Power-lyx Stress & Weaning is a nutrient dense, self-fed supplement designed for calves, growing cattle and mature beef cattle fed moderate to high protein forages. This low-moisture block is fortified with electrolytes, high levels of vitamins and minerals and chelated/organic trace minerals helping overcome nutritional stress associated with weaning, shipping and the breeding period. Recommended feeding rates for calves range from 0.15 to 0.25 pounds per head daily and 0.25 to 0.75 pounds per head daily for mature cattle, based on a 1,000 lb animal.

CAUTION: Use as directed. Consumption of selenium should not exceed 3 mg per head daily.
WARNING: This product, which contains added copper, should not be fed to sheep or any species with a low tolerance to supplemental copper.
Introductory Period: Following a 7 to 10 day acclimation period, average consumption should be 0.15 to 0.75 pounds for cattle with unrestricted forage supplies. Position the blocks 50 to 75 feet from loafing, 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 over consumption 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 and Management
Feed at a rate of one block per 15 to 30 head. All animals should have equal access to blocks. Timid and smaller animals need their share.
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.
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.
Calves should consume from 0.15 to 0.25 pounds per head daily. Mature cattle should consume from 0.25 to 0.75 pounds per head daily based on a 1,000-pound animal.
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.
If additional vitamin and mineral fortification is desired, provide an appropriate STOCKADE self-fed mineral supplement in addition to this supplement.
