Riomax® packaging options include far more than just a basic 250lb plastic tub.
Why? We believe you should be able to get product to your animals – no matter where you’re at or what the situation is.
Mini: 60 lb Plastic Tub
This tiny tub is our smallest plastic tub option. At only 60 pounds, almost anyone can handle it. Not only is it easy to move by hand, it can also fit on the back of a 4-wheeler or be packed on a horse! It is shipped and stacked in lots of 20.
Envirotub®: 125 lb Biodegradable Tub
This edible tub is unlike most tubs, and it is hard to beat. Here’s why: you never have to worry about picking up after it. If you get tired of chasing after plastic barrels, this is the tub for you – it simply disappears. A few awesome qualities of the Envirotub® include:
- 12” high, making it hard to tip over
- 8-sided – for structural strength
- Time-saver: you only need to make one trip to put the tubs out
- Garbage reducer
- Environmentally friendly
The other unique thing about the Envirotub® is that 2 of them can fit snugly into an orange sled that we designed (see below). These tubs are shipped and stacked in lots of 15.
Rangerocket®: The Original Lick Sled®
Available exclusively at Riomax®! These sleds snugly fit 2 Envirotub® 125-pounders – so you can either keep the tubs in the sled, or use it to transport them if you are doing any intensive or quick grazing throughout the week. They make transport extremely easy, as there is no need to lug or lift heavy tubs. Simply hook it to the back of whatever you drive around your pasture on, and you’re good to go.
The Rangerocket® is mostly used for range cattle, but it is also idea for sheep and goats due to its low-profile design. The sled and hitch are sold separately, and it fits 125 lb Envirotub® refills.
BioBrix™: 60 lb Biodegradable Brick
The latest and greatest addition to the Riomax® family. The BioBrix™ is about the shape of your cellphone, and probably the easiest to handle out of all our packaging options. Besides being easier to handle and transport, it is also biodegradable, so it has all the benefits of our Envirotub®. BioBrix are:
- Pack-horse friendly
- Ideal for large pastures
- But also convenient for small groups like calving sheds and sick pens
- Perfect for government land; they’re small and don’t stick out
- Our most portable option yet
- And of course, biodegradable
BioBrix™ are shipped and stacked in lots of 36, and are available in any of the Riomax® lick tub formulas.
Loose Mineral: 50 lb Bag
And lastly, Riomax® loose mineral, which is its very own formula. Loose mineral is a good option for those of you who feed a TMR, as the Riomax® loose mineral can be added to it. The other time loose mineral is a good fit is if you have consumption issues. This way, you can set out a certain amount of mineral, knowing your cows will not over-consume. Loose mineral is sold in 50 lb bags, and shipped and stacked in lots of 40.
At the end of the day, we simply want to give you all the tools you need in order to utilize everything you already have.
