New Balance Commodities is committed to providing the highest quality services and products to our customers. We understand that today’s livestock producer has a number of choices when it comes to complete dry feed rations. Some of the biggest concerns that producers have relayed to us regarding complete feeds are nutritional value, digestibility, safety and price. Our blends not only offer high energy and protein values but are highly digestible, have a high safety factor and since we do not have the cost of pelleting, the rations are much more economical than most commercial feeds.

 

Some of the uses that fit our blended feeds include but are not limited to:

  • Calf Creep

  • Back Grounding Calves

  • Replacement Heifers

  • Supplementing on grass

  • Weaning

Mixing Directions:

This product is designed to be fed to cattle in self-feeders to aide in controlling intake with corn and soybean by-products. NutreBeef© CSI BP can be adjusted depending on a producers targeted intake. Intake can vary depending on type of cattle, age of cattle, environment, feeder placement and feeder management. Cattle still need 25-45% of their daily intake from other feedstuffs including pasture or hay to complete their diet. Forage quality and quantity can also affect intake. Good quality water MUST be available at all times.

Co-Mix Calibrate

  • Designed to control intake on corn co-product diets

  • Added Rumensin for rumen health and feed efficiency

  • Provide a balance of Rumen Degradable and Rumen Un-degradable Protein

  • High Calcium, Vitamins & Trace Minerals for balance with the use of corn by-products

  • Added Thiamine to aid in the prevention of metabolic disorders that can occur when feeding high levels of corn by-product

New Balance Commodities stands to be your complete feed and nutrition service provider in Iowa, Missouri, and all parts of the Mid-West. Corn and Soybean co-products continue to be very reliable and competitively priced feedstuffs in comparison to today's grain prices. Co-Mix, our trademarked co-product blend, has been proven through our individual research, field trials, and most importantly, our customers. Performance and cost of gain benefits are realized on higher roughage where starch can be a negative.

New Balance Commodities and Cargill® Animal Nutrition now developed a product that will give producers the flexibility to control intakes of Co-Mix and our other co-products while using a self-feeder. Co-Mix CALIBRATE offers producers convenience in supplementation and reduced costs versus traditional corn limiting programs.

Key Considerations

  • Always have an accurate test for your on farm feeds stuffs and supplement appropriately
  • Always keep a good handle on body condition, work with a "second set of eyes" to help evaluation
  • Plan ahead
  • Fall post weaning is always the best time to add condition to thin cows; "breeder minerals or supplement" are best served being utilized 45 days prior to calving
