The Crystalyx BioBarrel Focuses on Environment

Jamie Johansen

The Crystalyx BioBarrel was on display in the Alltech booth during the 2018 Cattle Industry Convention & NCBA Trade Show. This unique barrel allows for optimal mineral intake and is environmentally friendly.

“Crystalyx products are unique because they are a low moisture block. They are a dehydrated molasses product which is continuously looking for moisture to soften. Cattle consume by licking. They can’t bite or chew it. This ensures intake is regulated,” said Dan Dhuyvetter, Ridley Block a division of Alltech.

Wheat straw, soy flour and a small amount of wood fibers make up the content of the biobarrel. The container will degrade over time yet still withstand precipitation.

Dan said as attendees see the biobarrel in the booth it strikes up great conversation and gets them wanting to learn more. If you are also interested in learning more listen here: Interview with Dan Dhuyvetter Ridley Block Operations
