  • I like this Martin 2 so far. The cattle don't keep their hair coat like they used to. Calves are big—we have had a good season. I'm thinking about planting more Martin 2 Protek this fall.

  • The ground was recently cleared and fairly rough. The Martin 2 Protect has done well. Given the chance, I would plant it again.
