CRYSTALYX Dry Cow Formula is a self-fed supplement designed for use in addition to a balanced ration for dry cows. Dry Cow Formula is fortified with vitamins, minerals and trace minerals to aid in reducing metabolic disorders and subsequent re-breeding problems.
CRYSTALYXÂ® BLUEPRINTÂ® DRY COWâ„¢ FORMULA supplement is designed to be fed only during the dry period, which is typically 30-60 days in length prior to calving. CRYSTALYX Blueprint Dry Cow Formula should be fed along with a long-stem, low calcium forage. Continue feeding until freshening or until cows are switched to CRYSTALYX Blueprint Close-Up Formula or CRYSTALYX Blueprint Transition Stress Formula.
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. Cattle typically consume between 0.2 and 0.6 pounds per head per day.
ALL CONSUMPTION FIGURES STATED HERE ARE APPROXIMATE. PROVIDE FREE ACCESS TO CLEAN, FRESH WATER AT ALL TIMES. CRYSTALYX BLUEPRINT DRY COW FORMULA CONTAINS NO SALT. LIMIT SALT INTAKE TO APPROXIMATELY ONE (1) OUNCE PER HEAD PER DAY.
