Cattle grazing rangelands in many parts of the United States are commonly provided trace mineralized salt as a source of sodium and chloride.  The salt can be offered in a loose form or in the form of a block.  This practice can also be utilized to draw cattle to areas of the pasture which are underutilized by strategic placement of the salt blocks or mineral feeders.
