Diamond V Yeast
« on: January 26, 2012, 06:47:34 PM »
Last year we fed Diamond V Yeast to the kid's 4-H steer and fell in love with it.  I live in a very rural area and I can't find it. Previous business we got from went out of business.  My small time vet and feed store can't seem to get it.  Is there a dealer / mail order company that people have had good luck with?  I'm located in SE Oregon
Any help is greatly appreciated.

It's made in Cedar Rapids, IA.  I will check with the local guys about sales in Oregon.  It does work well.  Interesting story was reported a couple years back in the Des Moines Register about Diamond V employees.  The company's  health insurance provider inquired with the company as to why their health care claims were so low relative to other companies.  It was concluded that the employees exposure to the animal care products actually improved their health and decreased trips to the doctor for routine illness such as flu and colds.  For me that says a lot.

Why, yes, I did grow up in a barn; thank you for asking.

Thanks any info / contacts would be great.  I mentioned this on another post a few weeks back, but I had a friend who used Diamond V yeast at Oregon State Univerity on his senior project.  At the OSU steer barn they fed two different groups of steers the same feed with diamond V being the only difference in group A & B.  The steers who were fed Diamond V with thier feed gained consistently a half a pound more per day than the group without.
I have seen years when some steers go off feed the steers on it never stopped.  I did not have any luck on the web site.

Nick is the regional sales guy for your area.  Give him a call.  He would be your best source of information for what you want.
