He said store bought does not have enough iodine for feet because of concerns about iodine in diary milk, and not enough copper due to concerns about death wish sheep. We do see a few Simi x with red tinged hair coats. Some breeds just need more selenium. Multimin corrects in about 3 weeks if it is a concern.
I will double check for the recipe wts.. By volume into a 5 dollar 50# bag of plain mixing salt:
2 cans copper sulfate
1 can selenium
1/2 can of iodine
Seems like there should be some zinc in there too....
