Old Fashioned Oats
Rolled oats are a nice addition to any homemade suet cake. Not only does adding oats add calcium, iron and magnesium to your birds suet treat but it also helps keep your homemade suet cake last longer during warmer weather. The oats will soak up the meat fats and hold the suet cake together better than if you did not add oats. Rolled oats are also a whole grain which is great for the birds to eat in the colder months. Try adding a couple spoonfuls to your next You Do It Suet® and see how your birds like it.
