Finally, a product for the deer manager that enjoys the cost savings of producing their own mineral mix, but is unhappy with the shortcomings of a livestock supplement (dicalcium phosphate) as a deer supplement. This mix includes balanced amounts calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, zinc, copper, and selenium which are typically deficient in many areas of the country, limiting antler growth and milk production.  Vitamins are included to aid in absorption of these minerals.  Why continue to use an incomplete mineral mix?  You must add your salt to get deer to consume it.  A simple 50/50 mix is usually adequate.  Our Premium Mineral Supplement is pre-mixed at 40% salt if you prefer a ready to use product.  Click here for tips on creating successful mineral sites and to understand the role of commonly deficient minerals in deer development.

The final analysis of your finished mix depends on the percentage of salt you choose to add.  Generally speaking, as you add more salt the attraction goes up.  Keep in mind that increasing salt levels will lower the concentration of the beneficial minerals. We recommend adding 25-60%  salt to ensure adequate consumption. 

Calcium and phosphorus ratios in the commonly used Dical are not what is the optimum for whitetail deer.  We include 10 other minerals necessary for antler growth, milk production, and higher forage comsumption.  Dical also contains no vitamins, meaning that any calcium and phosphorus that is consumed at a mineral site maintained with dical will not likely be absorbed. 

If you live in the South or the East, your native soils are lacking the high levels of minerals naturally found in the Midwestern states.  It is no accident that the vast majority of record book bucks come from a handful of states in the Midwest.  Our mineral supplementation program is a cost effective way to supplement what is naturally available in your neck of the woods.

For best results, use our Mineral Site Topper to refresh the site every 4-6 weeks throughout the summer.  You may use our Mineral Site Topper at any time during spring or summer when you wish to boost the attractiveness and refresh vitamins which will break down over time.
