    If that is the only choice I had I would go with the top one because of the different type of copper in it also the 2nd one had red iron oxide and carmel flavoring which I don't care for.
    Tho the 2nd one has higher amounts of both copper and selenium.
    The amount of ammonium chloride in minerals is not enough to hurt or help much. IMO

    take the time to compare any mineral with the contents of the Bluebonnet mineral list in 101.

    the second one is the only Goat mineral I have available to me, the cow minerals generally don't have the correct phos to calcium ratio around here.

    If you are feeding alfalfa in any form don't not use a better mineral because of that dang 2 to 1 ration some fool made up :) I know when talking to the nutritonist at the coop in Bryan my ca/ph was 5 to 1...I didn't go home and change anything. Vicki

    well I don't think there are any good minerals available around here. and that one if it's not good is $12. for a tiny pail! everything else is goat and sheep, or cattle with fly poisen. I HATE looking at min labels trying to find a good one. It's like taking first place in a goat show with all crppy sale barn goats! wo hoo the best of the crppy!
