We have been raising elk for 15 years now and have never had a problem like you describe with calves and mineral or salt blocks. And we have used just about every type of mineral/salt block out there. We are currently sold on the SweetPro blocks and have been using them for 1 1/2 years now with very good results.
Like our friend from New Zealand who already responded to this question, elk are pretty smart and they will eat what they need...even calves. So do not worry about the salt...the mom's need it.
