Crystalyx supplies a high energy form of supplementation to the main forage diets of cows, beef, sheep, goats, and deer in a very palatable form.
Although the annual rate of hypomagnesaemia/staggers/tetany (low blood magnesium) in UK cows is less then 1%, one third of affected cows will die. These clinical cases are the tip of the iceberg; the rest of the group may also be sub-clinically affected. Hypomagnesaemia remains one of the very few veterinary emergencies on farms. Crystalyx Cattle High-Mag is a palatable, cost effective self-help feed lick that can help to maintain normal blood magnesium levels this spring.
Calves, like children, are particularly prone to respiratory problems as their immune system is not fully developed. The severity of the problems can vary from a mild nasal discharge and coughing in a group of calves, to severe pneumonia.
