Feed costs, hay costs, supplement costs, vaccine costs… they add up, there’s no doubt about that. Have you ever felt like there is really no way to escape these expenses, and much less, increase your profitability on your ranch?

A handful of ranchers across the nation are using a protein and mineral supplement called Riomax. Riomax is known to have a higher upfront cost than many cattle supplements, so why, in these challenging times, would a rancher use this ‘expensive’ product? 

Let’s discover the ‘why’ behind ranchers who use Riomax®.

Stretching Forages

One of the biggest goals that Riomax has is to help you get more out of your existing forages. Getting more out of them means saving hay, saving feed, and stretching pastures. 

Now, because it enables you to save forage and run more efficiently, Riomax does come with a higher upfront cost. But when you start seeing your hay and forage savings, you will start to realize the offset effect. Many ranchers have saved enough hay by using Riomax®, that the value of their hay savings more than offsets what the Riomax® tub costs.

Here are some real-life examples.

A similar thread runs through all of these stories across North America. When you use the right tools that help you squeeze more out of every mouthful, you can save hay; the value of which will help pay for the product. 

We love talking in examples, so let’s put it in a completely different scenario. If we were trying to sell you a new pickup, you might automatically say, I can't afford it. But, if we explained to you that with the number of miles you do, the fuel savings that this pickup will offer you can offset or pay for your monthly payment on the pickup, you might change your mind! Now you start thinking, what color is this pickup? Does it have leather seats... air conditioning? 

Why Should You Use Riomax?

You may be asking yourself this question, and that’s completely understandable. If you don’t know why you should use something, there’s a good chance you don’t need it.

But, think of Riomax® as that pickup that pays itself off. Use it because not only will it offset its own cost through forage savings, it will also provide an array of other important results, like improved conception rates, better calf health, increased weaning weights, and more. 

Ultimately, it comes down to helping you, as ranchers become more profitable and more sustainable. Times are tough! We get that. And that's why it's so important to use tools like this offset program, so you can make more money, stretch your forages, extend your pastures, get more out of what you've already got. Squeeze more out of every mouthful, every acre, every bale, every cow, every day.
