Feeding Application:
Beef cattle grazing fescue pastures, low magnesium forages, or pastures with high potassium concentrations that interfere with magnesium absorption.

Hi-Mag Fescue-lyx® GFR

Product Features

CRYSTALYX Hi-Mag Fescue-lyx GFR is formulated to be self-fed to cattle consuming fescue forages with low magnesium levels.  It is energy dense and highly fortified with trace minerals and vitamins.

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

Feeding Instructions

CRYSTALYX HI-MAG FESCUE-LYX GFR supplement is designed for self-feeding to grazing beef 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. Place containers in dry spots near loafing areas and watering locations. 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 the animals fed, seasonal weather conditions, as well as quality, source and availability of other feeds. Cattle typically consume between 0.25 and 0.75 pound per head per day. One-half pound of HI-MAG FESCUE-LYX GFR will supply 10 grams of supplemental magnesium.
