    At a quick glance.....it looks about average compared to some others I have looked at.....maybe somebody on here uses it, and can tell you how they like it.

    I have used the MannaPro minerals for several years for my goats. I sprinkle 1/4 c. on top of their milk stand feed each morning. The girls always eat them. I like that copper is included in these minerals. Has been hard for me to try anything else, and I hate to handle block minerals.

    The one thing you do know is that Manna Pro products are very high quality. Super multi species so really look and make sure they have enough of everything you want in them. My loose minerals are about low iron, high copper and since I also feed whole oats and not a sacked feed with extra minerals in it, I do want a really well balanced mineral (A, E, D, magnesium, Zinc, kelp, yeasts, probiotics, selenium etc.) without having to mix. Other than the lack of soy this loose mineral is nearly identical to the calf manna milk pellets. A good thing. Vicki

    I've been using the Manna Pro Goat Mineral since November when I got my babies. They LOVE it, I have a Meat Maker Tub in there with them, but they didn't touch that (still haven't), but went to town on the Manna Pro Minerals. My area is listed as being low/questionable for selenium - but so far all the goaties are doing fine (no other supplementation). I have one doe due to kid in 2 weeks. If that goes well too I think I'll continue to use them. They don't carry them locally, I ordered through Jeffers, but didn't have to pay freight so I didn't mind. One thing I don't have to worry about is if they are getting enough mineral. I offer it free choice, and have to add about a cup at least once a week. BTW - mine are alos BONKERS for the Manna Pro Goat Treats. It's the licorice flavor I'm certain. I gave Probios once when we first brought them here and they didn't want it - until I gound up some of the goat treats in the food processor and then added the probios paste making a crumble. They attacked me for it!

    I saw this product recently at TSC also - what immediately deterred me was the 8.99 per 8 lb price tag. Don't know if the amount would be adequate but it does contain AC.

    Manna Pro Goat Minerals. Is that the actual name of it? It contains AC... that is good. Awful pricey though. ???
     
  13. We just bought our first bag of it and I gave it to the girls. We are going to see how they do on it. :)

    Thank you for the link. I saw the pic and had to laugh at myself. I have that same bag sitting right next to my desk. LOL I did not know it contained AC. YEAH! :biggrin It is "Goat Minerals" by Manna Pro. I guess the "Manna Pro" name threw me off. :lol

  16. Manna Pro is more expensive then the rural king minerals that i was using.

    The rural king mineral is 83 cents a pound, the manna pro is 1.28 a pound. Just figured it up.
     
  17. I found that by quibbling over the amount per pound and going cheaper is not recommended. Pay the price for an excellent mineral. It just makes sense to give them the right minerals than to have their health falter and have more expense at the vets. Tammy

    Right now they only sell it in the small bag, maybe we should all write them and say they should offer a larger bag. Might bring down the price a bit, it is kinda pricey for a larger herd.
