    Wanted to know what it was and how fast I'd use it up before buying. Online is my only option.

    Ah ok. Dyne is a high caloric additive that you can had to your livestock's food to help with energy and weight. I put a couple of squirts of it in my bottle calf's milk 2/day and they have shown nice results. As to how fast you would use it up, that would depend on how often you used it. the smallest you can buy is a quart and that will last me several weeks. If you don't use it all the time then the one gallon would be a good buy as well.

    Thanks.
    Bottle came in today and it has dosage for both standard and mini sheep, how fancy!
    About 10ml 3x a day it said, but doing one 12ml syringe a day by mouth for now, in case it happens to disrupt digestion any.
