CRYSTALYX® PHOS-LYX® mineral 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 of mature animals. A minimum of two (2) containers may be necessary in each pasture to ensure proper accessibility. Free-choice consumption will depend on the number of animals per container, the size of the animals, 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.
