Sea-90 Ocean Minerals for Livestock Management and Animal Husbandry
Sea-90 Ocean Minerals is the world’s leading, all-natural mineral and trace element salt. With all of nature’s minerals and trace elements in perfect balance, Sea-90 ensures your herd has the nutritional support it needs to thrive. Substitute Sea-90 in place of stocking salt and other “sea salts” to boost nutrition and hydration, and observe animal behavior to determine if additional mineral supplementation may be decreased as well. Often, Sea-90’s mineral and trace element content provides the necessary nutrients without additional input costs.
Sea-90 is also available with organic garlic for all-natural fly, flea, and tick control. Sea-90 Premium Mineral Salt and Sea-90 Premium Mineral Salt with Garlic are available loose and in ultra-durable, weather-proof blocks. For bulk orders and blocks, please visit our Distributors or Contact Us for a Freight Quote.
Loose Sea-90 minerals can be fed free choice or added to daily rations. Recommended daily quantities are below (for both Sea-90 Premium Mineral Salt and Premium Mineral Salt with Garlic); please be sure to always consult with your veterinarian on your animal’s needs:
Beef Cattle: 2 ounces per animal per day.
Dairy Cattle: 4 ounces per animal twice per day.
Smaller Ruminants: 1/2 ounce per animal per day.
For Dairy Cattle and other Milking Ruminants, we exclusively recommend our standard Sea-90.
Sea-90 is also the best sea salt to create a livestock brine tank, one of the most efficient ways to remineralize your herd. To create a brine tank, add approximately 20 - 25 lbs. of Sea-90 per 300 gallon tank. More information about livestock brine tanks can be found from Steve Campbell.
When beginning a Sea-90 program, it is common for mineral deficient animals to “gorge” with a higher-than-average consumption. This may occur for 1-3 weeks, as the animals remineralize themselves. Once re-balanced they’ll “back off” and daily consumption will return to standard levels.
