Following a seven to 10 day acclimation period, average consumption should be 50 to 100 g for goats with unrestricted forage supplies. Position the blocks 15 to 25 metres 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 over consumption 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.
Feed at a rate of one block per five to 15 heads. All animals should have equal access to blocks. Timid and smaller animals need their share.
Place the 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 (three metres 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.
Goats should consume 50 to 100 g 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. Feed as the only free-choice source of salt, other minerals and vitamins.
