Default Found Everything Needed For Mineral Site

So I have plenty of Lucky Buck, but wanted to make my own mineral lick, the products needed could be found locally but not dicalcium phosphate, I contacted many local places with failure, so I was going to goto Tractor Supply and see if they could order dicalcium phosphate the other products they have. This morning a feed/grain store in PA replied to my email that they have all the products in stock. I drove the 45 min drive to get it, and decided to double my order when they worker told me dicalcium phosphate isn't impossible to get, it just could take weeks. I will add to my mix about a quart of Lucky Buck for scent/flavor......I will put it out next week, as I already have a bucket of Lucky Buck out since this past Thursday

So what I got was:

100 lbs of dicalcium phosphate

200 lbs of Trace Mineral

200 lbs of Stock Salt

Total was $115.00
