Feeding Applications:
Lactating dairy cows.

Buffer-lyx®

Product Features

CRYSTALYX® BUFFER-LYX® is a unique, nutrient dense, formulation specifically designed for lactating dairy cows that have the potential for experiencing subacute ruminal acidosis (SARA). BUFFER-LYX® is formulated with rumen buffering ingredients to maintain maximum levels of feed intake and promote increased milk production while minimizing disorders often associated with high-producing dairy cows.

Feeding Instructions

CRYSTALYX® BUFFER-LYX® is designed for free-choice feeding to help buffer rumen fermentation of high-producing dairy cows.

Place containers in areas that achieve desired supplement intake. Feed at the rate of one container for every 20-30 head. A minimum of two (2) containers may be necessary in each free-stall pen, lot or pasture to ensure proper accessibility. Self-fed consumption will depend on size of the animals fed, seasonal weather conditions, as well as quality, source and availability of other feeds. Cattle typically consume between 0.25 and 0.75 pound per head per day.

ALL CONSUMPTION FIGURES STATED HERE ARE APPROXIMATE. PROVIDE FREE ACCESS TO FRESH, CLEAN WATER AT ALL TIMES. CRYSTALYX® BUFFER-LYX® CONTAINS NO SALT. PROVIDE SALT IN THE RATION OR OFFER FREE-CHOICE.

NOTE: CRYSTALYX® Brand Supplements deliver a continuous supply of nutrients and are designed as a supplement to the animal’s diet. When quantity or quality of other feedstuffs is limited, supplemental nutrients in addition to those provided by CRYSTALYX® Brand Supplements may be required. In situations where additional nutrients are needed, contact your feed representative for specific recommendations.

CAUTION: USE ONLY AS DIRECTED. Feeding added selenium in excess of 0.3 ppm in the total diet is prohibited.

WARNING: This product, which contains added copper, should not be fed to sheep or any species that have a low tolerance to supplemental copper.

WARNING: For Jersey Dairy cattle, which are known to be sensitive to copper toxicity, consider all sources of dietary copper in the complete diet. Supplemental copper sources and/or ingredient levels may need to be modified in these animal feeding situations.
