Management and Feeding Program

Ultralyx UltraPro 40% Protein Tub is to be fed free-choice to cattle. All protein, mineral and vitamin ingredients are selected for high biological availability and stability. One (1) pound of this product provides 3 mg of supplemental selenium, 45.4 mg of supplemental copper and 0.4 pounds of supplemental protein.

Cattle Free-Choice Feeding Recommendations


1. Provide 1 tub per 10 head of cattle. All cattle should have equal access to the tubs. Timid and smaller animals need their share of this product.

2. Place the tubs where animals congregate. Locate the tubs throughout the pasture at loafing, grazing, feeding and watering areas. Adequate distance must be maintained between tubs to minimize crowding – 10 feet minimum.

3. Feed the tubs continuously along with a plentiful source of average to good quality forage and clean, fresh water. Cattle should not run out of tubs. When a tub is two-thirds consumed, provide a new tub near it.

4. Cattle will consume ¾ to 1 lb per head per day. Consumption of this tub 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 tubs with respect to loafing, grazing, feeding and watering areas.

5. If additional mineral and vitamin fortification is desired, feed in addition to this tub a nutritionally balanced mineral/vitamin supplement.

Introductory Period

Position the tubs 50 to 75 feet from the loafing, feeding and watering areas during the first week of feeding. Some repositioning of the tubs may be necessary as the cattle become acclimated to the presence of the tubs. Move tubs closer to increase consumption; further away to decrease consumption. If over consumption occurs for more than two weeks and repositioning of the tubs does not correct the situation, remove the tubs and evaluate the overall feeding program. DO NOT ALLOW STARVED CATTLE FREE ACCESS TO THIS TUB.


Use only as directed. Consumption of this product by sheep and goats may result in copper toxicity.
