Nebraska Farmer’s Bio-Based System Makes Farming Simpler
Even if you don’t make New Year’s resolutions, you probably have goals for your farming operation this year. Brian Hoffman is that kind of farmer.
When he built a slatted, monoslope beef barn in 2017, he wanted to prevent manure from building up. What started as a search for one answer led him to a step-by-step system that’s benefiting his entire crop and livestock operation.
“I searched the internet to find answers about the manure build-up issue,” said Hoffman, a fifth-generation farmer who raises corn, soybeans and cattle near Brunswick, Nebraska.
He came across ProfitProAG’s website. He started reading about Manure Master™ products, which help manure digestion and liquefaction, reduce top crusting and bottom solids and minimize odors. He watched the video testimonials from farmers who use Manure Master products. Their stories convinced him to give the system a try.
“Manure Master works,” he said. “It breaks the solids down and keeps the manure liquefied, which makes pump-out a lot easier. It also keeps the ammonia smell in check.”
Hoffman also uses Eubio-NBS (c10) as part of ProfitProAG’s Manure Master program. This natural, biological stimulant, which is biodegradable, non-toxic and non-corrosive, optimizes liquid manure to support natural processes essential for healthy soil and plants.
Once a month, he applies Manure Master and Eubio-NBS (c10) through the slats in his cattle barn. This monthly treatment plan works so well that Hoffman has used Eubio and other ProfitProAG products on the crop side of his operation, too.
“It seems better to get things to work naturally, rather than always using chemicals,” Hoffman said.
The “Recipe for Success” is tailored to your acres
Hoffman also likes how ProfitProAG makes it easy to develop a plan that integrates solutions for his crop and livestock operation.
“It’s called the “Recipe for Success,” and it’s no cookie-cutter plan,” said Dr. Jim Ladlie, founder and CEO of ProfitProAG. “Each “Recipe for Success” is tailored to your acres, whether you raise corn, soybeans, small grains, forages or cover crops.”

A holistic system like the “Recipe for Success” appeals to Hoffman, who appreciates how ProfitProAG explains each step of the process. “It makes it easier to have ProfitProAG put all this together in a plan for me. I think biology-based systems like this are the future of agriculture, rather than chemical-based systems.”
Hoffman encourages other farmers to try ProfitProAG’s “Recipe for Success.” It’s okay to start small, like he did when he tried the Manure Master system. “Try a few products, and do your own on-farm trials,” Hoffman said. “You can benefit your crops and livestock and get your farm’s biology back in balance.”
