Mass produced salt licks are produced using salt with minerals added in the manufacturing process. Himalayan rock salt licks are literally ‘rock hard’, this means that animals are unable to bite chunks off the block, a problem that can occur with the softer pressed salt lick.
These licks are also much more weather resistant, which means they can be safely left outside in the field for farm animals to self dose.
Our experience has shown that farm animals and pets prefer these to other salt licks. Farmers have historically provided salt licks for their cattle, horses, and other herbivores to encourage healthy growth and development.
A salt lick is a deposit of mineral salts used by animals to supplement their nutrition, ensuring that they get enough minerals in their diets. A wide assortment of animals, primarily herbivores, use salt lick to get essential nutrients lick calcium, magnesium, sodium and zinc.
Himalayan Salt Licks for farm animals are obviously distinctive by their colour, however it is not just this that sets them apart from other licks. We like to describe them as salt licks with nothing added or nothing taken out and we believe they are one of the purest forms of salt (sodium chloride) available.
Each bag contains 25-30kg of Himalayan Rock Salt, bags may vary in weight do the natural shape of rocks.
