Farmers Marketing Association 4545 Madison St Denver, Colorado
I started feeding the Winnemucca Mudd – 14% Dairy Ration manufactured by Farmers Marketing associates in Denver. In two months, I discontinued the feeding of this and for two months I fed a competitive 14% Dairy Ration. Being on DHIA, I noticed a definite increase in production and butterfat while feeding the Winnemucca Mudd Dairy Ration and a slumping in both when feeding the other ration. Both rations were fed for two full testing periods.
I milk 52 head of Holstein cows of which 12 are registered. In February, my record was 12,894 pounds milk and 433 pounds fat. In February, exactly one year later, my production was 14,645 pounds milk and 473 pounds fat and it is still climbing rapidly.
I have been building this herd since 1959, and this is the first real significant change I have seen in my production. This increase came at a period when most producers have fallen in production due to poor feed quality.
The overall condition of my herd is very good and I have had very little problems with breeding, Mastitis, or other low-grade infections.
I believe Winnemucca Mudd is a very worthwhile additive in a dairyman’s feeding program.

Dear Mr. Baxter,
On February 4, we started to feed your Winnemucca Mudd to the 4000 head of Holstein Dairy Heifers that are fed for California Dairy Farmers. These heifers are fed at the W.B. Whitely yards at Oakley, Idaho.
Mr. Whitney has his own mill where he chops and rolls feed that he raises or buys from farmers in this area.
These heifers are bred by me and, as herdsman, I have watched over them. 60 days before calving they are shipped back to California.
As herdsman, I can say that there has been a cut back in the feed of ten ton a day in the hay and grain, and they don’t bawl as they did when the truck came for feed. These heifers seem to be more contented and have stopped eating the dirt under the fences and the fence post as they did before.
It is a little early to tell but there seem to be a greater conception rate. This will be checked by our bookkeeper on the newly bred herd that was put in the breeding pens April 6.
If the conception rate is on upgrade and with the decrease of feed intake, this Winnemucca Mudd in the feeding of dairy and cattle will certainly prove to be a big step forward in the feeding projects.

Dear Mr. Sexton,
This letter is to inform you of the results of our 16 dairy cows that were on test from April 24, 1963 although we mixed 5% Winnemucca Mudd food supplement with Milo and fed each cow two and one-half gallons per day. They also fed eight bales of hay per day for the sixteen head.
The milk production increased 10% for the total herd, and the cows were fed no other supplement. After about two weeks time we cut the amount of hay fed, five bales of hay, as it was all they could eat. Before we started feeding Winnemucca Mudd, they always cleaned up eight bales of hay daily.
The cows are now on pasture and have held their production with grass and the same amount of grain. The cows seem to be more contented so we are going to continue to feed them Winnemucca Mudd from now on, so it is important that you get the five ton to me immediately.
You may use this letter to show how Winnemucca Mudd works.
The coat of the cows seems to be shiny and slick and is sort of glossy. I suppose that is because of the vitamins and minerals in Winnemucca Mudd. Will look forward to you coming to Loa to see the herd in the near future.
Very truly yours, Ural T. Howard
