DuMOR® Sheep Mineral from Tractor Supply
It's rebuilding time for ewes and rams and a time of rapid growth for lambs. Don't forget to feed salt and mineral mix it helps your sheep make better use of summer pastures and grain rations. Be sure not to feed any minerals that are designed for cattle, goats, horses or pigs. They all contain way too much copper for sheep. I use DuMOR® Sheep Mineral. It is designed to provide the needed minerals and vitamins, including salt, to sheep grazing pasture, rangeland, or drylot forages, but may also be used in a variety of feeding programs. Provides properly balanced amounts of critical vitamins and minerals needed to support optimal health, reproduction and growth, providing what is often lacking or unbalanced in native pastures, forages, or unfortified concentrates.
Contains no added copper and is appropriate for all classes and ages of sheep
May be fed free-choice, as a top dress or mixed into the ration
