Convenience, saving time on ID supplies offered
Cattle producers have so much to do in so little time—ranch and cattle activities, work and family.
Everything needs time for planning, otherwise producers and their families will find themselves needing to take off from work and drive into town just for supplies that could have been ordered online and shipped direct.
Whether ear tags are put on after calves are born or if producers are vaccinating and weaning them, or are applying ear tags to all the cattle for the first time, CattleTags.com makes it easy to stock up on ear tags and accessories.
The options for ear tags have come a long way. Instead of having to write numbers manually on blank tags as each animal comes into the chute, numbers can already be printed on the tags at a cost-effective price. A ranch name and telephone number can be included on the tags, so the owner can be contacted in case an animal is found. In addition, including the logo on the tags is another way to promote and advertise the cattle. With CattleTags, ordering anytime day, night or weekend is easy—products and options are clear and understandable, and prices are displayed with the product descriptions on the page.

Company's data service can help crop managers
DuPont Pioneer offers two field-analysis tools that help growers with estimated yield resultsÂ—regardless of the brand of seed planted.
Available through Pioneer Field360 services, the data tools—called treatment analysis and post-harvest calibration—provide an unbiased view of hybrid performance across a field.
The treatment-analysis tool connects yield results to soil maps, fertility maps and as-planted maps, providing a report card on hybrid performance by unique environment. With this information, a grower can focus on his hybrid selections for next year. DuPont Pioneer is the only seed company offering treatment analysis to growers. The post-harvest calibration tool uses a grower’s scale tickets to confirm yield information and to develop a better overall picture of product performance.
With Pioneer Field360 services growers can work with their Pioneer reps to enter information about what was planted and how, including hybrids and varieties, soil nutrients, soil types, chemical applications and other management practices. Growers can then use data from their yield monitors to understand how inputs and practices affect yields. Pioneer Field360 services allow growers to understand what’s happening within a field and make management changes to improve productivity.
These tools can help develop a variable-rate seeding plan by pushing plant populations in areas with higher yield potential and/or cutting back on seeding rates in areas with lower yield potential.
Another benefit of Pioneer Field360 services is that the tools are available via mobile. The Pioneer Field360 Notes app allows growers to organize field-by-field agronomic information and communicate with Pioneer sales professionals, account managers and agronomists. For example, a grower can note an observed pest or disease threat and use a global positioning system to identify the precise location in the field. This can help target next year’s pesticide and/or fungicide applications and puts information at a grower’s fingertips.

Post-emergence herbicide gets OK from EPA
Syngenta, Greensboro, N.C., has announced that Callisto GT post-emergence herbicide has received registration from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and all major corn-producing states.
A premixed formulation of Callisto and Touchdown herbicides, Callisto GT provides post-emergence control of emerged broadleaf weeds and grasses, plus residual broadleaf weed control in glyphosate-tolerant corn.
Research and development trials conducted in 2012 showed that Callisto GT provided 95 percent control of pigweeds, including waterhemp, Palmer amaranth and redroot pigweed.
When AAtrex 4L herbicide was added, control increased to 97 percent.
Callisto GT targets emerged broadleaf weeds and grasses, such as Palmer amaranth, lambsquarters, waterhemp and ragweeds. Following a post-emergence application in up to 30-inch corn, susceptible weeds take up the herbicide through the treated foliage and cease growth soon after application. Other Callisto Plant Technology brands include Halex GT, Lexar EZ, Lumax EZ, Callisto Xtra and Zemax.
