CRYSTALYX® Transition Stress Formula™ is a nutrient dense, self-fed supplement fortified with high levels of vitamins, minerals and yeast culture specifically formulated for high stress periods experienced by dairy cows and calves.
Uniform intake of these key nutrients and ingredients are essential for high-producing dairy cows to make a healthy and productive transition as a dry cow through freshening.
CRYSTALYX® Transition Stress™ Formula is designed to be self-fed to lactating and non-lactating dairy cattle, calves and growing cattle during periods of transition and increased stress. For dairy cows, provide CRYSTALYX® Transition Stress™ Formula as a self-fed supplement during critical periods of stress, such as the transition period 3 weeks prior to and 3 weeks after calving. CRYSTALYX® Transition Stress™ Formula should only be offered during anticipated periods of stress and is not intended for use over extended feeding periods, or as a substitute for improper animal care, or facility management.
Place containers in areas that achieve desired supplement intake. Once acceptable intake levels have been achieved, the containers may be moved to underutilized pasture areas to improve grazing distribution and forage utilization. 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 0.1 and 0.5 pounds per head per day.
Sick Pens & Pen-Raised Calves: Place containers near water source or feed bunks, preferably elevated from ground level to minimize contamination with dirt and other foreign materials that may discourage consumption. Use one container per head for individually-fed animals, and one (1) container for every 3-10 head when calves are fed in groups. Calves typically consume between 0.1 and 0.5 pounds per head per day.
ALL CONSUMPTION FIGURES STATED HERE ARE APPROXIMATE. PROVIDE FREE ACCESS TO FRESH, CLEAN WATER AT ALL TIMES. CRYSTALYX® TRANSITION STRESS™ FORMULA CONTAINS NO SALT. PROVIDE SALT IN THE RATION OR OFFER FREE-CHOICE.
