Moving mineral feeders

I moved two groups of goats onto new pastures over the weekend. The Kawasaki Mule makes it easy to move the big mineral feeders; they hang perfectly over the tailgate. In a matter of minutes, the goats and their minerals were moved.

I prefer a high-magnesium cattle mineral this time of year with all the new grass and clover. There's no scientific evidence that I know of that says this type of mineral is better for goats, but I was raised with a cattle background. We always used high mag mineral during the spring green up to help prevent grass tetany.
