Just wondering how these tubs I've been using compare to the bigger brands. Pick them up local and been using them for a few years and cows seem to do ok on them. Keep them out year round, they get grass in summer and grass hay in winter and that's it. Other than some steer feed when I need to get them in. I know some will say loose minerals are better and tubs are too expensive but at the moment I'm not really interested in switching from tubs due to convenience. Just wondering if I'm lacking something somewhere, I put these out with a plain salt block at just under $100.

If you like it, feed it. At least you can get them locally but there are much higher quality tubs available.

I like the fact that they seem to be all natural protein and no urea in them. We use something similiar for the weaned heifers as a supplement when they are on pasture since we do not feed there regularly in the summer.
