Don't guess . . . test!

Soil Testing

Soil tests are essential for productive gardens and fields.     

2 cups of soil is required for testing
Fee: $20.00 per soil sample


Hay Testing

Do you know the nutrient value of your hay or are you just guessing? Knowing the nutrient value of your hay supply allows producers to make informed decisions on how much supplemental feed is necessary to meet the nutritional needs of your animals.
