Sweetlix meat maker.
Thanks, but sounds a little bit $$ for meWe have used a lot of mineral over the years and our does will only eat the Purina loose minerals. I'm hoping to get a bag of the DuraFerm Goat Concept-Aid minerals to try. I have heard it is expensive compared to other brands, but that it is really good. So I am hoping I can possibly find a dealer near us when I am ready to get more mineral. Last year I called around and couldn't find it, and when I did find one they mentioned $75? It is a 50lb. bag. I chatted with a rep on their FB page last summer and they said it is targeted for breeding animals but is good for all ages. So this is one I am definitely interested in.
DuraFerm® Goat Concept•Aid® - 50 lb. bag - DuraFerm
I have another question about this mineral, do you put it out free choice? Or since it's for cattle and has a higher level of everything , do you only give them a little bit, or is it fine if they eat a lot ? Thanks a bunchI switched over to Purina Wind & Rain last year and they love it -- when it is fresh!
No one here will eat any brand of minerals that's been out for more than a day or so.
Thank you so muchHi there!
It depends on what you have available to you and where you are located.
Sweetlix is a really good mineral. Dura Ferm concept aid is close behind.
If you live in TN or KY, the best mineral I have ever seen is Co-op Supreme Goat Mineral.
I think Cargill's Onyx is okay but I would probably still choose sweetlix. That or Purina Goat Mineral.
I don't love Purina's Cattle Mineral/Wind & Rain, nor do I love Manna Pro - but I would choose MP over Purina Cattle.
MP has high quality minerals in the ingredients, just not enough of them!!
What's important is that you know why a mineral is a good mineral - brand doesn't matter, learn how to read a GA and ingredients list label:
