Feeding Instructions

CAUTION: Use as directed. Consumption of selenium should not exceed 0.7 mg per head daily.

WARNING: DO NOT FEED TO SHEEP. This product, which contains added copper, should not be fed to sheep or any species with a low tolerance to supplemental copper.

Introductory Period: Following a 7 to 10 day acclimation period, average consumption should be 2 to 4 ounces for mature goats 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 ANIMALSFREEACCESSTOTHISBLOCK


Feeding Recommendations:

  1. Feed 1 block per 10-20 head. All animals should have equal access to blocks. Timid and smaller animals need their share.
  2. Place blocks where animals congregate. Locate blocks throughout the pasture at loafing, grazing, feeding and watering areas. Adequate distance must be maintained between blocks to minimize crowding - 10 feet minimum.
  3. Feed blocks continuously along with a plentiful source of forage and clean, fresh water. Animals should not run out of blocks. When a block is two-thirds consumed, provide a new block near it.
  4. Goats should consume 2 to 4 ounces per head daily based on a 150-200 pound animal.
  5. Consumption of this supplement 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.
  6. Offer no other FREE CHOICE salt or mineral supplement when feeding this product.
