A salt based / bentonite block designed for lush green pastures. Bentonite used as a ruminant pasture supplement, has been advocated by many as a natural rumen protozoal controlling agent. The elimination of populations of rumen protozoa in sheep and cattle allows increased production of rumen bacteria and rumen fungi, which in turn increases rumen digestive efficiency. Protozoal populations are known to strip protein from the digestive system, which in turn drops ruminant productivity.
