Does anyone have a good kelp supplier?
I order it from Hoeggers. I don't use very much of it, otherwise it would be pretty expensive. I don't think I can get it locally around here.
We got ours from Caprine. We don't use a lot of it, though. I prefer Clovite instead (my local feed store ordered it for me).
i would say go collect some.. but... i'm only an hour from the ocean .. so its easier forme
Thanks for the replies I was looking at Hoeggers or Countryside for the Kelp but the shipping is about the same as the product. I have recently started giving Clovite about a week ago on the suggestion of my horse expert boyfriend. Have you used it very long and would you say you can see good results? I have a couple of does with course horse like coats, but the rest are really nice and soft and shinny. I give Coop forage loose minerals, Sweetlix meat maker in the tub(recently added) and feed everyone a mixture of 1 part Noble Goat mix/1 part BOSS/3 parts alfalfa pellets (2x daily) and then mixed hay 2x a day. I have just started showing this summer and was looking to improve coats and shine.
Thanks so much,
Found this on craigslist...
To order ...here is the site...
what are the benefits of kelp?
Great question Katrina....I would love to know myself.... :wink: :greengrin:
Here's a little clip from the thorvin kelp page, above: "Kelps are among the most useful species of seaweeds. The most valuable kelps grow in cold, mineral-rich waters and grow more slowly. These kelps collect minerals, vitamins, enzymes, amino acids and other beneficial bioactive properties."
They are loaded with vitamins and minerals.
I buy my kelp from the Asian Market in Atlanta. I get the 9 pack which is wrapped into 9 seprate sealed packs. (stays fresh) Tastes ok too. (why should the goats get all the treats) They will run you over for it. I give it about once a month or so. I think I paid $3.00 for it. They have big bags of it, I just like the idea of it being kept "fresh" and not going "stale". Plus you don't smell it when it's nice and sealed up. :greengrin:
