prickly pearPrickly pear and other species of cacti may interfere with movement and handling of livestock and with forage utilization, cause serious livestock health problems, and compete with desirable forage plants. These plants are extremely tolerant of drought and harsh conditions and left alone can increase by about 33% per year.

J&N Feed and Seed stocks Surmount, a premium herbicide for the control of prickly pear and other cacti. Surmount® herbicide by Dow AgroScience provides premium pricklypear control and non-2,4-D weed control.

• Premier prickly pear and cholla cactus control
• Absorbed through roots, foliage and stems
• Gentle to desirable grasses while controlling a broad spectrum of weeds – the best choice for kochia control.
• Pre-emergence and soil residual activity controls weeds that emerge after application

Surmount herbicide also controls many other tree, brush and cactus species, including locust, rose, blackberry and Chinese tallowtree. Weeds controlled include thistles, horsenettle, ironweed, ragweed, kochia and many others. Surmount should be applied when leaves of woody species are fully expanded for optimum control. Cactus species in the southern United States are best controlled when Surmount is applied in the fall.

Spring Deer & Gamebird Food Plot Mixes

Monday, May 2nd, 2016

food plot mixPick up your Spring Deer & Gamebird Food Plot Mixes at J&N Feed and Seed. Serious deer hunters know how beneficial food plots can be in the health and size of deer. An average adult deer will consume 6 pounds of feed per day. This means that one deer can be supported on roughly 22 acres. However, body size, health and antler size are going to be well under their potential because of the poor average protein content of the native vegetation. Deer need about 16% protein to express their potential, especially during fawn rearing and antler growth. 

It is entirely possible that spring and summer are the times when your deer herd needs you the most! Some would argue that supplemental feeding is enough.  But even if you do it right, it is shown that no matter what you feed or how you feed it deer, will only consume 20% to 25% of their diet from the supplemental feed. So you are not making a big enough impact on their nutritional intake. You cannot assume that you can forget about deer now and they will automatically be big healthy wall hangers next fall.

J & N Feed and Seed has spring food plot seed mixes by MBS. We’ve got the Spring Deer Blend and the Spring Game Bird Blend. Both food plot mix blends are manufactured in Denton, Texas and formulated for this area of the state. Stop by and get ready to plant your seed plot today.
