Use as directed. Consumption of selenium should not exceed 3 mg per head daily for cattle.
This product, which contains added copper, should not be fed to sheep or any species with a low tolerance to supplemental copper.
Following a 7 to 10 day acclimation period, average consumption should be 1 to 2 lb per head per day for mature cattle with unrestricted forage supplies. Position the blocks 50 to 75' from loaﬁng, feeding and watering areas. Some re-positioning of blocks may be necessary as animals become acclimated to the presence of the blocks. Move blocks closer to increase consumption; further away to decrease consumption. If over consumption occurs for more than two weeks and re-positioning of blocks does not correct the situation, remove blocks and evaluate the overall feeding program. Do not allow starved animals free access to this block.
- Feed at a rate of one block per 5 to 15 head. All animals should have equal access to blocks. Timid and smaller animals need their share.
- Place the blocks where animals congregate. Locate blocks throughout the pasture at loafing, grazing and watering areas. Adequate distance must be maintained between blocks to prevent crowding - 10' minimum.
- Feed block continuously along with plentiful sources of forage and clean, fresh water. Cattle should not run out of blocks. When a block is two-thirds consumed, provide a new block near it. Place very small pieces in a feed pan or trough to be clean up.
- Cattle should consume 1 to 2 lb per head daily based on a 1,000 lb animal.
- 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, feeding and watering areas.
- If additional mineral and vitamin fortification is desired, provide an appropriate SWEETLIX self-fed mineral supplement in addition to this supplement.
