Posted by Rio Nutrition on May 18, 2015 11:31:11 AM

We’ve listened to ranchers across the nation and understand your challenges. To meet your feeding option needs, we’ve come up with solutions that work as hard as you do.

We know you appreciate the value that Rio Nutrition products bring to the table in terms of cow performance, calving, weight gain on calves and yearlings, breed-up and the list goes on. However, what we have to offer is so much broader. Here is a run-down of our large range of feeding options.

Riomax Tub Choices

Rio Feeding OptionsWhen it comes to tub packaging options; we have a variety of choices available to fit your needs.

  • Original Orange Plastic Tub – Iconic orange 250lb. tub that’s seen in pastures across the country. This is by far our most popular option and is a great fit where plastic tubs are traditionally used.
  • Envirotub™ - Biodegradable, edible tub is a popular, time-saving option for ranchers because they don’t have to run around after containers. Cattle eat the sides as they consume the product. It’s is especially useful for large pastures, mountain terrain, and forested pastures.
  • Smaller 125lb. Tub – Both the biodegradable Envirotub™ and the orange plastic tub are available in a less back breaking 125lb. size.
  • RangeRocket™ The Original Lick Sled™ – Low profile sled is the newest addition to the range of feeding options. This easy to move 250lb. tub can be pulled behind an ATV or horse. It provides a welcomed solution to rotational grazing, easy relocation of the tub for grazing management purposes, prevention of pasture damage or blowout and easy access for horned cattle.

The Riomax tubs are highly fortified, low consumption lick tubs with a low cost to feed and a strong focus on digestion. Riomax specializes in cost effective livestock nutrition by offering solutions to livestock producers across America.

Riograndé Loose Minerals

Another popular feeding option is our conventional bag mineral. This loose mineral can be easily moved using an ATV or with pack horses.
