I’ve recently started using Manna Pro goat minerals on their grower feed & I put a mineral block out for them, (there are 7 other adult goats in the pasture).

Mineral blocks are too hard for them to get enough minerals from and usually they are mostly salt.

Manna Pro Goat Mineral is a poor mineral, and should be given free choice anyway (not topped over feed).

For now, put the Manna Pro out 24/7 free choice.

Then order a better mineral blend such as Sweetlix Meat Maker 16:8 or Purina Wind Rain & Storm Cattle Mineral from Tractor Supply. It’s very easily to find.

All your goats should get this. You

For the loose mineral use what NigerianDwarfOwener707 recommends, I know a lot of goat owners here in northern illinois swear by Purina Wind Rain & Storm Cattle Mineral. I recommend making sure you have the bucket or whatever you put mineral in high enough so they don't poop in it, we all know they are way too good at that lol
