Benefits of a mineral lick

A friend sent me this article yesterday and asked me what I thought of it.

I agree with a lot of what he said but then he became a salesmen for a "typical" company that pushes their wildlife products. Very average products at a very high price point. Again, another reason why I try to educate the public on how to read tags and know what your buying.

So what is a great deer mineral?

One that contains between 15-25% salt

One that contains as much calcium and phosphorous in a close to 2-1 calcium to phosphorous ratio

One that contains as high of levels of zinc, manganese, copper and selenium as possible and in the forms of sulfates and chelates/polysaccharides verses oxides.

One that contains natural flavoring agents

One that contains low to no filler products.

I sell my deer mineral for $20 per 25 lb bag and there is nothing like it on the market and i can't pack any more nutrition in that bag of mineral without lowering the calcium and phosphorous levels. My 8 lb bags sell for $8. I have much higher nutrition levels than any product on the market and for about 1/2 the price of many big name/box store products......and added value by the ability to email or call me for opinions and expertise.

None less, good reading and food for thoughts.
