About Bio-Ag
Bio-Ag Consultants & Distributors is a family-owned and operated company. Our
mission has been to produce and supply products and services that warrant and
support true sustainable agriculture. This business, since our founding in 1982,
has been devoted to understanding and working with nature, then researching
and developing agricultural methods and products that work in co-operation with
nature’s biological systems.


Through our research, we at Bio-Ag have become a major supplier of natural
products and services for livestock and crop production. We have been able to
help so many farmers better utilize their natural resources to reduce their de-
pendency on chemicals and drugs and create an even more profitable business.
Our customers have seen an improvement in the health of their livestock, im-
proved breeding rates, less burnout, fewer calls to the vet and lower cull rates.
We want to continue to support the farmer to be prosperous and to leave the
land naturally healthy and vibrant for future generations.

What Does Bio-Ag Do?
Bio-Ag is an agricultural consulting, manufacturing and distributing company.
We develop and distribute agricultural methods and products that work in co-
operation with nature’s biological systems.

Our company enables farmers to increase their profits and to produce quality
food by strengthening the biological systems on their farms. We supply farm-
ers with well-researched information and products that improve and maintain
the health of their soil, crops and livestock. All Bio-Ag products are selected
for distribution on the basis of their efficiency, ecological soundness, and
economic value.

Our company specializes in solving agricultural problems. We encourage
farmers to create environments that promote quality crops and healthy live-
stock. Our firm carries nutritional supplements and products formulated to
keep each animal in optimal health, plus soil amendments to keep your soil
in optimal health. Conditions differ from one farm to another. Bio-Ag custom-
izes its treatments, taking into account the entire ecosystem in which a crop
or animal exists. We use time-tested methods of treating animal sickness.
Bio-Ag Consultants strives to address the source of each problem rather than
merely treat the symptoms an animal or a crop displays. All Bio-Ag represen-
tatives and distributors are concerned with meeting customer needs.

Bio-Ag carries a diverse product line. Our main focus is on livestock and re-
lated nutritional products, which are shipped internationally, and throughout
the USA and Canada regularly.

Mineral Premixes

The Bio-Ag Difference
Bio-Ag GMO Free Premixes in many respects look no different on the surface
than any other competitor premix. However, one of the decidedly outstanding
features of the Bio-Ag Premixes is the effect of using che-
lates - the Copper, Iron, Cobalt, Zinc and Manganese Cho-      Premixes Available:
line Citrate Chelates which are inputted specifically to
assist the Krebs cycle.                                        • Dairy
                                                               • Beef
Another thing that is of marked difference is the fact that
Bio-Ag Premixes use Selenium Yeast as a source of Sele-        • Goat
nium along with Sodium Selenite. Bio-Ag knows that this        • Sheep
product does not have the toxic side effects associated        • Hog
with straight Sodium Selenite.                                 • Horse
Bio-Ag has also paid attention to the idea of having good      • Poultry
micro flora in the gastro intestinal tract of the animal. To
this end, the addition of our probiotic/plant extract prod-
uct Bio-Lac, is a very important feature of the premix. The probiotic/plant ex-
tract combination, first of all, establishes the proper pH in the stomach and
digestive system. The plant source extract contains numerous types of en-
zymes and many features that stimulate the immune defence mechanism of
the animal. In a hog study Bio-Ag was able to demonstrate a 30 to 50% in-
crease in white blood cells. Bio-Ag also saw far less heavy metals passing
through the manure. This is due to the chelates and the ability of these en-
zymes to break down and utilize more of the minerals. Therefore producing
better mineralization and healthier animals.
Bio-Ag Premixes pay a lot of attention to the correct amounts of elements
such as Methionine, Lysine, Niacin, Vitamin K, Biotin, etc. We believe that
each animal can put out its genetic potential if the proper nutrition is in place.

Bio-Ag’s Attention to Minerals
All minerals are not created equal when it comes to animal nutrition. Bio-Ag
sources and utilizes only those minerals that provide the highest bio-
availability on nutrient value to your animal, giving you maximum return on
your feed investment dollar and less heavy metals.

