Default Mineral?

I would like to start putting some mineral sites out and was wondering if anyone could tell me what to use? Is there stuff I can get and mix from my local co-op? Thank You!

We have always used loose trace mineral salt mixed with Di-Cal. Most ag stores should have it, about $14 for 100 pounds of mixture last time I bought some. Dig a hole about 3 feet diameter and a foot or so deep, pour in the mixture and dig in some dirt with it. A clay based soil seems to work best.

We don't bother digging a hole. we just find a depression in the soil, scratch it up with a rake,and fill the hole with 30-06 mineral supplement. I am looking for a recipe that we can use to mix with the storebought stuff, as it sure does draw them in. We let it run low in the fall and replenish it in the late winter.
