Rocky Mountain Elk cow low weight

We have a 7 yr old elk cow who gets skinny along her ribs all of the time, but especially in the spring. She is wormed regularly and is the only one in our herd with this issue. She is hay fed (horse hay) with regular grass grazing. They are also fed a corn/cattle feed mixture daily. Any suggestions on what could be causing this would be appreciated.

I would start by sending in a fecal sample to your vet, they’re cheap and can tell you if your worming program is working.
