CRYSTALYX MINERAL-LYX GFR supplement is designed for self-feeding to graz­ing beef cattle and bison.

Mineral-lyx® GFR

Product Features

  • GFR = Garlic Fly Repellent
  • This product contains garlic that can help repel flies on beef cattle and bison on pasture
  • 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

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. 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 and bison typically consume between 0.3 and 0.75 pounds per head per day.
