Feeding Instructions

CAUTION: Use as directed. Consumption of selenium should not exceed 3 mg per head daily for cattle or 0.7 mg per head daily for sheep or goats.

Introductory Period: During the first week of use, place the blocks approximately 50-75 feet from loafing and/or watering areas. As animals become acclimated to the presence of the blocks, some re-positioning may be necessary to achieve proper consumption. Move blocks closer to increase consumption; further away to decrease consumption. If over-consumption occurs for more than two weeks and re-positioning of the blocks does not correct the situation, remove the blocks and evaluate the overall feeding program. DO NOT ALLOW STARVED ANIMALS FREE ACCESS TO THIS BLOCK.

Feeding Recommendations:

  1. Feed one block per 20 to 30 head of cattle or 10 head of sheep or goats. All animals should have equal access to blocks. Timid and smaller animals need their share.
  2. Place blocks where animals congregate. Locate blocks throughout the pasture at loafing, grazing, feeding and watering areas. Adequate distance must be maintained between blocks to minimize crowding - 20-30 feet minimum.
  3. Feed blocks continuously along with a plentiful source of forage and clean, fresh water.
  4. Cattle will consume 0.5 to 1.1 pound per head daily based upon a 1,000 pound animal. Sheep or goats will consume 2 to 4 ounces per head daily. 
  5. Consumption of this block may vary depending upon animal body condition, quality and quantity of forages, seasonal weather conditions, and most importantly, feeding locations of blocks with respect to loafing, grazing, feed and watering areas.
  6. If additional mineral and vitamin fortification is desired, provide an appropriate SWEETLIX self-fed mineral supplement in addition to this supplement. THIS PRODUCT DOES NOT CONTAIN SALT. PROVIDE SALT FREE CHOICE OR IN THE RATION.
