The Crystalyx range of products is based on blocks of dehydrated molasses, each containing a specific range and concentration of nutrients, designed to balance pasture nutrient deficiencies that occur in New Zealand.
As the molasses in Crystalyx is dehydrated, it is hard and weatherproof. Furthermore, each time an animal licks the block they only get a small dose of nutrients. The blocks are highly palatable to stock, so animals tend to lick them frequently, which means that they get a controlled and continuous intake of the nutrients they need.
Unlike some lick blocks, Crystalyx does not rely on high levels of salt to encourage animals to partake. This means that consumption is steady; in contrast, with high-salt blocks consumption often stops once the animal’s sodium need has been met.
The nutrients in Crystalyx are designed to improve the digestibility of forage by improving the efficiency of rumen fermentation. The sugars in Crystalyx provide an ideal source of energy for the microflora in the rumen, and when these micro-organisms are working well, they can effectively release extra energy from the animal’s diet, and this is converted into meat and milk.
Using Crystalyx products means you can reduce your reliance on other supplementation methods.
