CPC is a family-owned company based in Kentucky that backgrounds over 100,000 calves a year. CPC has used a variety of rations in this process. After many years of research trials, along with the help of some of the nation’s top nutritionists, they have put together a program to help producers realize greater profits with a tested and proven program.
Cattle going through the Stargro Program typically overall become healthy with excellent growth and offer maximum profits to producers. The Stargro Program also provides producers with improved marketing potential because of the reliability and profitability of animals on this program.
The program combines a vaccination, feed and block supplementation program to create a good straight animal with the right amount of flesh, and will offer the proper environment for continued growth and performance at the feedlot level. It is also designed to be fed with little or no hay supplementation that would be very favorable in a year with reduced hay production. We are now into our fourth year of using this program in Alabama and we continue to see amazing results from growth and cost standpoints.
If you are preconditioning calves, developing heifers or bulls, or looking for a high-quality, effective creep feed, then lean on our experience with over 100,000 calves a year.
Give me a call at 256-947-7886 and I will be glad to talk with you about your current feeding program as well as the Stargro Program.
