We have featured the product Farmatan many times here on The Ranch It Up Radio Show.  And many of you have reached out with questions.  Each operation is special and unique so we share more general details and success stories of producers who are using the product and say they are never looking back.  It helps keep scours and coccidiosis in check.  The 70th Annual Red Angus Association of America Convention just wrapped up in Denver.  We have highlights and focal points to the talks along with what is the focus of Red Angus Breeders going forward.  It’s all about developing alliances with the various different aspects of our industry and adding value to your calf crop.  We have it all for you in this jam-packed episode of The Ranch It Up Radio Show!  As always Tigger & BEC and the Ranch It Up crew dive into the latest agriculture news, rodeo action not to miss, and cover the cattle markets.


Imogene Ingredients works to access specialty feed ingredients at competitive costs from sources around the world.  New regulations and technologies are changing the feed industry. Ingredients that would not have been used 10 years ago are considered mainstream today. Coating technologies have increased the efficiency of ingredients and further research of enzymes, amino acids and naturally occurring antibiotic alternatives continue to change our perception of what is economical in today’s ration formulations.

FARMATAN by Imogene Ingredients is nature’s answer!  Naturally produced tannic acid has been used for generations in Europe to protect animals from pathogens that can attack the immune system.  Now, Farmatan is available here, and can be mixed in a TMR, liquid form, and in tubs!  This is a must-have tool for anyone in the cattle business, from the cow/calf operation to the feeding industry and any others in between! 


Red Angus females are in high demand from commercial producers far and wide. Their longevity, fertility, adaptability, and efficiency, coupled with their good disposition, make them the ideal cow for today’s producers.  Data from Superior Livestock has shown that Red Angus females command up to $17/cwt more than females of all other breed types, which solidifies the fact that Red Angus cows can position your farm or ranch to thrive in today’s volatile markets.

 Additional data¹ from Superior Livestock show that bred Red Angus heifers command an average of $150 more per head than all other breed types ($140 more than Angus-sired, $133 more than English x Continental and $177 more than Brahman-influenced bred heifers).

Serious data for serious consideration: what can Red Angus do for your herd and your bank account?
