I worked with an OSB plant up in Canada that was using the graphite blocks for the same application and having good success with it (and it doesn't get near as messy). To be honest though, I'm not sure that the Schaffer's Silver Streak is viscous enough for that type of application to begin with. Can you share the size, speed and operating temp?

I would like to get away from oil if there is something better. The oil is messy.

I don't blame you one bit. I know guys that have had great success with the graphite blocks, and those would obviously be a cleaner alternative. There are greases out there as well that would do what you need, but it could turn just as messy depending on a bunch of factors. Are the girth gear and trunnion bearings separated (are they different lube points)?
