Feeding Directions

Feeding and Management
  1. 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.
  2. Place the 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 feet minimum.
  3. Feed blocks continuously along with plentiful sources 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. Place very small pieces in a feed pan or trough to be clean up.
  4. Goats should consume 2 to 4 ounces per head daily.
  5. 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 loafi ng, grazing, feeding and watering areas.
  6. Feed as the only SELF-FED source of salt or other minerals and vitamins.

 

General Guidelines

Introductory Period: Following a 7 to 10 day acclimation period, average consumption should be 2 to 4 ounces for goats with unrestricted forage supplies. Position the blocks 50 to 75 feet from loafing, feeding and watering areas. Some repositioning of blocks my be necessary as animals become accustomed to the presences of the blocks. Move blocks closer to increase consumption; further away to decrease consumption. If over consumption 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.
 

Caution

USE AS DIRECTED. Consumption of selenium should not exceed 0.7 mg per head daily.
 

Warning

This product, which contains added copper, should not be fed to sheep or any species with a
low tolerance to supplemental copper.
