In this video Gerhard, whilst recommending the use of Pat Coleby’s stock lick recipes, says that they should be offered individually. Also when putting out copper always have dolomite available too.
This is a clip from the Fast Track Your Farming Film: “Stock Supplements – Farmers Reveal Easy Ways To Keep Animals With Self Selected Minerals”. Stock have a natural instinctive ability to identify the minerals they are lacking, so all you need to do is present them with a range of minerals and they will choose what they need.
About this ‘Fast Track Your Farming’ Film:
For many years Hugo Disler has been making farmers aware of mineral stock supplementation for animals. He was an early on advocate of the ‘Pat Coleby lick’ and was one of few retailers in the 1970’s who supplied the basic ingredients for the lick. Animals instinctively know what is best for them, so why not let them choose? Free choice supplementation is, according to Hugo, the easiest, quickest and most cost effective way to maximise animal health.

Hello Helen, I run a small herd of black Angus cows and calves in Seville in the Yarra Valley. I am most interested to find out about Pat Colbey’s stock lick blocks/supplements as featured on the short video. Would you be able to put me in the right direction as to where I can get the information from for the recipes please.
I have one particular cow that just wont put weight on – she has a lovely shiny coat and is feeding her calf of (4 1/2 mths). They all have good quality pasture and hay suplements including lucerne. Could you advise please. Many thanks Fiona
