So I got the low down on minerals and mineral feeders here. I’m learning new stuff all the time. When you move around you see a lot of different ways of doing things.
They feed lose salt mixed with minerals. I asked the boss why not salt/mineral blocks. I was impressed with his answer. He said they had the forage tested on the ranch to see what minerals were missing now they buy a special mix for their specific needs. Not really available as blocks and is less expensive than blocks. I’m all about cutting input costs when you can figure a way to do it. There isn’t a huge margin for profit in raising cattle.
I drove by the neighbors and saw this today.
