Cattle ranchers in Texas are at the
mercy of the weather when it comes
to raising hay for their herds. High
temperatures and seasons of drought
take their toll on hay crops needed to
feed the cattle.
AGGRAND Dealer Roy Cusack of
Cuero, Texas gets his edge using
AGGRAND Natural Fertilizer. “This
AGGRAND fertilizer really works,”
Cusack said. He has been diligently
applying AGGRAND Natural 4-3-3 to
his fi elds for the past fi ve years.
Cusack has been in the cattle busi-
ness around Cuero for 10 years.
“Right now I have about 1,800 acres,
plus some lease land, and run more
than 200 mother cows who like to eat year ’round
since they are expected to have calves every year so I
can make money.
“Anyone in the ranching business knows you need

conditions in our area, yielded 139 big round bales for
an increase of 58 percent more hay. This happened
because we were using the natural AGGRAND fertilizer
4-3-3.” Cusack said he applied the fertilizer after the

“Not only does AGGRAND produce more hay, which
is worth a lot of money to me, but it also increases the
root development of my grass, improves the nutri-
tional value of this crop, helps to resist the drought
that was an issue this year, and builds up the soil qual-
ity by increasing the microbial activity and more
earthworms in the soil,” Cusack said.
“The cost of using AGGRAND is about one third or
less of using conventional fertilizers. Any smart farm
and ranch operator who wants to be profi table and
