Default Where to buy sea kelp?

I want to try out sea kelp for our goats and wondered where can I buy it in bulk.It's expensive at Jeffers and Hoeggers so hoping to find a large amount at a cheaper price. Local would be great but ordering online is fine to. I have heard alot of good things adding it to their diet so I really want to try it out on them.Thanks for any help!

I got a couple boxes of it off of Amazon. It's organic powdered kelp...works great for mixing with my minerals.

A local feed store orders it for me from Acadian Seaplants Limited.

Wow I did not realize that kelp was such a serious supplement! Lots of vitamins and stuff--so if one feeds Onyx right now--would there be a need to add kelp?

Can dogs eat the kelp?

I get my in 50 lb. bags from the feed store. At first the goats didn't seem to care for it but now they love it. I have it out free choice and they eat more of it than the minerals or baking soda. I have just started using it so it is hard to see any benefits yet.

Yes dogs can have kelp too. It is good for them.

That is also where I get mine. Looked around a lot and that was by far the best price delivered to my door.

Do you feed the kelp in place of the mineral or with the mineral?
