The majority of goat producers can vouch for the fact that goats are special creatures. They exhibit unique behaviors quite unlike any other type of livestock. This is especially true when referring to feeding behaviors. Many goat producers face difficulty in getting their goats to consume proper amounts of mineral supplements. The good news is that this problem is easily solvable with a few simple management tips and the use of Sweetlix Goat Mineral Bucket. Ocala breeder’s feed and supply carries both the Sweetlix Goat Mineral Bucket and the Sweetlix Goat Mineral Tub.
