Shane Wells, Mockingbird Hill Farm, Rochester, KY has been using CRYSTALYX® Brand Supplements for over 5 years. Shane started using the blocks because he was looking for a convenient way to supplement his cows and he was impressed with CRYSTALYX® research.
Shane’s goals for his herd are to have heifers calve before they are two years old, wean calves half their mature body weight, and then have a calf each year. “I am not there 100%” says Shane, “but I have made great strides. My window of calving is shorter, I am getting more cows bred at first service and I feel my cows come through the winter in better condition.”
Shane is purchasing CRYSTALYX® from Drakes Farm Service in Morgantown, KY. In the fall and winter he uses CRYSTALYX® BGF-30™ and will be moving onto the CRYSTALYX® Hi-Mag Fescue-Lyx® to help prevent grass tetany in the spring. Shane states “Besides results, consumption is predictable and I know my cows are getting what they need.”
“Yes, I would recommend them. They work for me.”
