Application

Beef Farming:
Crystalyx Forage Plus has undergone rigorous trials and research over the last 20 years, with results continually proving that Forage Plus stimulates forage intake and digestion in cattle. Research at Kansas State University has confirmed that Crystalyx Forage Plus increases forage intake by as much as 13%, and increase digestion by a further 10%.
The increase in forage intake and digestion has a direct effect on cattle daily live weight gain (DLWG), with a 25% increase being noted in trials at Newcastle University. In the vast majority of trials done, Crystalyx Forage Plus has more than doubled the investment by extra growth performance. i.e for every $1 spent on the product, a $2 return was gained.
Dairy Farming:
The ability to get the cow in calf and producing milk is of vital importance in any dairy enterprise, Crystalyx Forage Plus contains high levels of selenium and copper which have an important role in improving fertility of dairy cows and breeding bulls. Research in Bandenburg, Germany showed a 15% increase in pregnancy rates when Crystalyx Forage Plus was trialled on dairy replacement heifers, and in separate trails Crystalyx Forage Plus was proven to show to improve bull fertility by 24%.

Crystalyx Dry Cow

Crystalyx Dry Cow works by balancing pasture deficiencies and replenishing the animal’s trace element and vitamin reserves prior to calving to:

  • Reduce the risk of milk fever by optimising blood magnesium levels
  • Increase rumen performance and appetite post calving
  • Increase digestion efficiency
  • Improve the transition into lactation
  • Improve immunity

Application

Application

Dry Cow Feeding:
Many dry cows receive no special attention during this most important period and are often expected to graze pasture in a cleaning up role. For a very small investment in Crystalyx Dry Cow (28c-40c per cow per day) the forage diet can be supplemented to ensure there are no nutritional deficiencies and help the dry cow to recover to optimum condition prior to calving.
Research carried out at Liggins Institute in New Zealand showed that giving access of Crystalyx Dry Cow to dairy cows pre calving and early lactation significantly reduced the incidences of milk fever, mastits and the need for assisted calving. Crystalyx Dry Cow has also been shown to substantially increase the levels of selenium and zinc found in the cows bloodstream.

Crystalyx Extra High Energy

Crystalyx Extra High Energy

Crystalyx Extra High Energy is a dehydrated molasses block containing a range of nutrients designed to easily supplement the forage intake of sheep:

  • Optimises performance by stimulating forage intakes and digestibility while providing all essential mineral, trace elements, and vitamins.
  • Reduces the risk of twin lamb disease.
  • Enhances ewe milk production.
  • Maintains body condition during pregnancy to maximise lamb vitality and health.
  • Optimises lamb birth weight to produce healthy vigorous lambs.
  • Improves lamb daily live weight gain.

Livestock:

  • Sheep

Application

Flushing and Tupping:
Crystalyx Extra High Energy has been proven by Newcastle University and Kansas State University to increase forage intake by 13% and forage digestion by 10%, the increased intake and digestion is key in ensuring that ewes reach the correct body condition score quickly before mating with the ram. Over fat or thin ewes take longer to come on heat when rams are turned in, and the oestrus period is erratic with fewer eggs shed and are thus more likely to be barren.
Mid Pregnancy Feeding:
Should aim to keep ewes in top condition, loss of condition while pregnant will jeopardise placental development and reduce body reserves available for milk production. Trials conducted at Newcastle University found that ewes with access to Crystalyx Extra High Energy maintained better condition than ewes on grass alone, and their lambs subsequently had a 5% higher growth rate.
Weaning and Finishing Lambs:
Weaning can often be a stressful time for lamb’s and many can lose condition due to no longer receiving the nutrients once contained within their mothers milk. Providing lambs with Crystalyx Extra High Energy after weaning provides all the supplementary nutrients necessary to balance grass and make up for the loss of the ewes milk. The high levels of sugar present in Crystalyx stimulates the rumen allowing the lamb to consume and digest more forage resulting in improved growth rates.

Crystalyx Easy Breather

Crystalyx Easy Breather is designed for use with young calves pre-weaning, to aid:

  • Optimises performance by stimulating forage intakes and digestibility while providing all essential mineral, trace elements and vitamins.
  • Helps calves regain appetite after a stress or challenge.
  • A powerful natural aid to help calves resist respiratory challenges.
  • Reduces the risk of growth checks.
  • Intake per lamb 10g-20g per calf 30g-40g
  • Intake per sheep 30g-40g head/day older calves 80g-100g head/day
  • Available in 22.5Kg tubs and 5Kg mini tubs .

Livestock

  • Beef Calves
  • Dairy Calves
  • Sheep

Application

Application

Crystalyx Easy Breather is a feed lick specially designed with the intention to help alleviate stress and respiratory problems in calves and sheep. Respiratory problems in calves and sheep are most prevalent in autumn and winter, especially when the animals are housed. Containing menthol and eucalyptus Crystalyx Easy Breather offers a natural aid to maintain a healthy respiratory system.
Calves, like children, are particularly prone to respiratory problems, as they have not developed any natural immunity to many infectious organisms. The severity of the problems can vary from a mild nasal discharge and coughing in a group of calves, to severe pneumonia with some deaths. Crystalyx Easy Breather aims to help alleviate and prevent respiratory problems.
