Shepherd’s Choice™ Management TipIn areas with excess moisture and humidity, add an anti-caking agent to the trace mineral salt to prevent the mixture from clumping. As an alternative, reduce the amount of salt offered to a weekly supply, or less.
Several anti-caking agents are specific for salt. They are calcium aluminum silicate, calcium silicate, calcium stearate, magnesium stearate or magnesium silicate. The inclusion rate should start at 1% of the salt mixture and can go up to 2%. Diatomaceous earth can also be used at a 2% inclusion rate.

This product works great for sheep.

A great product which I have been using for over 25 years - But the price is way inflated. Premier has added almost $20.00 per bag to cover the "free" freight option. It would be much more economical to just make this a fob Iowa item and let us pay our own freight.

Great product but has jumped in price almost 15-20.00 since last year when bought from Pipestone! Add shipping if you don’t by 100.00 worth and way over priced!! What gives Premier?