Special Chelates
Chelated minerals are trace minerals that have been attached to an organic
compound. These chelates take a different pathway than the normal trace
minerals for their absorption. Bio-Ag’s chelates are bound by Citric Acid and
complexed by Choline, free of protein, as opposed to the practice of using
chelated minerals bound by protein.
                                                                                    Premixes
                                                                         Page 7




Proteinate chelates are less expensive than our chelates, however research
studies have shown the following:
    • This Citric Acid/Choline chelate gives a negatively charged chelate and
       a negatively charged chelate is naturally attracted to the positive charge
       on the wall of the stomach. Transfer takes place immediately and our
       chelated minerals are absorbed into blood stream nearly 100% intact.
       These chelates aid in increasing bioavailability of nutrients and oxygen
       into the cells of the body to aid in the proper respiration and burning of
       nutrients, which in turn gives healthier animals, less burnout and young
       with less scour problems, less sickness and death. Other chelates are
       not absorbed into the blood stream until they reach the small intestine
       and then only at rates as high as 80% but as low as 60%! Your livestock
       deserve 100% of what you’re paying for!

Copper and Cobalt are very important for proper liver function and production
of B vitamins. Coupled with our water-soluble B Vitamin stress package, the
animal has a head start on wear and tear and stress found today. Zinc helps
bolster the immune system along with better white blood cell production.
Manganese has much to offer in terms of better reproductive performances
as well as less joint disorders. Iron, in chelated form, helps get more oxygen
into the system, which helps fight viral and bacterial infections. More oxygen
also assists in better respiration of food inside each cell. Science knows that
all nutrients have to reach inside each cell to produce optimum perform-
ance—Bio-Ag’s chelated minerals arrive there ready to do the job.
Natural Vitamin E
Vitamin E is one of the important vitamins, functioning as an antioxidant.
Along with Selenium, it helps boost the immune system of the animal with
Selenium. There are two different forms of Vitamin E (synthetic and natural).
The natural source Vitamin E can be more costly to use, but research studies
show the following:
•     Bio-Availability of synthetic E was only 53% of natural source E.
•     Levels of Vitamin E in the blood and in various organs were higher when
      Natural Vitamin E was fed compared to synthetic.
•     Superior potency of natural source Vitamin E in a livestock study
•     In another study, the researchers found the body prefers natural vitamin
      E to synthetic.

The Bio-Ag Difference

Kelp Meal
Bio-Ag uses a unique species of seaweed, occurring naturally in the cold wa-
ters of the North Atlantic and containing 60 naturally chelated minerals, vita-
mins, amino acids and carbohydrates. The natural process helps to make the
minerals more stable which reduces risk of over-supplying trace minerals;
less risk potential for toxicity. Alginic Acid, the predominate carbohydrate in
Kelp Meal, is believed to bind mycotoxins and pathogenic bacteria, assisting
in eliminating them from the body. Kelp Meal helps increase the utilization of
all the feed ingredients, improving the overall health and performance of live-
stock.

Bio-Lac, our own registered probiotic, is a unique lactobacillis fermentation
product with plant extracts formulated to maintain a high population of desir-
able microorganisms in the digestive system. It acts as a competitive exclu-
sion agent, limiting any path for pathogens to enter the blood stream. Bio-Ag
adds to this prebiotic and probiotic product, plant extracts which enhance the
immune response system. The proper beneficial bacteria help to break down
feedstuffs, through the metabolic process, improving the utilization of protein.
Bio-Lac stimulates the growth and activity of beneficial bacteria already pre-
sent in the animal’s digestive tract. The growth of harmful bacteria, such as E.
coli, is suppressed.

Selenium and Vitamin E are normally added to the diet to help prevent oxida-
tive damage to the cells. There are two sources of Selenium: organic and inor-
ganic. The main sources for inorganic Selenium for feeds is Sodium Selenite,
while the source for the organic form is Selenium Yeast. Bio-Ag uses the or-
ganic form, along with the Selenite, because research shows organic sele-
nium is better utilized by pregnant animals compared to inorganic. This im-
proved Selenium status of the female has many benefits, such as a lower
incidence of selenium deficiency problems, improved immune function and
reproductive performance. Also noted, selenium from the organic source was
transferred across the placenta to the developing fetus compared to no trans-
fer with the inorganic source. Studies indicated Selenium content in milk was
2-3 times higher when Selenium Yeast was used, compared to Sodium Se-
lenite. Being transferred to developing young during both gestation and lacta-
tion, leads to a positive immune response in your young, an added bonus.
                                                                                   Premixes
                                                                         Page 9




Redmond Natural Trace Mineral (NTM) Salt
Bio-Ag uses this salt because just as the name says it contains trace minerals
along with the sodium chloride. This rock salt contains minerals such as Cal-
cium, Potassium, Sulphur, Copper, Iodine, Iron, Phosphorus, Manganese and
Zinc.

