Southwestern Livestock Mineral Co., Inc. (SWLM), has been blending custom free-choice range minerals and custom premixes for over 40 years. We blend for dairy cattle, beef cattle, sheep, goats (Boer, Milk, and Angora), horses and deer.

Southwestern Livestock Mineral Co. was founded over 40 years ago by producers who needed a dependable source of mineral supplements to transform their livestock from average, to outstanding. With people like Leon Bode, Johnny Bonner, and Gene Newman as the foundation, SWLM became a source of great help to livestock producers.

Years of  experience with proven rations and consistent value have brought this business from a sideline to a major consideration in the livestock production cycle.

When the Turner family bought the company in 1980, they brought years of veterinary experience and a deep ranching heritage to the equation. Today, with Dr. Tim Turner’s vast knowledge of animal health and practical ranching ethic, SWLM continues to provide progressive, efficient and dependable help to producers who are no longer satisfied with average yields.

Dr. Turner is also the operator of T Star Ranch, a 16,000 acre family-owned ranch just northeast of San Angelo, Texas.  He runs cattle, sheep, goats and horses on the ranch and uses his own free-choice ranch minerals for his livestock.

Texas DeerDr. Turner also provides range management for the deer that populate his ranges so that he optimizes the quality of deer for the annual Texas deer hunting season.  SWLM’s “Deer Mineral” provides the necessary mineral supplements to enhance antler growth, general health and fawn production.
