Himalayan Salt Lick


Salt has always been essential to animals for their general health.

New Zealand soils are low in sodium and selenium among other essential elements. What better way to enrich your animals need for salt by utilising the premium 100% Himalayan salt with the 84 minerals and trace elements your animal needs.

This Bio Gro certified Himalayan salt lick is an actual source of over 84 minerals and trace elements including Iodine, Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium, Zinc and Selenium that are essential for good health.

Horse Licking a Pressed Himalayan Salt BlockHimalayan salt licks in particular are 100% natural and pure forms of Mineral Salts, formed over 250 million years ago as a direct result of massive geological changes and earthquakes that trapped ancient oceans beneath the earth’s crust. These trapped oceans, over the course of roughly 250 million years, crystallised and formed Rock Salt and we have made this ancient rock salt available to supplement the varied dietary needs of living beings. Himalayan salt has a unique crystalline structure that makes it easy for your animals to absorb.

We source this completely natural product direct from the mines. The salt is crushed and pressed into conveniently sized blocks with a hole in the centre which you can thread a rope through and hang in the stables or on fences.

Himalayan salt licks allow for convenience using an animal’s ‘nutritional wisdom’ providing an all natural one stop solution to an animal’s requirements. They also have several benefits:

  • Reduces nervous animal behaviours
  • Decreases stressful behaviours such as constant licking, chewing on fences etc.
  • Strengthens immune system
  • Helps animals develop shiny and healthy coats
  • Helps harden the hooves of animals
  • Restores salt lost by animals via sweating in hot climates
  • Increase in the threshold at which animals/horses sweat with exercise
  • Reduces animal drowsiness
  • Increases feed intake
  • Increases animal weight
  • Increased farm efficiency and productivity

Cows Licking a Pressed Himalayan Salt BlockBecause these are pressed blocks, they are not as weather resistant as the natural salt rocks and we therefore recommend taking them indoors whenever you are expecting heavy or torrential rain.
