I was trying to compare __________ mineral bag salt with your RED CAL bag salt. What's the reason for the price difference. I am trying to decide if I should change to your line of products so I'm doing a lot of comparisons. Also comparing the Joint and Hoof supplements to the ________________ ones I am currently using.
There is nothing like our RED CAL and thousands have found this to be true through the years. I don't know how deep you've ventured into our sites and other online information but the www.WhatToFeedYourHorse.com is a good place to start especially if considering RED CAL. The "Salt Wise, Mineral Poor" and "Perfect Pastures" articles that are linked to from the WhatToFeed link as well as being in the Mag and Library has valuable info. Plus there's videos and audios.
I don't know about the cheaper product, but RED CAL is not bleached, kiln dried, heated, or altered with chemicals or pollutants like a lot of man made products. RED CAL is organic sea salt, colloidal trace minerals, calcium and herbs. It is balanced by nature, not by man. The pristine sea slat comes from the dessert that was once the ocean millions of years ago, the micro-nutrients are naturally chelated. I always say and believe that there's probably micro-nutrients that haven't even been discovered yet! I am so proud of this product and what it has meant to so many that provide it free-choice to their animals so they have all-they-want (need) all-the-time.
If considering RED CAL be sure to check out our new Field Formula version of BUG CHECK that also contains RED CAL and so much more natural goodness. Depending on what your desired feed is, this may be of interest to you. www.BuyBugCheck.com has this info.
I'm equally proud of all of our products including those you mention. They are just not me-too products, rather products that I put a lot of heart, soul and knowledge into. For this reason, I am comfortable in saying "Nothing else like it" for any of our products. If you give us a try I know you will see this too.
I hope this helps with your decisions. I appreciate you considering us when looking at what can be better for your horses.
Thanks for asking!
