Ridley Block Operations, Mankato, Minn., now offers the IONO-LYX B300 supplement, with the advantages of its popular CRYSTALYX supplements and the added benefits of Bovatec.
IONO-LYX B300 delivers energy, protein, vitamin and mineral nutrients with an ionophore to grazing cattle. It was recently approved by the Food and Drug Administrtaion for use in food animals.
IONO-LYX B300 improves the rate of weight gain in pasture cattle, as well as slaughter, stocker, and feeder cattle and dairy and beef replacement heifers. Its consistent, uniform intake delivers precise levels of nutrients and ionophores. And, it has lower labor and delivery costs when compared to hand-fed supplements.
Bovatec has been shown to boost weight gain in pasture cattle, in a series of 84 pasture studies conducted between 1980 to 2000. It improved daily gain by about 0.14 pounds per head, daily, on all forage types in all seasons.
IONO-LYX B300 is designed to be fed on a free-choice basis, with a formulation that ensures cattle will consume the supplement and spend longer periods of time at its feeding station for a more consistent intake. This answers the challenge of a limited delivery method in the pasture.
