Check my web page http://www.endurance.net/hollander it has this
months article on feeding fat. Also my book has a lot on fat feeding
information and feed rations. it does not seem to matter if it is animal or
vegetable fat just feed it, it is great and cut down on the grain that is
the source of problems.
