I was disappointed with this product. I have had to change crayons twice on our rams and the rams have only been out for 10 days. Our temperatures have stayed in between 50 degrees at night to 75 during the day. The crayons are very soft. I will be purchasing different crayons next year.

I am not pleased with this product at all. For years we used the old hot crayons and they would last about 12-15 days. I put one of these new "all temperature" crayons on 5 days ago and every single bit of the crayon is already gone. It is way too soft. Our temperatures have been between 70 and 90 degrees. I hope they go back to the old crayons.

I purchased the mild crayons this time because the hot weather crayons didn't mark during our December breeding time and the cold weather had just crumbled off the previous December. I assumed because it was too hot in Texas during the winter. The mild crayons marked initially on two bucks but quit very quickly. The mild crayon didnt mark at all on another buck from the moment I turned him out. Don't know if it is the slick hair of a goat or these crayons. My parents live several counties away from me but breed goats at the same time and purchase their crayons locally and they work fine.
I purchased the cold weather markers. Its been in the low 20 here and the markers are working well. The blue and red show up the best.
Don't show up the best, I would recommend the hot instead of mild or cold.
