processed mechanically. Up to 100 times the amount of rock salt has to be recovered, to get to the kings' salt, that is available to humans and animals now.

Regular salt licks consist of 99.9% sodium chloride with added minerals.
All kings' salt salt licks contain many natural minerals like iron and magnesium as well as a wealth of trace minerals in a composition that can easily be absorbed by your horse's body. Natural minerals in their pure state, unaltered and about 550 mio years old, this is what your animal needs.

Kings' salt salt licks are made from pure chrystalline salt and because of that they are free of the pollution you may find in today's oceans. Of course these "royal" salt licks are foodgrade quality and can be stored indefinitely as long as they are kept dry.
This Nature salt is very hard, therefore the animals cannot take a bite out of it, something that is easily possible with pressed salt licks.

It has been observed that animals tend to go to the kings' salt salt licks when given a choice. We deduct that animals still have a natural instinct that make them go to what is good for them.
All our salt licks are gathered and processed by hand. They may differ a bit in shape and colour. After the licks have been dried they are wrapped one by one in foil and then boxed. Of course there is no child labour involved.
Kings' salt salt licks have a high bio energetic energy. They are not manufactured by machines. They are the best quality salt you can find in their natural, unaltered state.

In comparison with industrially manufactured and pressed salt licks, the kings' salt salt licks handle humidity much better. Pressed salt licks crumble fast.

Hunters' tests showed that kings' salt salt licks could be stored in the open up to 10% longer than commercial salt licks.
Kings' salt salt licks have a hole drilled through and can be fastened with the cord we include in the shipping.

Deficiency Symptoms
Goats developed deficiency symptoms in 4 to 6 weeks after being fed a low-sodium diet (121). The deficiency symptoms included persistent licking, restlessness, dull shaggy hair, poor growth and intake of feed and marked emaciation during lactation. After 224 days, the deficient goats weighed 20% less than those supplemented with salt. They ate an average of 6% less feed per day and required 18.5% more feed per unit of gain.

Salt Helps Regulate Grazing
The 1981 Goat NRC committee stated "placing salt in less frequently grazed pastures may influence goats to move to these areas" (100). This principle is the same as that for cattle and sheep wherein the proper location of salt blocks or salt boxes can be used to help regulate grazing into less accessible range areas.

Salt Regulated Feed Intake
The 1981 Goat NRC committee (100) also states that "salt is often incorporated at high levels to regulate the free intake of nutritional supplements" This is similar to the practice followed with sheep and cattle, wherein, salt at levels of 10% to 50% is added to the feed as a means of limiting how much the animal consumes daily. However, plenty of water must be available to prevent harmful effects from the excess salt intake.

Salt Consumption
It is estimated that milking goats consume about 18 pounds of salt yearly. Meat goats and kids consume about 9 pounds and 4.5 pounds of salt, respectively. These are average figures and can vary due to many factors, as has been discussed for other animals. Heavy milk-producing goats would require higher levels of salt, since milk contains considerable sodium and chloride.

Salt Feed Recommendations
The 1981 Goat NRC committee states that "if goats are not provided salt free-choice, salt should be added to the feed. A recommended level would be 0.5% of the complete feed or proportionately higher levels in supplements" (100). It is recommended that 0.5% salt be added to the total diet or 1.0% salt to the concentrate portion of the diet. Goats on pasture should be self-fed salt in a mineral box.
