A LICK BLOCK FOR GOATS, DEER & ALPACAS

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.

GUARANTEED ANALYSIS:
Salt (NaCl) Min 65.0%
Molasses 3.0%

Net Weights:
2kg brick & 20kg block

Feeding Instructions:
Remove outer carton and plastic cover and place near water troughs, dams and stock camps. Place out sufficient blocks to avoid overcrowding of stock.

Consumption Guide:
Consumption varies with pasture and animal condition, but intake should average about 5g/day over a year.

Some say alpacas won't lick mineral blocks ... Review by AlpacaLady

Some say alpacas won't lick mineral blocks. Well my girls love Olssons Goat Block. From the first day it was in the paddock some approached it to nibble. Now most of not all will have a lick or nibble on their way past to the water trough or the shed. Crias and older girls.

Very pleased with the way they have accepted it. That alone gets it 4 stars.

Now to see if it addresses the zinc deficiency issues some have as it is much easier than catching them to treat them individually, and they can choose for themselves whether they need it or not :) If it works, it will earn 5 stars! (Posted on 23/03/14)
They love em! Review by Dee

The goats just loved it. I put it in the paddock and for the next couple of hours they just went at it. Very funny seeing how many goats could fit on one block. I just got one to try it out but I will now be buying a few more to share them around. (Posted on 21/06/13)
