We run around 115 momma cows and keep 6-10 bulls of various stages of development around and spend around $4-5K a year on mineral.
I need to keep free choice salt out as well to cut down on the mineral consumption but I've barely mastered the art of keeping mineral out.
Just my - my neighbor mixes salt in with his mineral, & I've been doing the same. Plus, keeps a salt block out also. We both use seasonal mineral from local co-op.
