Simple Salt Block Holder
On our ranch, we have cattle on multiple pastures and during summer we frequently move cattle to new pasture. Often the pastures our cattle graze on are being irrigated so there’s not a good dry place to put a salt block.
The best thing we’ve found for a quick and easy salt block holder is to use old tires on rims. The rims provide a “floor” that keeps the salt above the ground, and they can be easily moved from pasture to pasture on a 4-wheeler. Or we sometimes just leave the wheel in a pasture that we’ll be coming back to later and just take the block to another pasture.
This method not only keeps the salt block dry. It also keeps it in place on uneven ground where cattle might otherwise roll it around.
