Feeding Directions

Best Results
Feed to Deer, Elk and Exotic Deer as a complete feed for whitetail deer, mule deer and exotic deer in confinement. It can also be fed to free-ranging animals when forage in the native habitat may be limited. For best results feed free choice in a covered trough or self-feeder. It is usually not necessary to feed hay free-choice with this product. If behavioral problems are evident, feed about 0.25 pounds of hay per 100 pounds of body weight three times per week. Can be fed free-choice as a creep feed to fawns. Target consumption should be about one pound per 100 pounds of body weight until weaning. Can be used as a complete weaning ration for fawns. Feed free-choice along with good quality hay after weaning. Once calves and fawns are eating pellets, feed hay only sparingly as described above for adults.
This feed contains added copper and should not be fed to sheep.  Store in a dry, well-ventilated area protected from rodents and insects. Do not feed moldy or insect-infested feed to animals as it may cause illness, performance loss or death. USE ONLY AS DIRECTED.
Regulations for the feeding of game animals vary from state to state. Check with your State Game and Fish Department or the Department of Natural Resources for guidelines on the proper use of this product.
Management Practices
  1. A feeding program is only as effective as the management practices. Actual results can vary depending upon feed intake, environmental conditions, and the quality of the management practices.
  2. Provide a source of fresh, clean water at all times.
  3. Provide salt free-choice.
  4. When changing rations, the change should be mad gradually increasing the amount of new feed and decreasing the amount of the old feed over a period of 7-10 days.
  5. Consult your veterinarian for recommended herd health and parasite control programs.
