Patricia asks about "sulfates in my horses diet"

is there such a thing as a sulfate lick or are there enough in your Red Cal to supply a horses needs?


Hi Patricia, hope all is great!

Our RED CAL is so much better.  It is actually minerals in essentially a natural chelation type. Attaching minerals to sulfates is better than most BUT having the minerals from the ancient sea beds that are still attached to organic material (plant material etc.) Is so much better than merely attaching them to sulfur. (Sulfates).

I hope this helps and thanks for asking!

3 Throw Away All Salt and Mineral Blocks…
Make RED CAL Available Free Choice At All Times!

Our Red Cal supplement is a formulation and combination of calcium, micronutrients and herbs to help keep your horse healthy.

It is fed "FREE CHOICE", so it’s easy. And although you let them eat all they want, it’s economical too!

*About a dollar-a-day (or less!)

*Typically a 25 lb bag will last from 100 – 200 days for one horse but will vary depending upon the individual needs. Buying our bulk packages will make your per-day, per-horse investment even less!

Did you know that salt & mineral quality varies greatly? Unlike most, RED-CAL™ is not bleached, kiln dried, heated, or altered with chemicals or pollutants, it’s balanced by nature, not by man.

The minerals utilized are the finest available, with detail especially to purity and absorption.

"Did you know that most commercial salt and minerals are either "man made" or some other industry's waste product? Unlike these, ours is not bleached, kiln dried, heated, or altered with chemicals or pollutants; it's balanced by nature not by man! Did you know that blocks for horse, and others for that matter, are almost useless and potentially dangerous!

They just can't get what they need, when they need it, fast enough by trying to lick or chew from a block! When the weather changes sudden imbalances in the grass can occur. Horses must be able to get what they need when they need it! Period! RED CAL is fed free-choice and loose, not in a block form. Just hang a bucket on a fence post and pour a little in it. Rain does not even diminish effectiveness.

You can expect stronger bones, muscles, ligaments and better performance regardless of discipline. We believe this is our finest product yet developed and your horse will prove it. It is OK to use along with any of our other products and for any horse, any age. Use year round for best results.

If you don't consider any other portion of our feeding program at this time, at the very least you should provide RED CAL free-choice for your horses. ~~~ Dr. Dan
