- Feed 10 pounds per animal per day to adult elephants with 90 pounds of hay.
- Offer hay and/or browse at a level to provide the remainder of the diet. Animals generally should be fed 1-3% of body weight per day.
- The amount of diet the animal requires will vary according to its species, age, size, life stage, health status and activity of the animal and the environmental temperature.
- If supplemental vitamin E is desired, we recommend the use of Emcelle® Tocopherol (0010111), a micellized, water-dispersible vitamin E solution. The recommended usage of Emcelle® Tocopherol is 2-6 IU per kg body weight. Emcelle® should be provided as a top dressing to the dry portion of the diet or may be provided 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.
