Early last fall, our Hubbard Feeds representative stopped by the ranch to give us a heads up on the Blueprint® mineral program. We were very interested in the technology and research behind Blueprint. We discussed the program with ranch owner Tony Marletto and we decided to feed Blueprint to our heifer calves and first-calf heifers. The results from the heifers on Blueprint were the best we have ever had. On the 63 head of heifer calves we had a pregnancy rate of 100% and on our 79 firstcalf heifers we only had one open. This was much better than the competitor’s high-end chelated mineral we continued to feed our mature cow herd, which only had a pregnancy rate of 89%. We are definitely going to continue on the Blueprint program.

We have been buying our mineral from Hubbard Feeds for years, but last December our sales representative suggested we use Blueprint® through the winter into breeding season. The Blueprint technology and potential was interesting, and the price was also very comparable, so we gave it a try. We saw good health on the cattle, but what really sold us on the Blueprint program was the fact that we had a 100% pregnancy rate in a 52-day bull turn out.

This year we’ve had the healthiest calves ever. Our veterinary expenses were much less once we started using the CRYSTALYX® Blueprint product, in fact our veterinary clinic wondered if we’d left them because they didn’t see us as much this year!

"I have been using both Blueprint® Fescue and Cattle Mineral for over two years. I was dealing with a lot of fescue-related troubles when my Hubbard rep first called on me – lost tails, open cows and bad feet. My rep guaranteed he could fix these problems and he did. I now have two generations with no lost tails or fescue foot and my conception rate has increased. Feeding the mineral is really simple and I like that my rep brings not only product information, but relevant industry knowledge to the table."

“We currently use Blueprint® Mineral with Bio-Mos®2 and Blueprint® Fescue on our operation. We started using the calving mineral to combat scours in first and second season calves and scours just seemed to disappear. Despite some wet springs, calves have experienced stronger starts and have a lot more vigor. We then decided to give the fescue mineral a try. Even in the heat of the day, cows will be out eating and our tail loss has really improved. We were also having trouble with wind blowing away our previous mineral because it was too fine, but we don’t experience this issue with Blueprint because it is more coarse and consistent.”
