CRYSTALYX™ DRY COW™ FORMULA block supplement is designed for self-feeding at the start of the dry period, along with a long-stem, low calcium forage. Continue feeding until freshening, or replace with CRYSTALYX™ Close-Up™ Formula during the final three weeks of the dry period.
Place containers in areas that achieve desired supplement intake. 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. Self-fed consumption will depend on size of animals fed, seasonal weather conditions, as well as quality, source and availability of other feeds. Dairy cattle typically consume between 140 and 450 grams per head per day.
ALL CONSUMPTION FIGURES STATED HERE ARE APPROXIMATE. PROVIDE FREE ACCESS TO CLEAN, FRESH WATER AT ALL TIMES. CRYSTALYX™ DRY COW™ FORMULA CONTAINS NO SALT. LIMIT SALT INTAKE TO NO MORE THAN 3- GRAMS PER HEAD DAILY DURING THE DRY PERIOD.
