Pregnant and lactating does hit my selenium blocks that I have out for my cattle but nothing else will.  They won't touch regular trace blocks. Our soil lacks selenium.


90ppm selenium loose or block form is our go to. I read somewhere it increases production rate of deer. Like more twins and triplets?
Slap some bacon on a biscut and lets go, were burrnin daylight!

Most peoples health is a decision not a condition?

I have it out year round and last year we had a huuuuge acorn crop.  The does would go from the selenium block to acorns then back to the block.  They loved it and the fawns were as healthy as I have ever seen.  The bucks loved the acorns as well but wouldn't touch the blocks.  We have seen an increase of twins and one set of triplets.
P&Y bucks & bulls, predators and any game fish that swims!!
