    I can’t recommend this mineral buffet enough!! My goats have always had minerals available to them, but they didn’t consume very much and their coats were looking a little sad. I purchased this starter kit and they were gobbling up ALL the minerals!!! Their coats are so shiny now and I also noticed an increase in milk production!! I will never go back to the pre-mixed loose minerals for my herd. Thank you so much for making these minerals available in smaller sizes!!

    When I first started learning about mineral buffets, I only found 25 lb bags that would have been way too much for my seven animals (not to mention my budget). This starter kit was perfect cost and amount wise, but the best part has been the ability to run our sheep and goats together without worrying about one or the other getting too much or too little. Will definitely buy again from Little Avalon.

    I really appreciate how accessible this mineral system has been made. I couldn’t invest in the large bags/pallet but thanks to Megan and Little Avalon a small herd like mine has access to something so beneficial for the animals and inturn their stewards, and the land.
