How to Use & Apply
Introductory Period: Following a 7 to 10 day acclimation period, average consumption should be 1 to 2.5 pounds per head per day for horses with unrestricted forage supplies. Position the blocks 50 to 75 feet from loafing, feeding and watering areas. Some repositioning of blocks may be necessary as animals become acclimated to the presence of the blocks. Move blocks closer to increase consumption; further away to decrease consumption. If overconsumption occurs for more than two weeks and repositioning of blocks does not correct the situation, remove blocks and evaluate the overall feeding program. DO NOT ALLOW STARVED ANIMALS FREE ACCESS TO THIS BLOCK.Feeding Recommendations:

Animals should not run out of tubs. When a tub is two-thirds consumed, provide a new tub near it.Horses should consume 1 to 2.5 pounds per head daily based on a 1,000-pound animal.Consumption of this supplement may vary depending upon animal body condition, quality and quantity of forages, seasonal weather conditions, and most importantly, feeding locations of blocks with respect to loafing, grazing, feeding and watering areas.If additional mineral and vitamin fortification is desired, provide an appropriate SWEETLIX® self-fed mineral supplement in addition to this supplement.
