ASK Destrier : is copra good for weight gain?

ASK Destrier : is copra good for weight gain?
We use it a lot in New Zealand.
As soon as we took it off him he was fine, no bolting or anything
Copra sent my OTTB nuts, rearing bucking bolting etc.
Hello Hannah,

The Copra, in form of oil or meal is a primary material which is rich in fats, for incorporation in food is going to support gaining the weight.
A care should be exercised because essential fatty acids of this material are majoritary saturated fatty acids (omégas 6).
Its incorporation must be reasoned for not imbalance the ratio of Omega6/Omega3, guaranteeing the proper functioning of the organism.

Have a great day,

The Destrier Team
