For reference: I am using Sweetlix 16:8 meatmaker
Calcium: 14-16%
Phosphorus 8%
Salt 10-12%
Copper 1750-1810 ppm
Selenium 50ppm

I would think the Ca:ph ratio is a little high almost 3:1, the salt is a little high and the copper and selenium are a little low

They list 1200 ppm as 1200.000. So it is actually a decimal point, not a comma! You are not giving that much copper! My minerals are written like yours are. Very confusing.

Thanks for the clarification. Now it is clear, LOL ;)

Does anyone know, which cattle minerals, that is higher in copper from tractor supply?

Tried Purina minerals, my goats did not like it, along with, the ones that did eat it for some reason that year, had a lot of kidding issues.

I really don't want to order the minerals and sweetlix is not available in our area unfortunately.

I no nothing about minerals, so I was wondering... Do you still have to give minerals when you are in a region that is high in everything (selenium, copper, iron... ect.)?
