Feeding Instructions

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 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 0.2 and 0.6 pounds per head per day.

ALL CONSUMPTION FIGURES STATED HERE ARE APPROXIMATE. PROVIDE FREE ACCESS TO FRESH, CLEAN WATER AT ALL TIMES. CRYSTALYX® CLOSE-UP™ FORMULA CONTAINS NO SALT. LIMIT SALT INTAKE TO APPROXIMATELY ONE (1) OUNCE PER HEAD PER DAY.
