    I can't say for sure but, if you received it for free, why risk it?

    Just go down to the feed store and get a bag of mix-n-fine feed salt.

    im getting answers from ones who don't have a clue if this salt can be used. If anyone knows if trace mineral salt can be used i would appreciate it.

    Sure it can be used. For it's intended purpose.....It's for livestock with extra added minerals, hence the name. For tanning, no, I wouldn't touch it unless I wanted that nice red color to my hides.

    Put it out for the deer, cows or trash man and buy some fine white granulated..

    ..and what makes you think you're getting advice from the clueless when you're clueless?

    It looks like you are digging a hole, you have been given some pretty good advise about not using the salt

    Come in like an ignorant puke and you'll eventually come back with your hat in your hand...

    You got your yes/no answer.

    Please look up the definition of tithe..

    So you give 1/100th of your income to the church....

    How does God spend your money?
     
  14. Hey Leroy, the salt 'would' work but would also stain your hides. It would just be best if you went and bought some fine white mixing salt at the store. Maybe use the gifted salt for ice melt this winter.

    I personally don't give two bags of rat crap how much money you give, to anyone. I was trying to steer you in the right direction but I see the error in my ways now, thanks to you. I should not try to help guide those with less experience than myself.

    If you must know, God spends my money to help the children the Methodist Childrens Home were i send it.
    I allready got a bag of salt, someone said he gets it for under 5 bucks, cheapest ive seen is 9.89 and up. in Fl. salt may be cheaper were they need it to melt ice and have so much of it stocked up, move to florida and enjoy sunshine

    I stock up on the 1lb salt canisters from the supermarket - non-iodized for $0.57. I hope that's the right kind. I've looked around and have heard that non- and iodized are ok.

    The checker lady looks at me funny every time I come through with ten canisters of salt. I figure it's easier to use those than to get a huge bag that might get damp (it's damp where I live).

    Tell the checkout lady that this is the best salt you've ever tasted. Can't get enough of it. Then come back and tell us how it went ;D

    I wish I could get salt as cheap as Rich. I pay about $13 for a 25 lb. bag.