Flax Oil
Flax oil is a great source of Omega 3 Fatty Acids. It is also GMO free while
many of our competitors use Mineral oil which is a petroleum derivative and
contains no vitamins or minerals. Flax Oil is a component that animals can
metabolize very well and utilize the energy.

Organic Premixes
Since 1999 Bio-Ag has been producing premixes that were certified organic by
Organic Crop Producers & Processors Inc. (OCPP) and now these premixes are
approved for organic use by Pro-Cert Organic Systems. We are able to produce
a version of most of the conventional premixes listed in this catalogue that
would be approved for organic use. Please contact us for more details.

                   Custom Premixes
To determine the best formula for use with your livestock, Bio-Ag offers ration
balancing, tailored to your feeding requirements for enhanced livestock nutri-
tion and improved herd health. Your homegrown feeds are tested at a local
laboratory to provide accurate analysis information. Bio-Ag incorporates these
feeds into the ration to keep purchased feed costs at a minimum.

Custom Premixes provide the opportunity to combine your selected feed sup-
plements into one product to reduce handling and ensure your livestock are
receiving the nutrition they require based on results of our ration-balancing
program.


Our Dealers & nutritionist work closely with you through all the seasons of
feeding. As your input feeds change, so too may your livestock nutritional
needs.

Our clients appreciate that we are willing to adjust their rations with each
feed change. We then can customize each premix order to reflect the ex-
cesses or lack of particular elements in your feedstuffs.

Our floor-stock premixes supply maintenance levels of Kelp and Bio-Lac. Salt
is not included in our floor-stock.

Many of our clients add additional ingredients to further enhance their feed-
ing programs. Examples of these are:
• Additional Bio-Lac to enhance feed conversion and to maintain butterfat
     test-especially during hot, humid weather
• Sulphur to address internal and external parasites
• Products to address molds or toxins in feed
• Additional Kelp to meet the recommended rate of 4 oz [112 g/hd/day for
     a lactating animal
• Our NTM Salt to ensure adequate Sodium intake-particularly in hot, hu-
     mid weather

Our 5-bag minimum order for Custom mixes allows our clients to
purchase small quantities of balanced nutritional packages for Dry
Cows, Prefresh groups and Heifers.

Product can be purchased in 25 kg bags or bulk in totes. Minimum
quantity for tote orders is 500 kg.

Flax
Flaxseed is the richest known food source of omega-3 fatty acids (which have




                                                                                  Feed
beneficial effects on heart health and the autoimmune system), in addition to
the presence of essential nutrients such as protein essential fatty acids,
vitamins and minerals. It is also a good source of both soluble and insoluble
dietary fiber as well as a rich source of lignans. Lignans are phytoestrogens,
compounds found in plants and thought to protect against certain types of
cancers by interfering with the effects of estrogen.
A standard ingredient in Bio-Ag Mineral Premixes is Flax Oil. In addition to
controlling dust in the premix, Flax is beneficial for improved reproduction,
increased milk production and increased butterfat. The elevated
maintenance and gain energy values for flax relate to excellent gain in beef
cattle. Whereas other oils will add fat to the body, Flax Oil converts food to
more useable nutrients. An excellent source of energy, Flax Oil and pellets
can be easily added to the TMR or top dressed to raise energy levels when
feedstuffs fall short of necessary energy requirements.
A recent study in Manitoba has revealed that when Flax was fed to sows, they
experienced less weight loss and maintained more back fat during lactation
than sows fed regular rations. They also took less time to come into heat after
farrowing. Improved weanling weights were also realized from feeding flax to
the sows.

