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. Free-choice consumption will depend on size of the animals fed, seasonal weather conditions, as well as quality, source and availability of other feeds. Goats typically consume between 1 and 5 ounces per head per day.

NOTE: CRYSTALYX® Brand Supplements deliver a continuous supply of nutrients and are designed as a supplement to the animal’s diet. When quantity or quality of other feedstuffs is limited, supplemental nutrients in addition to those provided by CRYSTALYX® Brand Supplements may be required. In situations where additional nutrients are needed, contact your feed representative for specific recommendations.
ABOUT THE PRODUCT
What Are Low-Moisture Blocks
CRYSTALYX® Brand supplements are part of a category of self-fed supplement blocks called “low-moisture blocks”. Lowmoisture blocks rely on the hardness of the block to control intake. Low-moisture blocks are consumed by the licking action of the animals, and cannot be bitten or chewed. Rehydration of the surface of the low-moisture block is necessary for consumption by the animal.
CRYSTALYX® Brand supplements are manufactured with the original low-moisture block process which utilizes a patented batch molasses cooking system that uses vacuum after cooking to ensure moisture removal. This allows for the greatest degree of consistency in low-moisture block manufacturing and product performance.
Product labor, equipment and time savings
The self-fed feature of CRYSTALYX ® Brand supplements greatly reduces the expense of feeding a supplement (labor, equipment & time). Hand fed supplements that must be delivered to animals on a daily basis increases delivery costs associated with supplementation. It is not unusual in large operations for the cost of feeding a hand-fed supplement to equal or exceed the cost of the supplement itself.
CRYSTALYX® Brand supplements will generally last from 10 days up to three weeks depending on the formula fed, size of the animals and seasonal weather and or forage conditions.
CRYSTALYX® Brand Supplements are virtually wasteproof, waterproof and windproof. Hand fed supplements all have losses each time they are handled and especially when fed. Wind, rain, humidity and time all deteriorate a hand-fed supplement. When properly stored, CRYSTALYX ® Brand Supplements do not require an expiration date.
