Would using mineral blocks or supplemental feed help?

Good nutrition and trace minerals such as copper, selenium, and zinc are known to be good for domestic animals, but they would not likely prevent or cure hoof disease in elk. Further, providing mineral blocks or supplemental feed could cause elk to congregate at higher densities, promoting conditions that facilitate transmission of the disease and making otherwise healthy elk vulnerable.
