For just a few goats, the baking soda at the grocery store is fine. Just buy the large box and pour a pile into the corner of their feeder, add more if they like it. My goats love it, but I do know other folks whose goats don't. I buy my loose cattle minerals from the Purina store in town. Each feed store has tons of different minerals. I prefer the loose, as I just don't see how they can lick enough minerals to do any good off the blocks. I keep the 50 pound bags in rubbermaid contaniers so they last a long time. I just pour a pile in the corner of feeders for kids, and into mineral feeders for adults, replacing or adding as needed. I try to find a mineral that has at least 700ppm of copper for my Nubians. Obviously if you have sheep you could not let them have access to this mineral. Vicki
