In 2027, Crystalyx® will celebrate its 50th birthday. While the look and feeding characteristics of this Generation-X supplement have stayed the same, our understanding of how it works has changed greatly over the years.
As we continue our theme of demonstrating how Crystalyx® pencils out for a return on your investment, we will next look at using Crystalyx to help manage grazing distribution in your pastures. The idea is that, in addition to using the supplement to provide daily nutritional supplementation to your cattle, we will use it to manipulate the grazing of your herd into areas they would not typically frequent. We once referred to this as having your supplement “multitask.”
As we continue our series asking the question, "Does Crystalyx Pencil Out?", Mark Robbins discusses the ROI, performance benefits, and labor savings associated with supplementing Crystalyx mineral products in the summer months.

The history of CRYSTALYX low-moisture blocks goes back more than 44 years, to a patent originally obtained by Carl O. McKenzie. Legend has it that he got the idea while observing how hard candy was made at Knott’s Berry Farm. The patent was submitted in 1974 and was approved on June 1, 1976. This patent describes the batch process by which we still make CRYSTALYX today.
As we look across any industry, or even life in general, we see many new inventions that save time or that allow us to do more with our existing time. Smartphones, video conferencing, online shopping and home delivery all allow us to do more with less time.
