Pick Up Hay Baling Supplies at J&N Feed

Friday, June 28th, 2019

Hay baling supplies at J&N Feed and Seed in Graham, TexasPick up your hay baling supplies at J&N Feed and Seed. From bale spears to bale wrappers, whatever your hay needs are J&N has the hay baling supplies you need!

Texas producers grow some of the best quality hay in the south. Producing high-yielding and top-quality hay requires attention to harvest management, soil fertility, pest management, and good storage methods. The University of Arkansas Division of Agriculture Research & Extension has some good tips for producing quality hay.

Tips For Producing Quality Hay

1. Forage tests to determine hay quality. This is important for feeding as well as being an important factor for selling hay.

2. Harvest Early! Forage maturity at harvest is # 1-factor affecting quality. Short hay harvest intervals favor good quality.

3. Rake and Bale to minimize leaf loss. Leaves are of higher quality than stems. Retaining leaves during raking and baling helps maintain quality.

4. Fertilize Correctly. Low fertility leads to weeds, a low percentage of forage leaf, poor forage persistence, and stemmy hay.

5. Add Legumes. Legumes are of higher quality at a given stage of growth than grasses. Adding legumes in mixtures with grasses can improve hay quality. Management for legume/grass hay includes all of the above.

6. Cover Hay if Possible. Barns or tarps work well. If no cover is available to stack in rows at least 3 ft. apart in the open, high on a well-drained slope, preferably on poles, crushed rock, or pallets. Storage losses can easily exceed 25% on poorly stored hay. High-quality hay spoils faster than poor quality hay if left uncovered.

Snake Boots & Snake Guards

Sunday, June 23rd, 2019

snake bootsProtect yourself from venomous snake bites with snake boots and snake guards from J&N Feed and Seed. The spring and summer months bring an increase in outdoor activities and the end of hibernation for rattlesnakes. As snakes begin to emerge and leave their dens, until their return during cooler fall weather, this movement and activity increase the incidence of snake bites. Of the 27 species of rattlesnakes in the United States, 11 are found in Texas.

Protect yourself from rattlesnake strikes with snake boots and wrap around snake guards from J&N.

Pursuit Snake Proof Boots by  MUCK® – For protection against rattlesnake strikes, this tough exterior is layered with a durable full rubber coating along with 4mm of neoprene while MUCK®Boots’ exclusive XpressCool™ fabric lining keeps a hunter’s feet cool and comfortable in warmer weather. The end result is a briar resistant durable boot, that’s cool enough to confidently hunt in warm regions of the country where snakes often pose a threat.

Chippewa Snake Boots – stylish yet constructed to withstand the strikes of venomous snakes thanks to the combination of lining and outside leather thickness.

live animal trapsRelocate Critters With Duke Live Animal Traps. Is the cold weather bringing wildlife and unwanted critters a little too close for comfort? Live animal traps are the most humane option for removing unwanted animals from an environment. J&N Feed and Seed offers a full line of Duke Traps.  Depending on the critter you need to trap, we’ve got the live trap for you. Duke Standard and Heavy Duty Cage Traps offer the ultimate variety in Humane Live Catch Cage Traps today. The Standard Cage Traps feature steel rod reinforced Spring Loaded Doors, pressure sensitive trip mechanisms and a durable, concealable green powder-coated finish.

Not sure what to use as bait in your Duke Trap? Canned or dry pet food works very well for trapping bait for raccoon, rats, opossums, skunks, feral cats and dogs. Rabbits and squirrels are vegetarian so meat-based baits are not effective. Squirrels respond well to dried corn and nuts. Commercial trapping baits are available for most animals.

Fourth of July Pet Safety Tips

Wednesday, June 12th, 2019

Fourth of July Pet Safety TipsDid you know, more pets go missing on the Fourth of July than any other day of the year? Follow these Fourth of July Pet Safety Tips to keep your pooch, happy and safe during the holiday.

