Feeding Instructions

CAUTION: USE AS DIRECTED. Consumption of selenium should not exceed 3 mg per head per day.

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

Introductory Period: Following a 7 to 10 day acclimation period, average consumption should be 0.5 to 1 pound per head per day for mature cattle with unrestricted forage supplies. Some repositioning of blocks may be necessary as animals become acclimated to the presence of the blocks. Move blocks closer to increase consumption; further away to decrease consumption. If overconsumption occurs for more than two weeks and repositioning of blocks does not correct the situation, remove blocks and evaluate the overall feeding program. DO NOT ALLOW STARVED ANIMALS FREE ACCESS TO THIS BLOCK.

Feeding Recommendations:

  1. Provide 1 block per 15 to 30 head. All animals should have equal access to blocks. Timid and smaller animals need their share.
  2. Place blocks where animals congregate. Locate blocks throughout the pasture at loafing, grazing, feeding and watering areas. Adequate distance must be maintained between blocks to minimize crowding – 10 feet minimum.
  3. Feed blocks continuously along with a plentiful source of forage and clean, fresh water. Cattle should not run out of blocks. When a block is two-thirds consumed, provide a new block near it.
  4. Cattle should consume an average of 0.5 to 1 pound per head daily based on a 1,000-pound animal.
  5. Consumption of this block may vary depending upon animal body condition, quality and quantity of forages, seasonal weather conditions, and most importantly, feeding locations of blocks with respect to loafing, grazing, feeding and watering areas.
  6. If additional mineral and vitamin fortification is desired, provide an appropriate ULTRALYX self-fed mineral supplement in addition to this supplement.
