  • Convenient
  • Cost Savings

Starters:

# 1 Goal of Starting Cattle: Get Them Eating! Bottom Line – – – QLF animal feed supplements provides Essential Nutrition for Optimal Health and Performance.
The receiving period is the most critical time in the feedlot. Calves experience the greatest amount of stress and disease challenge leading up to and during this period while feed and nutrient intakes are the most depressed. Proper nutrition is important to supply the immune system with the needed tools to respond effectively to eliminate or lessen the severity of the disease challenge.

Finishers:

# 1 Goal of Finishing Cattle: Efficient, Profitable Gain! Bottom Line – – – QLF Liquid Feed Supplements Enhances Feed Efficiency and Greater Additive Efficacy.
Finishing cattle is done with one primary goal in mind: Efficiency! Feed efficiency is largely dependent on a consistent supply of nutrients and additives to the rumen. Therefore, improving ration consistency promotes more efficient gains. QLF Liquid Feed Supplements have been shown to increase ration consistency.

Frequently Asked Questions

What options do I have with ionophores in liquid supplement?

Can QLF Feedlot products be fed free choice?

NO. Absolutely not. QLF feedlot products must be mixed in or top dressed on high grain rations for cattle weighing 600 pounds or more.

Will QLF Feedlot products pump in cold weather?

Yes, this is one thing that is unique about QLF products vs. the competition. We use products in Minnesota and North Dakota with minus 30 degrees or more with no pumping problems. However, do use reasonable precautions with set-up design.

Will QLF Starter products pump in cold weather?

Yes, but keep in mind the problem usually occurs in the line to the pump and/or in the pump. The cold air will penetrate the small areas such as the line much more quickly than the large volume of product in the storage tank.

Can QLF products be mixed in a tank with other products?

No. Storage tanks that have been used for competitor’s product should be cleaned before putting in ours. If there is a buildup of sludge in the tank from years past, and we put a good quality feed on top of it, problems could come from feeding the sludge.

What is the shelf life of QLF feedlot products?

We recommend turning inventory every 60 days or less. This is more important during the summer, since the heat inside storage tanks can cause added stress on the gums that suspend the ingredients.

What is the recommended procedure for adding our feedlot products to a TMR?

Load the corn first, then the liquid, and finally the roughage. This allows the liquid to be pre-mixed with the corn, which will in turn more easily mix with the roughage.

Will all the solid ingredients in a product like Beef Starter stay in suspension?

Yes. We do recommend turning inventory in a 60 day period.