Bio-Lac Probiotic
What is a Probiotic?
Probiotics have been described as the opposite of antibiotics. While antibiot-
ics destroy life, probiotics build up or promote life. The function of a probiotic
is to improve the growth and development of the normal, desirable microbial
population in the gut, allowing them to maintain domination over the undesir-
able organisms. A probiotic can be a live (viable) culture of a microbial spe-
cies, a dead (non-viable) product of microbial fermentation or an extract of
plant origin.
How it works
Proper nutrition means having beneficial micro flora in the gastro intestinal
tract of the animal. Through the addition of Bio-Lac, with its varied bacteria
and abundance of plant source enzymes, the animal establishes the proper
pH in the stomach and digestive system. Based upon cellular response to
inputs, such as vitamins, minerals, enzymes and oxygen brought to the cell,
Bio-Lac is formulated to provide the bacterial and enzyme boost to make this
cellular response work more efficiently, giving maximum feed conversion.
•    Enhances the animal’s ability to defend against viral and bacterial infec-
     tions
•    Improves overall health and productivity of your herd
•    Strengthens helpful microbial populations and suppresses harmful bac-
     terial growth
•    Counteracts ill effects of antibiotic treatment by sustaining the good bac-
     teria
•    Increased conversion rates and production

Natural Trace Mineral Salt
Natural Trace Mineral (NTM) Salt is almost pure salt (95% Sodium Chloride),
yet it provides livestock with many needed trace minerals such as Calcium,
Potassium, Sulphur, Copper, Iodine, Iron, Phosphorus, Manganese and Zinc.
In ancient times, a great salt-saturated sea existed near present day Red-
mond, Utah. Water from the sea eventually evaporated, leaving a bed of rock
salt where it lay undisturbed for thousands of years.
Mineral rich, Redmond salt chunks offer quality at competitive prices. Rock
salt chunks are more weather resistant than pressed salt blocks. You save
salt for the cows instead of allowing it to wash away with the rain. Since Red-
mond salt naturally possesses a full array of trace minerals, it’s relatively in-
expensive to produce and is reasonably priced. Manufactured salt blocks
must be artificially mineralized. This additional expense is often passed on to
you, the customer. Given a choice, livestock prefer Natural Trace Mineral Salt
to manufactured salts. Choose Natural Trace Mineral Salt to supply your live-
stock with salt and valuable trace minerals.
Natural Trace Mineral Salt can also be used to help preserve forage. Sprinkle
on top of forage at the rate of 2 lb per square meter to help slow down mold
process. Sprinkle on bales appropriate amount for size of bale when storing
(1 lb per square meter).

Anti-Caking Agent (formerly Conditioner)
Redmond Anti-Caking Agent is a trace mineral colloidal silicate, which con-
tains a combination of nearly 50 mineral compounds.

Natural Healthcare
Natural Health Care Products work in conjunction with our feed supplements

Homeopathics
Homeopathy is a natural system of medicine, as well as a well-established heal-
ing system. Known to the ancient Greeks, the modern system of homeopathy
was introduced and developed in the 19th century. Today homeopathy is well
accepted as a safe and effective alternative form of medical treatment. Home-
opathy has a significant role in both curative and preventive medicine. A ho-
meopathic system can be employed to the benefit of the livestock farmer by
utilizing these two approaches—
1. Preventive Medicine Approach, and
2. Therapeutic Approach, or the emergency treatment of individual cases.

It is generally accepted that a program of preventive medicine is the ideal state
of affairs, which is the main aim of the complete Bio-Ag Consultants and Dis-
tributors Inc. nutritional and homeopathic program. Bio-Ag has been concerned
not with the increasing cost of conventional drugs but with their side-effects. As
well as with the build-up of resistant strains of bacteria due to the continued
and often indiscriminate use of antibiotics. The aim of the Bio-Ag program is to
build up the health of the herd and increase the resistance of its individual
members to disease. As a consequence, this will increase productive efficien-
cies, as the healthier the animal is, the more efficiently it will process the feeds
given to it, and the quality of the products provided by the animal will improve.
This involves a program from birth throughout the animal’s useful life.

How Does Homeopathy Work?
Homeopathy is a healing process in which the medicines stimulate and encour-
age the body’s natural healing forces of recovery. It is based on the practice of
treating “like with like”—treating an illness with a substance that produces, in a
healthy body, similar symptoms to those experienced in the sick body. For ex-
ample, in humans Ipecacuana (from the root of the plant) if taken by a healthy
person will cause vomiting but if taken in tiny homeopathic doses will cure vom-
iting.

Soil Amendments / Fertilizers
Our Philosophy
Soil. What is it? Dirt, ground, mud when wet, sand, loam… is it only NPK???
We have been so misled by the experts for years. Soil is a wonderful, unique
substance that varies all over the world—indeed from farm to farm and field
to field. As we know artificial NPK heightens dependency on more NPK and
herbicides. This tightens soil structures and makes trace minerals less avail-
able.


