Easyblox™ 25% Protein + Mag Compressed Block is designed to supplement cattle on low quality forages and also provides cattle with additional magnesium when grass tetany conditions exist.
Manufacturing and ingredients make the difference. Dry ingredients; comprised mainly of Distillers Dried Grains with Solubles (DDGS), are blended with the right amount of liquid ingredients and then “compressed” into plastic containers. The resulting blocks can be fed free-choice to supplement forage-based diets. Easyblox manufacturing technologies produce high quality supplements of consistent hardness and nutrient content.
Easyblox Compressed Blocks are a palatable free-choice supplement that maximizes the use of DDGS. 24-hour access to blocks allow all livestock the opportunity to receive proper levels of nutrients regardless of their dominance status or age. Just follow the easy to use feeding recommendations for proven results.
Because Easyblox Compressed Blocks come in their own non-returnable, plastic container, there is no need for expensive bunks or feeders. Easyblox Compressed Blocks complement diverse feeding systems. Additionally, they are designed to be used effectively with other quality Hubbard Feeds products.

Following a 7 to 10 day acclimation period, average consumption should be 1 to 2 pounds per head per day for mature cattle with unrestricted forage supplies. Position the blocks 50 to 75 feet from the loafing, feeding and watering areas during the first week of feeding. Some repositioning of the 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 the blocks does not correct the situation, remove the blocks and evaluate the overall feeding program.
DO NOT ALLOW STARVED ANIMALS FREE ACCESS TO THIS BLOCK.
- Provide 1 block per 10 to 20 head. Cattle should have equal access to the blocks. Timid and smaller animals need their share of this product.
- 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.
- Feed blocks continuously along with a plentiful source of forage and clean, fresh water. Animals should not run out of blocks. When a block is two-thirds consumed, provide a new block near it.
- Cattle should consume an average of 1 to 2 lbs. per head per day based on a 1,000 lb. animal.
- Consumption of this block will vary depending upon the body condition of the animals, quality and quantity of the forages being fed, seasonal weather conditions, and most importantly, the feeding location of the blocks with respect to loafing, grazing feeding and watering areas.
- If additional mineral and vitamin fortification is desired, provide an appropriate free choice mineral supplement in addition to this supplement.
Use Only As Directed. Consumption of selenium should not exceed 3 mg per head daily.
