Magnesium lick recommendations

Can anyone recommend a magnesium lick for sheep please? I tried Beetlic last year but they mostly ignored it and it went manky in the rain! Thanks

Are you wanting the lick to try and avoid Grass Staggers?    If you have some pasture that's been shut up and growing slowly through the Winter the grass should be high enough in magnesium to keep the balance OK in the ewes.
