Message Title: feeder hay

Everybody has a different way of implementing their feed program. Personally, I do not use any molassas or other sugar products as over time it will serve to rot the teeth out of your elks mouth. What will happen is that they will lose their ability to ingest food, long before they have exceeded their life-span.
For my two cents, I would rather get less mileage out of my hay one winter.
Have you tried putting it in a hay-ring and "allow" them to eat the undesirable bits before you put more in? Sometimes this works.
