This self-fed supplement block is a perfect compliment to most commercial feeds and is well suited for all classes of sheep and goats. These small, pressed blocks are perfect for sheep and goats, as lambs and kids won’t soil these like larger tubs or feed troughs. Pressed blocks provide stress-free and worry-free continuous supplementation of key nutrients.
For all classes of sheep and goats.

CAUTION: Use as directed. Consumption of selenium should not exceed 0.7 mg per head daily.
Introductory Period: Following a 7 to 10 day acclimation period, average consumption should be 4 to 5 ounces for sheep with unrestricted forage supplies. Position the blocks 50 to 75 feet from loafing, feeding and watering areas. 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
Feeding and Management
- Feed at a rate of one block per 5 to 10 head. All animals should have equal access to blocks. Timid and smaller animals need their share.
- Place 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.
- Feed blocks continuously along with plentiful sources of forage and clean, fresh water. Animals 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 cleaned up.
- Sheep should consume an average of 4 to 5 ounces per head daily.
- 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 STOCKADE self-fed mineral supplement in addition to this supplement.
