I'm a little worried about UC for my bucks. Not, I'm worried that they have it, but I'm worried that I'm not doing enough to prevent it. They get a mineral daily that has AC in it, but I don't know if that s enough to prevent?

I personally haven't done more than that and it seems to be working out fine with my herd. I also castrate when they are older (6-8months) and don't grain after 6 months of age. I feed a grass hay in the evening and a 50/50 alfalfa/grass in the morning. With of course free choice minerals and blocks.

The prevention studies that have been done are not 100% so there are a lot of ideas on prevention.. cider in the water, Ph testing urine, zero alfalfa hay etc.

Thanks for replying! Yes, I just heard about the ACV in the water; I might do that for peace of mind. :)
