To be fed free-choice at the rate of 3.2 to 8 oz of block per head daily.
Feed one block per five head of cattle. This allows all animals equal access to blocks.
Place blocks where animals congregate. Locate blocks throughout pasture, placing them near water and loafing areas. Maintain adequate distance between blocks (10 feet minimum).
Do not allow animals to run out of blocks. When a block is half-consumed, place a new block near it. Place very small pieces in troughs or feed pans.
Cattle should consume 56 to 113 grams per head daily. When cattle consume the block at the recommended rate, it will supply 1.5 to 3 mg of supplemental Selenium.
Blocks can be fed to animals in confinement. Exact location of the blocks to obtain desired consumption will vary between confinement feeding programs.
