Feeding helps animals survive and also bear healthy offspring.

With the arrival of winter, wild animals are facing difficult times. In severe frosts, animals suffer most of all not from the cold, but from hunger. Feeding with a sufficient amount of minerals and trace elements helps them to survive on their own, as well as to bear healthy offspring.

Employees of the State Environmental Center weekly lay out forage for feeding hares, roe deer and elk in the cold season on the territory of the TyNAO.

You don’t need to feed the animals too often. Otherwise, they will be lazy to get food on their own. In addition, top dressing should not replace the natural food base. It contains root crops, hay, oats, deciduous brooms, cabbage, carrots, beets and salt.

Who needs salt? It turns out that roe deer and moose need this feeding. They are herbivores. They eat moss, twigs, berries, grass, mushrooms. Such food does not contain the entire complex of necessary trace elements. Sodium, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus can be found in salt. Males need salt for the growth of horns, and females need salt for bearing strong offspring.

It is important to feed the animals correctly so as not to harm.