Nutritionists as well as “Dieticians can prescribe all the diets they like. The
results will be unpredictable until such time as the soils that produced the
constituents of the diets are taken into account. Dietetics will progress and




                                                                                   Soil Amendments
‘protective’ medicine will be effective only when it is remembered that the soil
makes both the food and the man” (p. 263, Soil, Grass and Cancer), Andre
Voisin, 1959)


Remember—we are the earth—we ultimately consume what we have done to
the earth in some way, shape or form. Today we have a health crisis on our
hands—Cancer, high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity. In order to keep pace
with our increasing global population we are forcing increased output. More
food, more cheaply, without much thought for its biological values. Animal
and ultimately human nutrition is the most important problem facing mankind
at this time. Intensive agriculture is removing vitamins and minerals from the
soil and many are not replaced by chemical fertilizers.


Obviously the only thing we have learned from history is that we have not
learned much. We need to see availability of nutrients in our soil NOT just
what is there. Just remember, you and I are only dust.
                                            ~ Murray Bast, President Bio-Ag




  Diseases are created mainly by destroying the harmony
                   within the elements of the soil

Soil Amendments / Fertilizers
Our soil amendments add cost-effective nutrients to the soil. They include:
Calphos (Soft Rock Phosphate), Jersey Greensand, Kelp Meal, Soluble Sea-
weed Powder, Liquid Seaweed and others.

Soil Testing is Available. Our soil testing includes organic matter; trace min-
eral content; pH levels; base saturation levels or total content of calcium,
magnesium, phosphorous, nitrogen, potassium; and
cationic capacity (the ability to exchange electron charge between the various
elements in the soil).

We work with Sittler Manufacturing to formulate mixes that work for YOUR soil
and farm conditions.

Kelp Fertilizer Mix
Research done in the 1960’s at Iowa State
demonstrated the use of this fertilizer applied in
the row at time of planting was found to be very
effective in controlling corn rootworm. The Brix
readings in the corn plants will be much higher and
as a result the corn may withstand cooler weather
and even the occasional drop below freezing.
If a corn crop is following another row crop. (i.e. corn,
soybeans, etc) then the application of the Kelp

Livestock Housing
Livestock housing is important because of the holistic nature of agriculture.
We know that the comfort of animals is pertinent to their health. Animals that
are comfortable and content will give you the greatest production. Increased
stress levels cause sickness in animals just as it does in humans.


Important factors are:
•   Proper lighting—especially in the winter when the use of full spectrum
    light has the same effect as sunlight on the pineal gland for heats and
    conception
•   Reduced flies using non-chemical methods such as Diatomaceous Earth
•   Sanitation—bacteria control in pens and behind cows can be addressed
    with Stalosan F
•   Proper water source—test your water once a year for bacteria, alkalinity,
    heavy metals, etc
•   Ventilation cannot be stressed enough—cattle are better off in cold barns
    than in a humid environment with closed doors
•   Electrical pollution can be a problem and can be tested. Call us for de-
    tails.

Services
Bio-Ag representatives are experts in the field, literally. They will give you
straight forward answers regarding your specific agricultural problems.
The variety of services provided include:
• Livestock Nutrition—production/reproduction and disease control
• Electrical pollution affecting your operations
• Feed sampling and ration balancing
• Custom premixes
• Water and soil analysis
• Homeopathic alternatives to animal health care

Electrical consulting
Electrical pollution is invisible, silent, odorless and tasteless — a challenging
pollutant effecting humans and livestock.
Since the early 1970’s, when North America changed from linear to non-
linear loads, the creation of EMF’s [high frequency electro magnetic fields]
has steadily increased. Contributing factors are: increased requirements of
computers, televisions, variable speed motors, high-efficiency bulbs and
dimmer switches. EMF’s can lead to a distortion in the 60-cycle sine wave.
The creation of harmonics and transients [electrical surges], which ride on the
normal 60-cycle wave, create this electrical pollution.
There are solutions. Bio-Ag supports a trained consultant to assess your
agricultural operation. Residential testing meters and filters are available.
Contact our Head Office for details.

