How soon will I need to reorder?

Consumption varies greatly between herds and we've found it is not possible to anticipate which minerals a specific herd will need, but you'll find that many of these will not need to be reordered for quite some time.  We have users still using the same original minerals a year later because their goats consume hardly any.  You will find that you'll have about 5 or 6 top minerals you'll need to reorder fairly quickly but as your animals get into balance, they'll consume less and less, or switch to another few favorites as their needs change.

Is this safe for _______?

According to FCE, the mineral buffet is safe for all species which makes this system ideal for mixed species herds.  That's one of my favorite parts, not worrying if my sheep or goats are getting enough!

Super easy to order, love all the information on the website.

Won the Giveaway!

Everything was shipped and packaged perfectly! I have not used the minerals yet because I was not prepared with a mineral buffet station because I won the giveaway and did not purchase the buffet with my own money.

I am over the moon excited to get this project finished and give my animals the minerals they deserve!

awesome products

The shipping was quick, while I was really impatient! HA I set it up for our chickens and have to get new tubs for the horse and cow. The dog loves to get some of the chickens mineral as well. I am hoping it will help our laying hens with the molt and seasonal changes to their bodies this year. Cant wait to see the results on the calf and his growth.

My goats are loving the buffet!

I appreciate the personal attention from Little Avalon Farm, I feel I received a lot of value at a fair price to improve the health of my heard. Just as important as the minerals, vitamins, etc is the significant amount of education materials to assist goat owners. These people truly care about you and your goats
