Feed at a rate of 1 block per 10 – 20 horses. This allows animals equal access to blocks. Place blocks where horses congregate. Locate blocks throughout pasture, placing them near water and loafing areas. Maintain adequate distance between blocks (10 ft. Minimum). Do not allow horses to run out of blocks. When a block is half-consumed, place a new block near it. Place small pieces in troughs or feed pans. Horses will consume on average of 1 to 2 lbs. per head daily. Blocks can be fed to horses in confinement. Exact location to obtain desired consumption will vary between confinement feeding programs. Feed as the only FREE CHOICE source of salt, minerals and vitamins. Provide fresh, clean water to all horses at all times.
Following a 7 to 10 day acclimation period, average consumption should be 1 to 2 lbs. per head, per day for horses with unrestricted forage supplies. Position the blocks 50-75 feet from the loafing, feeding and watering areas during the first week of feeding. Some repositioning 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 overconsumption occurs for more than two weeks and repositioning 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.
CAUTION: USE AS DIRECTED. Consumption of selenium should not exceed 3 mg per head per day.
