Sorry for all the questions just trying to learn. I've just been buying a 50lb mineral block from tsc?

You need a good loose goat mineral. Sweetlix Meatmaker, Manna Pro Goat Minerals or Cargill Right Now Onyx Cattle Mineral are just a couple examples.

They can't lick enough off of the block to have proper mineral consumption. Plus there is so much molasses in those thing.

I have the manna pro goat mineral but I don't think my boys touch it!! I am a new goat owner this year and i have 2 whethers, pygmy and nigerian. Will they definitely eat some if their body needs it? How often should it be changed?

I would only put out a small amount that they would eat in a couple days. Maybe sprinkle it on their food too.
