My name is Ryan Evans from Midland, Texas, I was privileged enough to win Back to Back reserve breed champion Polled Hereford at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo in 2017 and 2018. From the time I put my polled Herefords on feed they are started on Sure Champ Pellets, Vita Charge Stress Tubs, Vita Charge Gel and during the hot Texas summer I use Vita Charge Climate Control. I truly appreciate the BioZyme products for helping me achieve my goals.”
