What Our Customers
Are Saying...
“We've used a lot of Lindner 684 in our program depending on the hog, being able to keep one with enough flesh and condition to run the jackpot shows and into the end point it has been a great product for us!”
Baxter Howell
“Really like the 680 series for ease of use. Advantages include adding depth and dimension to gilts that are a little harder bodied. ”
Karl Peter
“Consumption rate is tremendous, growth rate has been good for us, and it gets them off to a really good start, and enables us to get pigs ready to sell at 6-8 weeks in order to perform for our customers.”
Ben Moyer
“Really have liked the consumption and driven appetite. Haven’t seen a feed where they consume and want to eat as much as we have seen with 688. ”
Shane Brinning
“There are a bunch of choices out there for feeds but you have to feed something that works, Lindner United is the feed that gets it done from weaning to taking pictures at the backdrop!”
Travis Platt
“Lifesaver, to us, is a show day, electrolyte supplement that really puts body and fill in one to give them that extra edge and show day look. We also use it in daily feeding to help increase appetite. ”
Alan Hoffman
“TNT enhances rib shape, flank, and body. Palatability in this top dress really makes hogs go to it.”
Matt Miller
“I constantly get asked what we do at Team Sloan to get our hogs ready to sell. I always tell people it is very simple, fresh wood shavings and 612. No question, this is the best starter I have used to get babies bloomy without giving them a hard look. ”
Troy Sloan
“684 is the absolute best finishing feed I have found for hogs that need to be softened up while maintaining adequate muscle shape and continuing to grow. Consumption on this particular feed is second to none, especially when fed wet, and in today's show ring that's an absolute must! ”
Troy Sloan

From the Peaks to the Prairies

Over the past two weeks, I have had the awesome opportunity to travel halfway across the country to not only see high quality show hogs, but more importantly, meet some high quality people.

Two weeks ago I headed to Indianapolis to hop on an airplane to Denver. Once I landed, I met up with account manager Kade Hummel. We would then spend the next three days traveling up and down, back and forth, all around the entire east side of Colorado viewing Lindner United customer’s swine operations and projects.

It truly was an eye opening experience. Being from the Midwest, the most of Colorado that I’ve seen is around the Denver area in the wintertime for NWSS. For this excursion around the Peaks with Kade, we went clear to the Southeast corner of Colorado, and it was about 100 degrees rather than the 40 degrees I had experienced in the wintertime.

Our first stop was at Hamilton Showpigs in  Model, Colorado. We viewed their entire set that they had been campaigning competitively on the jackpot circuit in Colorado, then to smaller hogs on chips, and we even had the opportunity to view their sow herd that has been so influential and successful for them. We then sat down with the family and spoke about how our products have been working for them and how we at Lindner United can do to better serve customer’s needs and wants in their area.

From there, Kade and I headed back towards Denver, and that was an adventure in its own right. Does anybody know how many hotels there are from 30 miles south of Denver to even past Fort Collins? Neither do we, but could you imagine that they were all booked? After a let down in Fort Collins and with the nifty work of Kade’s James Bond car, we finally found a hotel room at 3am in a Motel 9. Never heard of it? Yeah, we hadn’t either, but it was a bed and a shower and a good enough place to call it a day.

Day number two started off great as we met up with Lindner United dealer Brittany Bangert at her and her family’s operation, Peaks to Prairie Showpigs. Throughout the course of the day, we viewed 67  project hogs that were on our feed products and met with some very hard working families that are willing to listen and do what is needed to make their hogs successful. That in its own right is what makes this job so fun and enjoyable.

Our final day in Colorado we made two more stops at customer’s homes before heading to the airport for my departure back to Indiana, and Kade’s long drive back to his home in Kansas.

On Monday I loaded back up and headed to Springfield, Illinois for the Team Purebred Summer Type Conference where I would spend the next week in the Prairieland. Throughout this last week, I spoke with several customers that were ecstatic about how the Lindner United products are working for them and their projects.  As the heat and humidity  up throughout the week, so did the  quality of the hogs and the competitiveness in the show ring. A big congratulations goes out to all of our customers that found success, and thank you for utilizing and believing in our products!

Next week be sure to find us at Louisville for the National Junior Summer Spectacular and stop in at the booth for any feed questions you may have and even some goodies! Good luck to all exhibitors, and safe travels to those making their way to Louisville in this upcoming week.

Thanks again for taking the time to read up about this portion of my summer internship, and I eagerly look forward to the upcoming week in Louisville.
