Product Features

CRYSTALYX Brigade Stress Fighting Formula is a nutrient dense, self-fed supplement fortified with electrolytes, high levels of vitamins and minerals and chelated/organic trace minerals.  This helps overcome nutritional stress associated with weaning, shipping, grouping and the breeding period.

Feeding Instructions

CRYSTALYX BRIGADE supplement is designed for self-fed feeding to calves, growing cattle, and mature beef breeding cattle fed moderate to high protein forages. Brigade is fortified with electrolytes and high levels of vitamins and trace minerals to help overcome nutritional stress associated with shipping, weaning, rapid growth rates, late gestation and early lactation.  Self-fed consumption will depend on size of animals fed, as well as quality, source and availability of other feeds.

PEN RAISED CALVES:  Place containers near water source or feed bunks, preferably elevated from ground level to minimize contamination with dirt and other foreign materials that may discourage consumption.  Use one container per head for individually-fed calves, and one container for every 3-10 head when calves are fed in groups.  Calves typically consume between 1 and 4 ounces per head per day.

GROWING CATTLE AND MATURE BREEDING CATTLE:  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 20-30 head. A minimum of two (2) containers may be necessary in each lot or pasture to ensure proper accessibility. Cattle typically consume between 0.25 and 0.75 pound per head per day.


NOTE:  CRYSTALYX Brand Supplements deliver a continuous supply of nutrients and are designed as a supplement to the animal's diet. When quantity or quality of other feedstuffs is limited, supplemental nutrients in addition to those provided by CRYSTALYX Brand Supplements may be required. In situations where additional nutrients are needed, contact your feed representative for specific recommendations.

WARNING: This product, which contains added copper, should not be fed to sheep or any species that have a low tolerance to supplemental copper.

CAUTION: Consumption of selenium should not exceed 3 mg per head daily.
