Weaned calves start on feed sooner and are healthier.
Scott Wallentine, Logan, UT
Scott Wallentine, a cattle producer from Logan, Utah has been using CRYSTALYX®
for more than eight years. CRYSTALYX®
was first recommended to Wallentine from the local CRYSTALYX®
supplier; Intermountain Farmers Association (IFA).
The Wallentine's operation was facing several problems they were to trying to overcome prior to using CRYSTALYX®
. First, show steers needed to have more growth in their frame. Second, pneumonia and sickness were a problem with weaned calves. Third, Wallentine wanted better weight gain and shinier coats in their yearling cattle.
helped the operation overcome several of these problems. Scott states, "The show steers have more shine and bloom, rather than a dull appearance, and weaned calves start on feed sooner and are healthier." Products used in the Wallentine operation include: HE-20%, Iono-lyx®
, and Brigade®
. He would recommend CRYSTALYX®
to other producers, "Try it and give it a chance to work," says Scott.
