This economical, self-fed multi-purpose mineral supplement block is ideal for situations where livestock of different species are kept together. The moderate salt levels in the STOCKADE® Multi-Purpose 4 Mineral Block means that livestock will eat it more consistently than high-salt options, resulting in better mineral intake. These convenient, weather-resistent blocks don't require costly feeders and can be placed directly on the ground where needed.

Feeding and Management
- Feed at a rate of one block per 5 head of cattle or horses and one block per 10 head of goats. This allows all animals equal access to blocks.
- 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 feet minimum.
- Do not allow animals to 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 and horses should consume 2 to 4 ounces per head daily. Goats should consume 0.25 to 0.5 ounce per head daily.
- Blocks can be fed to animals in confinement. Exact location of block to obtain desired consumption will vary between confinement feeding programs.
- Provide fresh, clean water at all times.
