Mineral supplement for healthy goats of all ages and breeds 
Purina Goat mineral is uniquely formulated and rich in nutrients essential to the proper development and well being of your goats. Purina research has shown that correct levels and ratios of key minerals such as Copper, Zinc, Magnesium, Calcium, Phosphorus and Selenium are critical for growth, reproduction and proper functioning of the immune system.  Purina Goat Mineral helps overcome the variation in mineral content found in natural forage. Weather, soil type, and stage of maturity all affect the mineral content of natural forage that can in turn affect the health and growth of goats. Purina Goat Mineral is balanced to minimize the impact of this variability. By supplementing with Purina Goat Mineral, you ensure that goats get the consistent nutrition necessary to help them reach their full genetic potential. 
Features and benefits:  
Copper and Zinc- For supple skin and a healthy coat 
Calcium, Phosphorus, Magnesium, and Vit D- For strong bone and hoof development and excellent milk production 
Potassium, Sodium, Sulfur, Iron, Cobalt, Iodine and Manganese- For overall good health 
Vitamin E and Selenium- Antioxidants that help maintain a healthy immune system and strong muscle development 
Coarse Particle- Less waste and less dust
