What Kind of Salt Block Do I Need?


“I was curious if we need to keep giving our horses trace mineral salt with selenium now that we feed them trifecta? If not, what do you recommend?”

Answer by Ph.D. Equine Nutritionist, Kelsey Johnson Nonella:
You just need to give them access to a plain white salt block. No need to spend the extra money on a trace mineral block because you are getting everything in Trifecta.
