When to Use Olssons Go-Block: In goats, the most common mineral deficiencies are of cobalt, copper, iodine and selenium. Potential deficiencies of zinc and manganese may occur in some parts of Australia. During pregnancy and lactation requirements are high for calcium, phosphorous and sodium. There are those who say that goats should not be given urea as a supplement. This idea is not based on science, but rather unfortunate experiences with urea poisoning. Goats are ruminants, they recycle urea in the rumen and have a microbial population in their rumen. Therefore they can benefit from non-protein sources of nitrogen that can be utilized in the rumen to build up microbial protein. In fact this is a very economical way of supplying protein to the animal, especially when protein deficiencies occur in the pasture. If pasture or diet will not adequately provide the mineral nutrients which are required , GO BLOCK can help to make good the deficiency.
