Hoese | Mayer, MN
Culbac® user for 20 years

"We have been feeding it (Healthy Start®) to our new born baby dairy calves. They’ve been improving greatly with their scour control. We give them 15 cc starting at day 2 for about a week and with that program we have had great success! I see an improvement in calf health with the liquid (Healthy Start®) the calves have been stronger from birth."

Erin Rohl | Ellsworth, WI
Culbac® user for 10 years

"I’m pretty impressed with it (Culbac® Animal Dry). I’ve noticed the cow’s intake is a little better with it, they eat more. And the health of the cow is really better with it. I am very satisfied with what the product is doing for me right now."

Vernon Breth | Breth Dairy, Stearns County, MN
Feed Culbac® for 3 or 4 years

"We started feeding Culbac® to our young calves and right away noticed reduced scours and they were better at taking off on their feed. The adults eat better, and we have seen less bloat...It really does work!"

Randy Oldenburg | Belle Plaine, MN
Customer since 1978

"I've been feeding Culbac® for about 40 years. On the cows, I have seen better breeding, and they seem to utilize their feed better...with the calves that are a little slower performing, we have seen better appetite."

Patrick O’Brien | Kasson, MN
Customer since 1970

"A small square bale of alfalfa hay was baled in the rain with extra high dosage rates of Culbac® Hay inoculant preservative applied on 18 June, 2010. 4/5 lb per ton or 12.8 ounces per ton hay application. On 2 July 2010, 2 weeks later, the bale tested 35% moisture and was still cool to the touch and a pleasant odor."

Partch Farms | Outlook, WA
Augies Ag Sales | Ephrata, WA

"The Culbac® Hay Product has been a great addition to my custom baling operation. I have been able to bale hay as high as 21% moisture and have had great results in both quality and appearance. I'm glad I can open up my window to bale longer and my customers are happy I can get the hay off the field sooner."

John Estacio Jr. | Hilmar, CA
Owner of Sundown Farms

"I’ve been using Culbac for 5 to 6 years, it’s been a great product. I bale my hay with stem moisture, which means that I don’t let it completely cure out beforehand. Just for the fact that I don’t know if I will get enough dew to hold the leaves on. The moisture content of the stems is usually fairly high. I really notice a reduction in the amount of bales that are burnt, this is generally caused by too high of moisture. Heat is generated in the bale because of the moisture being too high. I truly believe that it’s [Culbac has] reduced the heat content of the bales [that is] the higher moisture content. I would recommend it to anyone who has to bale with stem moisture. Hopefully that will help any of you hay growers who want to put up quality hay. Thank you very much. "
