Food For Elephants

  

Yod Yeam enjoys a romp in his new farm                                              Food, food, food                      

Feeding over 90 elephants is very expensive. Our elephants have enjoyed eating the pineapple plant that we get trucked in from plantations down south. However with the rising cost of petrol transporting this food was becoming increasingly expensive. An opportunity arose to find an alternative method to feeding the elephants when Laithongrien got an offer to rent land cheaply only 2 kilometres away. Since February 2007, he has worked very hard developing growing grass and harvesting it for the elephants. The special grasses he is growing are very nutritious and the elephants love it. It is hoped to make the farm self sustaining so that he can create a living for the people farming the land and save money feeding the elephants. The income saved will then be able to go into other projects that will continually improve the lives of our elephants here.
