Information from Our Wildlife Experts

Animal experts at the Purina Animal Nutrition Center share their knowledge about wildlife.

How do deer and elk intake levels impact a nutrition plan?
Their daily intake levels change from winter to autumn. Daily dry matter intakes range from 1.5 percent of body weight in midwinter to more than 3.0 percent in summer and autumn. A key factor in this intake change is a shift in the metabolic rate. Deer, for example, have a high metabolic rate in the late spring to fall and a low metabolic rate in the winter. This is especially noticeable in the northern US.
