Mule is eating the fence!!    (Posted Mon, Apr 29 '13 at 12:25 UTC)

What type of supplement should I get for our mule? He is eating/chewing on the wooden fence rails and post and anything else wooden that he can get his teeth into. I am sure he is needing something in his diet - just don;t know what.

Thanks for all your help - this is a wonderful website.

Do you have a salt block WITH minerals? When I was growing up in Minnesota in the 50's our neighbors would buy the white salt blocks for their cattle because they were 25 cents cheaper than the red salt blocks with minerals. We always bought the salt blocks with the minerals and the cattle could utilize their feed better and consequently gave more milk. It may be something as simple as that.

Another trick is to put Azomite in the feed. It only takes a little to be effective. Get it at Peaceful Valley.

Catering to the unique Ferndale perspective.

Thank you so much for your help, I will go out to our local CO-OP and get a mineral block tomorrow. I will also check out Peaceful Valley for the Azomite.

I really appreciate your help.
