    I was thinking to use it in conjunction with my nature organic goat mineral and kelp - all in separate mineral bins.

    I am waiting for my selenium gel to come in. I just saw this website for red edge and would like to try this salt, but want to make sure it's a reputable place.

    I keep reading about the importance of cobalt as well as copper and selenium. Do you think this is a good product? At least for this product, there's cobalt.

    From their listing:
    At Redmond Agriculture, we understand that when your animals feel good, you feel good. That’s why we offer our Goat Mineral Mix—a premium sea salt with naturally occurring essential trace minerals. This mix is also fortified with selenium (30 ppm), manganese, cobalt, copper, iodine, zinc and vitamins A, D and E. The salt in our Goat Mineral Mix is free of chemical processing, preferred by livestock, and helps animals maintain a normal function. It is stocked in 5 lb and 25 lb bags.
    Redmond Goat Mineral Mix’s granules are the perfect size for mixing or feeding free choice.

    Why wouldn't this be a mineral?
    I don't use it but I do have one of their rocks and that's definitely a salt.
    It also says Wal-mart carries it (?)

    Look at the salt content.

    A loose mineral should have no more than 20-25%.

    Also look at the copper. Should be at least 1500, and 3 times that amount in zinc.
