For beef cattle on pasture.  

About the Product

 

Easylix 20 AN Pressed Block is an all plant-based protein block that is ideal for all classes of cattle on medium quality forages. These conveniently sized 33.3-lb blocks fit easily on the back of standard ATVs. Designed to deliver trace minerals at 50% of NRC recommendations for maximum flexibility. Use alone for maintenance situations or add a more fortified mineral supplement for cattle with higher production needs.

Introductory Period: Following a 7 to 10 day acclimation period, average consumption should be 1 to 2 pounds for mature cattle with unrestricted forage supplies. Position the blocks 50 to 75 feet from loafi ng, feeding and watering areas. 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 Directions

Feeding and Management

  1. Feed at a rate of one block per 5 to 15 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 and watering areas. Adequate distance must be maintained between blocks to prevent crowding - 10 feet minimum.
  3. Feed blocks continuously along with plentiful sources 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. Place very small pieces in a feed pan or trough to be cleaned up.
  4. Cattle should consume 1 to 2 pounds per head daily based on a 1,000-lb 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 supplementation is desired, provide an appropriate Easylix self-fed mineral supplement in addition to this supplement.
Caution

USE AS DIRECTED. Consumption of selenium should not exceed 3 mg per head daily for cattle.
