Over 20 plus years of research and development
Crystalyx products benefit from years of scientific research at some of the finest agricultural institutes around the world, with results consistently showing significant improvements in animal health, performance and productivity.
With a scientific approach to animal nutrition, Crystalyx continues to invest heavily in research, ensuring that each product specifically fits the requirements of modern day farming systems.
Research at Newcastle University and Kansas State University on rumen fermentation forms the foundations of Crystalyx products. Results conclusively show that feeding Crystalyx, stimulates the rumen making the rumen bugs work harder and ever more efficiently. This improvement in rumen activity allows livestock to consume more forage by up to 15% and digest what they do eat more efficiently – by as much as 10%. The increase in consumption and more efficient digestion of home grown forages allow animals to perform at their very best, by means of improving DLWG, enhancing fertility and increasing milk yield.
Research conducted at Aberystwyth University has also confirmed that the improved animal performance when Crystalyx is fed, leads to a significant reduction in methane output per kilogram of liveweight gain, of almost 20%. The Aberystwyth research team further concluded, that based on their trial results, growing heifers fed Crystalyx Cattle Booster at grass would reach bulling weight approximately six weeks earlier than control heifers on grass alone – further reducing their lifetime methane emissions.
Crystalyx has an ever growing list of research partners continually assessing the performance of Crystalyx blocks.
On-going research ensures that Crystalyx products are developed to offer livestock the very best in nutritional supplementation. Product specifications are closely monitored and tailored to meet the needs of modern day farming systems, ultimately improving livestock health and performance.
With an emphasis on research Crystalyx sponsor PhD students, encouraging the development and progression of the next generation of independent researchers.
