80 Years of Munson Quality Feeds
Repair Waterers Before the Freeze

  By Paul Schleif, Howard Lake Country Store

If you’re going to replace a heat element, a thermostat, a float or a valve in your Ritchie® Livestock Fountain—do it now. Not when the temperature dips below freezing.

Go on—you can remember from last winter what parts were just hanging by a thread and will need to be replaced in the ice and snow, if you don’t take care of the job now.

Luckily, Ritchie Fountains (the gold standard of livestock waterers) are very reliable and easy to repair—even those 20-30 years old.

And, you know a reliable parts supplier: Howard Lake Country Store. Sure, we can order a part and get it here next day. But most likely, we’ve got what you need right now.

Of course, despite their durability, Ritchie Fountains (like everything else in this world) will eventually wear out. So, when you need a replacement, come to the Howard Lake Country Store. Again, we can order a fountain for a very special application. But chances are good that we have the Ritchie Fountain you need in our extensive inventory.

Check it out—and don’t wait until the water flowing out of your supply pipe freezes in mid-air before you perform the maintenance you need. See us today!

Goat Dairy Grows and Prospers

Dammann Dairy near Glencoe milks goats instead of cows and is doing very well, thank you. Growing up in the country and with his grandfather in full-time farming, Marc Dammann dreamed of milking cows; but after helping a neighbor milk goats, Marc had an opportunity to purchase his own 100-head herd in 2009.
