Cobalt for lambs

    Have a small few lambs that have very bad thrive, 32kgs while there comrades over 50, have dosed a few weeks ago and are not dirty. Have scaley ears so think its lacking in cobalt. Gave them ovigold drench about 2 months ago and no great improvement when they went on to good grass, so gave it again yesterday. Read somewhere they need to get cobalt every 2 weeks and the ovigold says it can only be given every 2 months. What are my options, as i only have a few dont want to have to buy a large amount thats expensive.
