Loose Goat Mineral
This is the recommended loose goat mineral from the Thrifty Homesteader that we have been using. After discovering that our goats had a copper deficiency, I was pleased to find that the Purina loose goat mineral provides the highest levels of copper and selenium, along with the right combination of ingredients. We make it available to our goats 24/7, allowing them to consume the amount they require, which typically ranges from 1/4 to 1/2 ounce per day depending on the size of the goat. You can see what we’re feeding our goats currently, here.
Loose Goat Mineral Comparison
In comparison, the copper and selenium levels in the Bio-Ag goat premix we include in their feed are four times and five times lower respectively, compared to the Purina loose goat mineral. However, if you only have access to the Bio-Ag premix, the goats may compensate by consuming more of it to meet their nutritional needs, so there is still some benefit.
