How to Use
Feed mixed salt to sheep at a rate of 0.25 ounces (seven grams) per head per day. The maximum feeding rate of the mixed salt is eight grams per head, per day, which will provide 0.7 mg of selenium.
For goats, add premix to 50 pounds of cattle trace mineral salt to provide copper supplementation. Inclusion rate may need to be lowered if cattle trace mineral contains selenium.
Add to 50 pounds of feed grade salt to make trace mineral salt for your flocks trace mineral supplementation program.
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.

Since I started using this product over a year ago my mineral bill has dropped by better than half, but the best part is that all my lambs have been born strong, able to nurse, and ready to keep up with the herd. I haven't had any goiter issues as I had before this truly is a great product.

Decent product but salt tends harden/clump easier than other mineral mixes.
Frank V from Iowa
My fed lambs did well on the selenium/iodine premix and loose salt. My ewes look very good and condition scored very well going into late gestation with the product. The best attribute of the product is that it reduced my mineral bill by half!
