    For those of you that use Buck Power, does it take the place of mineral or is it an additive? The bucks just don't seem to gobble up mineral like the does do, so just wondering how this stuff actually works. Does anyone have the label info? I can't get it off Caprine Supply, the pic is waaay too small.

    Thanks, Jenny

    No, it does not take the place of their minerals. Those are out free-choice. I top-dress the Buck power.

    "A mineral mix formulated specifically for bucks. Designed to improve overall condition in breeding bucks which will in turn help increase fertility and potency. Add Buck Power to buck's grain ration in late spring to aid in production of sperm for late summer breedings. Feed through out breeding season to maintain breeding condition. use buck power in later winter after breeding season to bring bucks back into condition.

    Feeding instructions: Use 1 tbls. buck power per poind of grain. To maximize the effects of buck power top dress with 1/2 oz of wheat germ oil.

    Kaye wasn't there something about not using Brewers Yeast with your bucks? I for the life of me couldn't find it in any of my stuff when I looked today. But I remember something about brewers yeast and bucks. Vicki

    ?? Don't recall and it's not ringing any bells, whistles or red flags. I know with brewer's or distiller's grain, it's not a good idea to use it as a feed additive because of the moisture content and mold. ? Could that be it? I mix diamond V yeast in the buck's minerals but I think that's different.
