Full-time livestock consultant Mike Wichman, of Atkinson, NE, is the founder and owner of Wick’s Livestock Nutrition.  Mike he has over 35 years of experience as a hands-on livestock nutritionist and mineral formulator. 


He is also a former dairyman himself and therefore knows about the necessity of raising healthy and profitable livestock. He’s not sitting in a remote laboratory or fancy office somewhere, but rather, his “office” is in his pickup truck as he goes from farm to farm, making sure that the needs of the livestock producers are met and that all his products are working as promised. Even though the majority of his formulations have been in place and working well for decades, he continually tweaks, invents and improves recipes. For example, he is in the process of removing any ingredients made in China, he is replacing any GMO-sourced ingredient, as well as adding newly-discovered synergists, activators or ingredients in order to make the products work optimally.


If you have a unique problem or deficiency, he will design a mineral and vitamin program specific for you and your farm or ranch.


He stands behind his products in the “old-fashioned” tradition, meaning he always makes sure that they work for you, whether you are a novice livestock owner, or, a seasoned hand who is newly exploring the amazing benefits of advanced nutritional therapy. His philosophy is that if we dig deep enough, all disease can be traced back to nutritional deficiencies and that this is the place where all true herd health begins.
