Individual Methods for Feeding
Methods - Practices
The practices outlined in this section relate
to methods of food presentation that do not require the use of special materials or
devices. Scatter feeds, use of specific locations, and methods of ensuring that specific
animals receive required medications and dietary supplements are dealt with.
||Large areas of enclosure set aside
for grass, with areas fenced off to regenerate.
||Tapir, Antelope, Deer, Pygmy
||Provide natural food substrate for
grazing animals, allowing them to feed when they desire.
||Cheap and low maintenance method
||Animals evolved to feed on poor
food, for example, Reindeer, cannot deal with normal grass, as it is too rich, and will
become ill and even die.
||In spring, high levels of minerals
in fresh growth can cause "grass staggers", so early growth should be cut back.
Free range grazing only works well in large areas.
