Livestock

Free‐choice Feeding

Cattle, sheep and goats tend to self‐regulate free‐choice consumption of Thorvin to levels consistent with recommended rates. In some cases, animals will consume larger than normal quantities, but this binge typically only lasts 30‐60 days, depending on the animal’s mineral status. If higher consumption continues beyond 60 days, mix Thorvin with salt, one‐to‐one, to reduce intake, and consult your nutritionist. When feeding Thorvin free‐choice, provide one covered mineral feeder for every 25‐30 cows and every 40‐50 sheep or goats. Also make sure animals have access to salt and clean water.
