Crystalyx supplies a high energy form of supplementation to the main forage diets of cows, beef, sheep, goats and deer in a very palatable form. Continuous nutrient delivery increases dry matter intake and diet digestibility.
Crystalyx is an early managed and palatable form of energy that feeds the rumen flora which, in turn, releases the nutritional value of forage with improved efficiency, therefore improving animal performance and assisting farmers in making better use of their own forages.
Cattle High Mag: Spring and Autumn
Cattle need magnesium to reduce the risk of hypomagnesaemia (grass staggers or grass tetany) but magnesium salts are bitter and not readily taken by cattle.
Cattle High-Mag provides a highly palatable form of magnesium readily consumed by grazing cattle in spring, ensuring the risk of hypomagnesaemia can be significantly reduced.
Cattle Booster: Winter and Summer - Modest Yielding
Crystalyx should be fed to dairy cows and lactating suckler cows and youngstock in summer or winter as it provides an energy source valued at ME=12.0MJ/kgDM which is higher than the best quality grass. It is a feed which, combined with grazing grass or winter forages, is capable of producing milk up to reasonable levels of output. Beyond these concentrate feeding is essential. Lactating suckler could survive on forage plus Cattle Booster alone.
Growing cattle with access to Crystalyx grow up to 25% faster than a similar group on grazing alone.
Suckler cows should be offered Standard Crystalyx to reduce the risk of grass staggers (hypomagnesaemia) and is ideal where there is a mixed grazing situation—particularly on hill farms where cattle and sheep are often together. Copper is not included in Standard Crystalyx to facilitate the feeding situation.
After lambing, lactating ewes at grass should be offered Standard Crystalyx to reduce the risk of grass staggers.
Dry Cows (Beef or Dairy)
Helps maintain optimum blood magnesium levels to reduce the risk of milk fever and ‘slow calvings’.
Helps replenish trace elements and vitamin reserves pre-calving.
Helps support and maintain a strong, healthy immune system.
Helps condition cows during the dry period to maintain optimum health.
Optimises calf health and vigour (more ‘get up and go’).
Maximises dry matter appetite and forage intakes post-calving to help maintain energy balance for optimum health, fertility and lactation performance.
Garlyx: A Complementary Feeding Stuff for Growing Cattle
Garlyx maximises animal performance at grass by providing all the usual benefits of Crystalyx together with natural protective high sulphur compounds present in garlic:
- Produces an invisible screen over the animal’s body to help repel biting insects
- Reduces restlessness and irritation in grazing stock
- Reduces the risk of infection from insect bites
- Balances nutrient deficiencies in summer grass
- Optimises forage digestibility and intake
A natural aid to maintaining a healthy respiratory system and a strong immune system.
Respiratory problems in cattle are, unfortunately, all too common, and are most frequent in autumn and winter, especially in housed calves, but can arise at any time, especially in animals under stress.
Calflyx Easy Breather helps maintain a healthy respiratory system by minimising respiratory irritation and providing a soothing and calming effect on the calf to minimise stress and help support and maintain a strong immune system.
Extra High Energy
Feeding for 6 months instead of 6 weeks prior to lambing has now become an essential practice with many sheep farmers. Feeding Crystalyx during early and late pregnancy achieves a 15% better utilisation of forages. This gradually builds the ewe’s reserves in an economic way. As well as being lower in cost the system is easier on the ewes, and the staff looking after them, as there is a reduction of stress. The system is beneficial equally to the shy feeders, older ewes or any ewes which have broken mouths.
Pregnant ewes with access to Crystalyx retain better condition in mid pregnancy, as forage quality declined, than control ewes on grass alone.
100% organic Organyx Plus is fully approved, suitable for year round feeding to all cattle and sheep.
Ideal for flushing ewes and tups, growing/finishing lambs at grass, breeding bulls and also growing/finishing cattle at grass.
100% organic Organyx Garlic is one method of reducing irritation from flies and other biting insects in grazing stock. When consumed by stock, the higher sulphur compounds present in garlic produce an invisible barrier or screen over the skin which flies and other nuisance biting insects find repellent.
Beetlic is a combination of beet molasses, cane molasses, soya, rapeseed meal, wheatfeed, protected vegetable oil, vitamins and minerals forming a weather resistant, highly nutritious and labour saving feed supplement.
