Feeding Instructions

CRYSTALYX® BATTALION® supplement is designed for self-feeding to calves, growing cattle and mature beef cattle fed moderate to high protein forages. Battalion® is fortified with electrolytes and high levels of vitamins and trace minerals to help overcome nutritional stress associated with shipping, weaning and breeding. Self-fed consumption will depend on size of animal 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 container per head for individually-fed calves, and one container for every 3-10 head when calves are fed in groups. Calves typically consume between 1 and 4 ounces per head per day.

GROWING CATTLE AND MATURE CATTLE: Place containers in areas that achieve desired supplement intake. Once acceptable intake levels have been achieved, the containers may be moved to underutilized pasture areas to improve grazing distribution and forage utilization. Feed at the rate of one container for every 20-30 head, with a minimum of two (2) containers in each lot or pasture to ensure proper accessibility. Growing and mature cattle typically consume between 0.25 and 0.75 pounds per head per day. This product contains Actigen®, Sel-Plex®, and BioPlex® Hi-Four.


NOTE: CRYSTALYX® Brand Supplements deliver a continuous supple of nutrients and are designed as a supplement to the animal’s diet. When quantity or quality of other feedstuffs is limited, supplemental nutrients in addition to those provided by CRYSTAYLX® Brand Supplements mat be required. In situations where additional nutrients are needed, contact your feed representative for specific recommendations.

WARNING: This product, which contains added copper, should not be fed to sheep or any species that have a low tolerance to supplemental copper.
