Trace mineral will work, and I have used it. I have started buying the more expensive salt I think its around 15 bucks for a 50lb bag. The reason I have started doing this is purely experimental. My cattle will eat the expensive salt in two weeks. The trace mineral it takes them a month and a half. Why? Trace mineral is mostly salt which all animals need, but the more expensive salt has a bigger percentage of other nutrients in the salt. Its called Trace mineral because it only has a trace of other nutrients that animals crave. Ill let you know how it goes.
