    Bran question

    I have heard of rice bran and have used it myself. Recently some people at our barn have started using soy bran. This is suposed to be better than the rice bran. Has anyone used this or had any experience with it? I saw the tag and it said it had 42% protien, this seems um a bit excessive to me!

    That's a lot of protein(!) def. Wouldn't be good for warmbloods...they operate more on a 10% level :)

    It may say 42% protein, but what is the suggested serving size? The percentage is the amount in the recommended serving, it doesn't mean you are giving the horse a level of 42% protein in a daily feeding.

    You need to look at the total diet to determine what the total %'s are.
