Receiving, Starting and Finishing (RSF) Program
|SarTec’s Receiving, Starting and Finishing (RSF) Program is a nice addition to your receiving process. Documented research supports using Yucca at receiving and throughout the feeding program. A recent feeding trial conducted at Kansas State University further demonstrates these findings. For more information about the RSF Program please call 800-472-7832 within the United States, or contact your local SarTec representative.|

Testimonials on Bloat:
“We gave it to some really sick cattle. We gave it alone to see if the benefit was due to the SarStart Plus. By the next day the cattle looked a lot better.”
Feedlot Operator Observations on SarTec’s RSF Program:
"By using the SarTemp grain conditioner, we don't hardly have any bloat but when we do, the boluses work good. All our stressed and long haul cattle get the drench (SarStart Pro) at receiving. I've run tests time and time again and have seen a big difference. I've even used it on gaunt cattle in the sick pen and it helps get them back to eating and drinking quicker. Drenches come and go but I think this one is here to stay; I wouldn't keep using it if didn't work good."|
- Maynard Burl, Rocking E Feeders
"I feel the product (SarStart Plus) helps me start the calves and it's a product worth giving. It helps get the calves to the bunk and eating."
- John Herrmann, CJ Feeders
"Last summer told the story. The loads of incoming cattle that we drenched (SarStart Plus) got on feed right away where the others didn't. It is well worth the benefit. We also give it to cattle in the sick pen. On the sale barn cattle, you can definitely tell the difference. We now give it to all our cattle at receiving."
- Chris Foote, Bouziden Cattle
“We use it (SarStart Plus) routinely on incoming, high-stress calves and feel that we're getting off to a better start than in previous years."
- Bill Nicholas, 5N Feeders
"We use the higher dose and have seen a reduction of bloat and quicker adaptation to their ration. We're able to get our cattle up to the final ration quicker than we did before we started using SarTemp."
- Jeff Sibley, Fowler Feeders
"We use it (SarStart Plus & SarStart Pro) on any high-stress cattle and weaning calves at receiving and again when we revaccinate 7 days later. We feel the drench increases their appetite so they more readily come to the bunk; they eat better and drink better."
- Jeff Sibley, Fowler Feeders
"I mostly use it (SarStart Plus) on unweaned calves and it definitely seems to keep them eating well. The probiotics keep the rumen flora and bacteria going."
- DJ Edwards, DJ Edwards Cattle
"We use the higher dose and it (SarTemp) makes a big improvement in flaking the corn; about a 50% improvement over the (previous) product. I also believe it has helped with daily gain. We had several pens of heifers that gained 4.2 lbs./day and several pens of steers that gained 4.6 lbs/day; normal is about 3.5 - 3.6 lbs./day."