For many people, nothing beats lounging in the backyard on the Fourth of July with good friends and family—including furry friends. While it may seem like a great idea to reward your pet with scraps from the grill and bring him along to watch fireworks, in reality, some festive foods and activities can be potentially hazardous to him. The ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center offers the following tips:

  • Never leave alcoholic drinks unattended where pets can reach them.Alcoholic beverages have the potential to poison pets. If ingested, the animal could become very intoxicated and weak, severely depressed or could go into a coma. Death from respiratory failure is also a possibility in severe cases.
  • Do not apply any sunscreen or insect repellent product to your pet that is not labeled specifically for use on animals. Ingestion of sunscreen products can result in drooling, vomiting, diarrhea, excessive thirst and lethargy. The misuse of insect repellent that contains DEET can lead to neurological problems.
  • Always keep matches and lighter fluid out of your pets’ reach. Certain types of matches contain chlorates, which could potentially damage blood cells and result in difficulty breathing—or even kidney disease in severe cases. Lighter fluid can be irritating to skin, and if ingested can produce gastrointestinal irritation and central nervous system depression. If lighter fluid is inhaled, aspiration pneumonia and breathing problems could develop.
  • Keep your pets on their normal diet. Any change, even for one meal, can give your pet severe indigestion and diarrhea. This is particularly true for older animals who have more delicate digestive systems and nutritional requirements. And keep in mind that foods such as onions, chocolate, coffee, avocado, grapes, raisins, salt and yeast dough can all be potentially toxic to companion animals.
  • Do not put glow jewelry on your pets, or allow them to play with it.While the luminescent substance contained in these products is not highly toxic, excessive drooling and gastrointestinal irritation could still result from ingestions, and intestinal blockage could occur from swallowing large pieces of the plastic containers.
  • Keep citronella candles, insect coils and tiki torch oil products out of reach. Ingestion can produce stomach irritation and possibly even central nervous system depression. If inhaled, the oils could cause aspiration pneumonia in pets.
  • Never use fireworks around pets! While exposure to lit fireworks can potentially result in severe burns and/or trauma to the face and paws of curious pets, even unused fireworks can pose a danger. Many types contain potentially toxic substances, including potassium nitrate, arsenic, and other heavy metals.
  • Loud, crowded fireworks displays are no fun for pets, who can become frightened or disoriented by the sound. Please resist the urge to take them to Independence Day festivities, and opt instead to keep them safe from the noise in a quiet, sheltered and escape-proof area at home.
  • Be prepared in the event that your pet does escape by keeping your pets’ IDs up to date! It’s a good idea for all your animal companions—even indoor-only pets—to always wear a collar with an ID tag that includes your name, current phone number, and any relevant contact information. July 1 is National ID Your Pet Day, which serves as an annual check-in to make sure your pets’ identification tags and microchip information is up to date.

FireDisc Portable Propane Cooker

Thursday, June 6th, 2019

The FireDisc Portable Propane Cooker is now available at J&N Feed and Seed. These revolutionary cookers are designed to go anywhere. Unlike grills, which don’t disassemble, require charcoal and the disposal of spent charcoal, and are a pain to pack, FireDisc is easy to bring along. The clever 3-piece design makes assembly/disassembly an absolute breeze (no tools or hardware). It operates on readily available propane canisters, and it stores flat. The flexible stand adapts easily to uneven surfaces, allowing you to select your outdoor cooking spot for the view, not the flat ground. And, yes, FireDisc is built tough to withstand the rigors of a lifetime of outdoor use and abuse. FireDisc is “Built to Haul.”

The entire FireDisc system consists of two stand sections that nest together without tools or hardware plus the disc itself, which sets onto the stand. It takes mere seconds to assemble or disassemble, and the three pieces lay flat for easy transport or storage. It comes in two sizes, 24 inches, and 36 inches. We stock both sizes, and can special order any of the accessories or specialty colors. Stop by J&N Feed and Seed for FireDisc Portable Propane Cookers.

Product Description

The Deep 24-Inch Short gives you the cooking versatility offered by the walled disc (large volumes of food, soups, stews, and deep frying) with the shorter (24-inch) stand that’s easier to pack and store. This is the perfect model for shore lunches since the shorter stand takes up less space in your boat, or on trips and treks where space is at a premium.

Our best seller, the Deep 36-inch Tall gives you the ability to cook the most food, including soups and stews. The walled disc is designed to contain high volumes of food and liquids, which also makes it ideal for deep frying. The tall (36-inch) stand puts the cooking at convenient table height.
