Hey everyone.

Does anyone know where you could purchase loose minerals & salt (premix) for swine? (Located in Ontario)
I have found the Sow premixes... but it tends to have too much excess minerals for growers.
(this is for pastured pigs)

Looking to do free choice, since I purchase my grains from local farmers (do not include any minerals in them)

Just can't seem to find any swine minerals except the 'sow mineral'

Thanks so much !

Careful, salt can kill pigs.

For minerals we use our soil or kelp. But we don't free feed the kelp due to the salt.
