I bought 80lbs of salt todayfor $9 at Home depot,thanks for the tip.Im keeping a trophy rock at that site also for a visual and the bag is for those who want to drink the water in the hole and eat the dirt.I only have one site over 240 acres but may expand to two with the new sources of salt.I think im going to put out cattle minerals in the same places to make mine a super lick.

It doesn't take big machinery to make your own block out of the bag stuff if you would rather have the block and Redmond's sales a 50# compressed block of the same stuff. I dunno the price, but I'm sure its less than $16.


does Co-Op sell the compressed block as well?

that has been my experience. i bought salt, trace,and Di-cal and mixed it. it cost me a lot more than this stuff, but I will say when the rain hits it it gets hard. I put it out a month or two ago and there are still big chunks there.

If you pour it in a mound it will harden and last a long time.

Just read the label and make sure there is no Copper in it. I hear that is not good for the deer and various other animals.

I bought some of the Redmund trace minerals today and cut a 5 gal bucket in half to hold it. Worked pretty good. 1 half will hold half of a 50 lb bag of minerals. Thanks to Rockhound for saving me some $$.
