Added garlic fly repellent, GFR, will help repel flies as cattle graze. Research has demonstrated that added garlic to a mineral supplement can help repel flies by over 50%. Blueprint 6% Phos Mineral GFR not only delivers essential macrominerals, but also Blueprint’s premium trace mineral package consisting of 100% Bioplex organic trace minerals. The Blueprint nutritional program is designed through decades of research and practical application to unlock the genetic potential of your livestock through the benefits of nutrigenomics.
This product contains garlic that can help repel flies on beef cattle, equines and bison on pasture
- GFR = Garlic Fly Repellent
- The consistent intake and palatability of CRYSTALYX makes it an excellent vehicle to deliver garlic to your cattle
- Allicin – the active ingredient in garlic extract – is broken down into several sulfur compounds which passes through the blood to the skin and lungs and releases a garlic odor
- A study in Saskatchewan discovered cow-calf pairs which received garlic had 52-56% less flies on average than 2 control groups during the summer months
CRYSTALYX Blueprint 6% Phos Mineral GFR supplement is designed for self-feeding to grazing beef cattle. Use as a source of calcium, phosphorus, vitamins and trace minerals when forage crude protein is not limiting. This product does not provide enough supplemental magnesium to aid in the prevention of grass tetany.
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 40-75 head. A minimum of two (2) containers may be necessary in each 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 may consume from 2 to 8 ounces per head per day. Cattle should typically consume 4 ounces per head per day. Manage the number of animals per container to achieve a 4 ounce intake per head per day.
