Having issues with a crop field? Bring us a sample plant to look at, or have us come take a look! Need a soil sample? We will gladly send your soil sample to the lab, write recommendations, and discuss your results with you when we get them back! Not sure what to feed your livestock? Give us a call! We can work with you and your goals to develop a ration that will meet the nutritional needs of your livestock.
