    I live in a area that has copper and selenium deficiencies. I ran out of the bag I had been using through the winter (cant remember the name right off). I have been feeding manna pro minerals for about a month but have noticed a doe getting some orange on her legs and another losing tail hair.

    I have Nigerian dwarfs and a pygmy.
    I have access to tsc and rural king but will likely have to order online. Any good suggestions?

    My ND don't care for the loose minerals (although i still add it to their feed) they LOVE the goat mineral block from TS......goat candy :)....the loose minerals alway are on the bottom, of their feed bowls...untouched

    Mine love loose minerals, my pygmy goats I had before as a teen wouldn't touch them. They liked tubs.