Ration balancing
Bio-Ag staff design completely balanced minimum cost rations. Bio-Ag
focuses on maximizing the amount of protein and energy the farmer can
obtain from homegrown feedstuffs, to limit the amount of purchased feed.
Through feed analysis, Bio-Ag is able to advise the farmer how to:
•    Use their own resources efficiently and effectively
•    Properly balance their animal feed rations at the lowest possible cost

Lab testing
Bio-Ag is pleased to offer a variety of supportive tests through outside labs to
provide further details for your farming operation.
Key tests include, but are not limited to:
     ·    Feed analysis [by wet chemistry]
     ·    Water [many options available]
     ·    Soil
     ·    Mold identification and Mycotoxin screens
     ·    Feed fermentation analysis, volatile fatty acids
Bio-Ag Dealers and staff can confirm the sample collection and submission
details.

Information about GMOs

What are GMOs?
Genetically engineered or genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are created
by taking genes from organisms such as bacteria, viruses or animals and
inserting them into other, often unrelated, species. Unlike traditional
breeding, genetic engineering creates new organisms that would never occur
in nature, creating new and unpredictable health and environmental risks.

The term ‘genetically engineered (GE) food’ refers to any product containing
or derived from GMOs. In Canada, up to 70 per cent of the processed foods
found in grocery stores contain GE ingredients. The most common GE
ingredients come from crops like corn, soy, canola and cotton. Biotechnology
companies genetically engineer these crops to produce a pesticide or to
withstand the application of herbicides.

We have books and other information available about GMOs. If you are
interested please contact our head office.



Organics

Bio-Ag has a staff person who works with organics and government
regulations. We can work with your certifier and provide up to date
information about changes to regulations as they evolve.

With the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) overseeing organics in
Canada (as of December 14, 2008), we feel it is important to stay up to date
with all requirements to better serve our customers.

History of the Company
Murray Bast took over his father’s dairy operation in 1974 and the farm has been
chemical free since. Murray’s experiences with cattle and how the soil, nutrition, and
the environment that affects them, encouraged him to start Bio-Ag Consultants &
Distributors Inc. in 1982. Bio-Ag is a company committed to developing and distributing
quality agricultural products that work in cooperation with nature’s biological system.
Head Office staff (located in Wellesley, Ontario) and all of Bio-Ag dealers and
associates provide these products and services to all farm clients in meeting nutritional
requirements on their farm, as well as working on health issues on farm.

Murray Bast and his wife Florence, now operate a 125 acre Beef cow/calf and finishing
operation along with Alpacas. Their farm is operating on an intensive system of pasture
and livestock management. Murray has devoted his time to livestock management,
nutrition and research.

The Bast farm is also home to another business — Greenwood Wellness Clinic Inc.,
which flows naturally from Murray’s interest in nutritional issues for animals. Murray
has studied how the elements of nutrition, the soil and the environment impact human
health. Murray is a Registered Homeopath with the National United Professional
Associates of Trained Homeopaths. The clinic also has a Chiropractor and 2
Naturopathic doctors on staff, including Murray’s son Lindsay. Visit

           Murray’s Message
Thank you for picking up one of Bio-Ag’s first
ever catalogue. This has been over 26 years
in the making but I hope it will help our
customers to see the wide variety of products
we have to help your farm operation become
more efficient as well as greener.

This catalogue is dedicated to Dr. John Wittaker DVM (1931-1990) who
inspired me to begin this company. His guidance and direction helped me to
see that alternatives to drugs, chemicals, vaccines, hormones, chemical
fertilizers, etc. existed when no one else was talking about other options. He
suggested I read Soil, Grass and Cancer and this book changed the way I
approached my personal life as well as livestock and agriculture from that day
forward. Dr. Wittaker’s thinking was light years ahead on things like:
• bacteria and what their role/function in the body was;
• Infections;
• the real potential of mold and fungus on the blood stream as well as the
     immune system;
• soil biology and what we do to the soil and its’ biology when we dump
     chemicals on the ground;
• fertilization, cropping, health, disease, etc.

In the years since his passing his observations still surprise me and are miles
ahead of many researchers today. This knowledge has led Bio-Ag to become a
leader in quality products and first class nutrition.

Everyone from call takers to sales people at Bio-Ag are committed to putting
you first. We look forward to assisting you with your need—large or small.

Thank you and continue ‘Working with Nature ~ Naturally’
Murray Bast
