  • Mazuri® Grain-Free Hay Enhancer™ Supplement is designed as a concentrated supplement and not a complete feed. It should be fed at 5% of the daily diet to balance potential nutritional deficiencies created by feeding a hay-based diet to elephant and white rhinoceroses.
  • Elephant and white rhinoceroses typically eat between 1-3% of their body weight daily, though these amounts vary according to species, age, size, life stage, health status, activity of the animal and the environmental temperatures.
    • Example: A 10,000 lbs. elephant (4,545 kg) at maintenance eating 1% of their body weight daily will consume 100 lbs. (45.45k g) of food per day. 5 lbs. (2.27 kg) of the diet will consist of the supplement and the remaining 95 lbs. (43.18 kg) will be hay and/or browse.
  • If supplemental Vitamin E is desired, we recommend the use of Emcelle® Tocopherol (0010111), a miceliized, water-dispersible Vitamin E solution. The recommended usage of Emcelle® Tocopherol is 2-6 IU/kg body weight. Emcelle® should be provided as a top dressing the dry portion of the diet or may be added in drinking water. Supplemental vitamin E may be desired for the following reasons: Low plasma tocopherol levels (below 0.2 mg per dL), continual confinement feeding of animals, feeding poor quality, long-stored roughages, feeding milk replacers that contain tocopheryl-acetate, feeding high levels of polyunsaturated fatty acids.
  • Always provide animal with plenty of fresh, clean water.
