Crystalyx Brigade Stress Fighting Formula is designed for free-choice feeding to calves, growing cattle and mature breeding cattle fed moderate to high protein forages. Brigade Stress Fighting Formula is fortified with electrolytes and with levels of vitamins and trace minerals to help overcome nutritional stress associated with shipping, weaning, rapid growth rates, late gestation and early lactation. Free-choice consumption will depend on the size of the animals fed, as well as, quality, source and availability of other feeds.
Pen-Raised Calves: Place containers near water source or feed bunks, preferably elevated from ground level to minimize contamination with dirt and other foreign materials that may discourage consumption. Use one (1) container per-head for individually-fed calves, and one (1) container for every three to 10 head when calves are fed in groups. Calves typically consume between 30 and 120 grams per-head, per-day.
Growing Cattle & Mature Breeding Cattle: Place containers in areas that achieve desired supplement intake. Once acceptable intake levels have been achieved, the containers may be moved to under-utilized pasture areas to improve grazing distribution and forage utilization. Feed at the rate of one (1) container for every 20 to 30 head, with a minimum of two (2) containers in each lot or pasture to ensure proper accessibility. Cattle typically consume between 100 and 340 grams per-head, per-day.
All consumption figures stated here are approximate. Provide free access to clean, fresh water at all times.
