Midwestern BioAg was founded by a dairy nutritionist nearly 40 years ago with a single goal: Help dairies improve milk production from the ground up. By focusing on soil health, we’ve found ways to increase both forage yields and quality. That’s why we’ve stayed focused on the foundation of all farm success – soil health.
Our crop inputs leverage the power of soil microbes to yield forages with higher levels of digestible fiber, protein, and essential minerals such as calcium. On-farm and independent research trials prove that our program can increase the quality and quantity of forages grown. As a result, milk production per acres rises, and out-of-pocket supplemental mineral costs decline.
Soil nutrient deficiencies and inadequate pH levels are serious yield-limiting factors. Calcium, boron, and other nutrients such as sulfur play significant roles in improving forage yields and quality. Using our soil amendments, producers can correct nutrient deficiencies and improve pH levels to grow higher-yielding, more nutrient-dense forages.
Midwestern BioAg’s dry fertilizer blends optimize plant growth and forage quality by providing balanced nutrition for both the soil and the crop. Beyond NPK, our blends contain essential secondary and micronutrients to yield quality forages that support the nutrition needs of today’s high-performing dairy cattle. As a result, growers on our program benefit from an improved bottom line by reducing the need for purchased feeds and nutritional supplements.
At Midwestern BioAg, we understand that fertilizers ingredient quality is more important than NPK numbers on the tag. We select fertilizer ingredients to create balanced blends that meet the needs of the soil and the crop for optimal performance.
Our fertilizers are:
Our L-CBF product line can be applied to regrowth after harvest to boost both forage yield and quality. Made from a molasses base, L-CBF contains sugar to help stimulate soil life and increase plant nutrient availability. L-CBF can be added to herbicides to help drift while also speeding regrowth, allowing growers to intensify harvest schedules without sacrificing plant health and yield.
Our forage seed varieties have been carefully selected for yield potential, feed quality, disease and pest resistance, and regional adaptability. Options include both pure alfalfa and grass mixes for all types fo livestock in a variety of production stages.
