Dry Cow Formula

Product Features

CRYSTALYX® Dry Cow™ Formula is a self-fed supplement designed for use in addition to a balanced ration for dry cows. Dry Cow™ Formula is fortified with vitamins, minerals and trace minerals to aid in reducing metabolic disorders and subsequent rebreeding problems.

Feeding Instructions

CRYSTALYX® DRY COWFORMULA is designed to be fed only during the dry period, which is typically 30-60 days in length prior to calving.  CRYSTALYX® DryCow Formula should be fed along with a long-stem, low calcium forage.  Continue feeding until freshening or until cows are switched to CRYSTALYX® Close-Up Formula or CRYSTALYX® Transition Stress Formula.

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 animals fed, seasonal weather conditions, as well as quality, source and availability of other feeds. Cattle typically consume between 0.2 and 0.6 pound per head per day.

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

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.

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.

CAUTION: USE ONLY AS DIRECTED. FOR RUMINANTS ONLY.
