Free-choice consumption will depend on the size and levels of stress of the animals fed, seasonal weather and pen conditions, as well as, quality source and availability of other feeds.

Features & Benefits
Stimulates appetite. Beef-lyx helps stimulate appetites, increasing intake of essential nutrients for cattle under the stress of entering the feedlot.
High energy. Contains no non-nutritive binders or fillers; safe for cattle unaccustomed to high energy diets; cannot be bitten or chewed; incoming feedlot cattle can consume without digestive upset; stimulates intake of receiving rations resulting in increased energy; healthy animals consume more feed than sick animals.
Highly palatable. Beef-lyx is highly palatable with yeast culture and a high level of molasses solids. Palatable feeds are more likely to be consumed by sick animals or those unaccustomed to consuming from feed bunks.
Yeast culture and B vitamins. The yeast culture and B vitamins in Beef-lyx help stimulate appetite to maintain intake when cattle hesitate to consume receiving rations. Stressed calves often times have reduced rumen function from not eating or abrupt changes in the diet they are being fed. The yeast culture and B vitamins in Beef-lyx help the rumen microbes adjust to these changes and keep calves eating.
Protein. Plant proteins and highly palatable molasses solids provide the protein found in Beef-lyx. Beef-lyx delivers supplemental rumen-available protein to support rumen microbial populations. Beef-lyx is 12% crude protein and will not dilute in the protein content of the complete ration.
Mineral & vitamin fortification. Beef-lyx is specially formulated to help meet mineral and vitamin needs of incoming feedlot cattle to fight disease associated with the stresses of a new environment.
