This morning, I mixed
- 1 cup of DE Dirt
- 1 cup of garlic powder
- 1/2 a cup of TURMERIC
- 1 tsp of black pepper
- 1 cup of molasses
- 1 cup of mineral and Vit blend from the store for sheep
- 1 cup of dried rose hips
- 1 cup of dried mixed nettles and Comfrey greens
- and 6 cups of milking blend feed
- Somewhere around one cup and bit of water..
- you want to mix your Molasses into the dry feed blend first, then add all your herbs and mix it though, then drizzle your water over top, just a bit at first and mix it though. let it sit a min or two to soak in and then try packing it into your measuring cup for portions, if it won’t pack tight, its to dry.. it should NOT be wet.. just moist enough to stick together well.
This was all mixed together and then large dose balls were created for the Big Adults and smaller dose balls were created for ewe’s
The critters love these, the only real issue is trying to make sure that bigger pushy girls don’t get extra dose’s trying to steal the less ranking girls “treat”
Sounds very healthy. Could something similar be used with an 80 lb dog? Where do you buy “mineral and Vit blend”? Can I buy it in Canada or is the US cheaper (I’m heading there tomorrow)? Thanks.
I would certainly use the DE dirt, the garlic, turmeric, a touch of black pepper, and the dried greens and I would replace the milking blend and the livestock constrate of the mineral and vit blend and replace it with 2 cups of quick oats and would use peanut butter if you can to mix it up the balls for the dogs.
I buy the Mineral and Vit Blend for the livestock from the coop store but the one I get they order in for me.
I would cut the amounts and make much smaller batch and even then would most likely freeze a portion of it because you would not want to give it all the time.
Thank Farm Gal — I’ll give it a try 🙂
