CRYSTALYX® for Better Health & Fly Control

2017 has now brought new Veterinary Feed Directive (VFD) requirements. Producers previously have often fed mixing minerals containing Chlortetracycline (CTC) for a variety of reasons that were labeled to be hand-fed. Reasons were varied and may have included some side benefits such as prevention of foot rot and pinkeye, that were not on the approved list of claims. The new FDA requirements will continue to allow the use of specifically formulated and approved self-fed CTC mineral but only with a VFD and only for prevention of Anaplasmosis. So, if you don’t have an Anaplasmosis problem and still want to prevent other health issues, what’s your best option?

Feeding CRYSTALYX® mineral and/or fly control supplements to promote better mineral status, can have a positive impact on herd health and immunity.  

Most CRYSTALYX® mineral products have BioPlex® organic trace minerals such as zinc and copper which have been shown to support immunity. The fly control compounds of IGR, Rabon® and ClariFly™ are also available via CRYSTALYX®, which is an excellent uniform method of delivery to assure proper intake of these compounds.  

Better fly control can help overcome challenges such as pinkeye, which can be aggravated by face fly infestations.
