    Thanks, Aaron. We may have to give that a try. The di-cal & the trace minerals; do you get that at a feed store?

    I am new to this, so once it is mixed do you spread it on the ground, a log, how do you apply it. If it works it sounds cheap and I would like to give it a try.

    Got it all at MFA. I just dug somewhat of a hole just enough that water will hold in it. pour into hole 1 thing at a time the soak it with water. It will take 3 buckets 1 for salt, trace mineral, dical.
