 Fellow Deer Farmer,

My name is Russ Bellar and I have been breeding whitetail deer for 16 years. During that time I have learned to grow some of the largest racked deer in the world including “X-Factor” that broke the world record.

 I’m writing you to share the results I’ve been getting by using a mineral supplement called Stress Relief Mineral-Max. We all understand the importance of minerals but this particular product is the first real advancement in years and has proven to be my “x-factor” supplement in growing exceptionally healthy and big-racked deer. This is the reason I’m confident in endorsing it and helping spread the word in our industry.

A group of scientists with a company called OceanGrown Inc., located in Florida, have developed the first complete mineral supplement that supplies all 90 minerals needed to maximize cervid health. While other products are full of fillers and synthetic ingredients, Stress Relief Mineral-Max is 100% mineral so you get what you pay for.

My results with using this product:

  • Increased calmness; deer will now approach humans in their pens without fear or anxiety.
  • Reduction of weight-loss during antler growth: “X-Factor” lost 10 lbs. this year versus last year’s 100 lbs.
  • Increased antler growth
  • Improved semen quality
  • Increased fertility and multiple births
  • Reduced mortality

         I encourage you to reach out and contact the company founder John Hartman at (504) 430-9026 ( He would be pleased to further explain Stress Relief Mineral-Max and help get you started. You can also contact me directly at (765) 776-1596 for more information.

I wish you all the best,

Russ Bellar


Getting Started with Sprouting!

By Rachel Daglia


Sprouting has quickly become popular due to their superfood abilities and hassle free growing. The benefits are almost endless with the abundance of varieties available. It is also easy, cheap and only takes a short period of time before you’re munching on your home grown sprouts! OceanSolution is the perfect additive to sprouting.  By soaking them in our OceanSolution 203 product you can add 90 minerals into the sprouts. Before we get into the actual sprouting part, let’s talk about what it actually is and all the benefits that come along with eating them.

Sprouting is the germinating of a seed. Seeds are filled with nutrients, some good and some bad. When soaked in water for the right amount of time, the seed begins to open up and the anti-nutrients diminish, giving you the start of a tiny plant. Instead of all the nutrients going to the roots, they are packed into the tiny sprouts. The nutritional values then increase. They are also easier to digest and your body is able to absorb all the needed nutrients more effectively. Depending on which seeds you have chosen to sprout, the flavor and nutritional benefits will vary.

The most common seeds to sprout are grains, nuts, wheat and beans. They all have less starch meaning higher levels of protein, vitamins, antioxidants and dietary fibers. Eating sprouts can help strengthen your immune system, keeps your body rich in oxygen and alkaline, so viruses and cancers cannot live, and gives your body all the essential vitamins you lack on a daily bases.

Growing sprouts is probably the easiest way to get all your needed nutrition and fast! Using OceanSolution while sprouting maximizes the minerals in each sprout, giving you even MORE nutrition your body craves! Your sprouts will be bigger, more flavorful and grow faster!

There are only a few steps to sprouting.

First you have to read up on your seeds to see how long you should soak them and how long they need to germinate before they go bad. We like getting seeds from or and both places give you very detailed descriptions on how long to soak and so forth. Once you have your seeds you’re going to need:

  • Mason Jars
  • Measuring cup
  • Cheese Cloth
  • Rubber Bands
  • Filtered water
  • OceanSolution 203


Once you have all your essential tools you are ready to start sprouting!

Here is a step by step guide on sprouting with OceanSolution!

  1. You should “wash” and drain your seeds and go through them for sticks, dirt and grass.
  2. Fill measuring cup with filtered water and an ounce to a quart of OceanSolution 203.
  3. Fill jars with ½ cup seeds. (we usually do about 4 standard mason jars at a time)
  4. Pour water into jar covering seeds with about an inch of water above them.
  5. Put cheesecloth on top of jar and rubber band tightly.
  6. Let them soak for correct amount of time (usually overnight) in a dark place.
  7. Drain and rinse sprouts.
  8. Move to a countertop, turn upside down for drainage and keep at a room temperature no higher than 75 degrees.
  9. Rinse and Drain sprouts TWICE a day ( morning and evening) with filtered water for the next 4-7 days
