Introductory Period

Position the tubs 50 to 75 feet from the loafing, feeding and watering areas during the first week of feeding. Some repositioning of the tubs may be necessary as the cattle become acclimated to the presence of the tubs. Move tubs closer to increase consumption; further away to decrease consumption. If overconsumption occurs for more than two weeks and repositioning of the tubs does not correct the situation, remove the tubs and evaluate the overall feeding program. DO NOT ALLOW STARVED ANIMALS FREE ACCESS TO THIS TUB.

Feeding Recommendations


1. Provide 1 tub per 10 head of cattle. All animals should have equal access to tubs. Timid and smaller animals need their share of this product.

2. Place tubs where animals congregate. Locate tubs throughout the pasture at loafing, grazing, feeding and watering areas. Adequate distance must be maintained between tubs to minimize crowding – 10 feet minimum.

3. Feed tubs continuously along with a plentiful source of average to good quality forage and clean, fresh water. Cattle should not run out of tubs. When a tub is two-thirds consumed, provide a new tub near it.

4. Cattle should consume 1 to 2 lbs. per head per day. Consumption of this tub may vary depending upon animal body condition, quality and quantity of the forages being fed, seasonal weather conditions, and most importantly, the feeding location of tubs with respect to loafing, grazing, feeding and watering areas.

5. If additional mineral and vitamin fortification is desired, feed in addition to this tub a nutritionally balanced mineral and vitamin supplement.


Use as directed. Consumption of Selenium should not exceed 3 mgs per head per day.

This product, which contains added copper, should not be fed to sheep or any species that have a low tolerance to supplemental copper.
