Bryant 37% Forage Stretcher Supplement Block

Bryant Grain’s 37% Forage Stretcher Block is a 33.3# pressed block for cattle grazing low quality forages.  It is designed to deliver protein, salt, vitamins and minerals in one convenient block.

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 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 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.

For Beef Cattle and Lactating and Non-Lactating Dairy Cattle on Pasture cattle on pasture.

  • Delivers protein, salt, vitamins and minerals in one convenient block.
  • Combination of natural protein and NPN (non-protein nitrogen) for optimum protein utilization.
  • Weather-resistant block that can be feed in troughs or scattered in pasture.
  • Vitamin and mineral fortified.

  • 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.
  • 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 ft minimum.
  • Feed blocks continuously along with plentiful sources of forge and clean, fresh water.  Cattle 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.
  • Cattle should consume 1 to 2 pounds per head daily based on a 1,000 lb 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 mineral and vitamin supplementation is desired, provide an appropriate free choice mineral supplementation in addition to this supplement.
