Howdy....corn oil can be started at 1/4 cup per day, and increased by
about 1/8 cup per day until reaching the amount needed. Some horses
are very finicky, and may have to be started very low (1-2 T) and
increased over a longer period. A 1,200 lb horse on average can
easily tolerate 2 cups of oil per day, and some 3 day horses get 3-4
cups per day. Cheers,,Lynn
