I have actually sat down and figured everything up for the calcium and phosphorus ration because I am wanting to change my feed up a bit and this is what I got. This includes the hay.
Enrich 32 Purina w/ Barley,Alfalfa, Beet Pulp 1.24
Enrich 32 Purina w/ Oats, Alfalfa, Beet Pulp 1.28
Triple Crown 30 w/ Barley, Alfalfa, Beet Pulp 1.47
Triple Crown 30 w/ Oats, Alfalfa, Beet Pulp 1.5
I know the ratio is suppose to be between 1.2-2 So I am leaning towards the Triple Crown 30 as an additive to the feed I mix. I am curious about trying barley insted of oats is why I compared the two. The Purina Enrich has Minimum 2.85% calcium to a Maximum 3.85% calcium, ratios are a little low to me because if I feed more hay then I added in then my ration drops because in orchard grass there is more phosphorus than calcium. So the Triple crown offers at Minimun 4% calcium to Maximum 5% calcium. So it would balance the ratio better to go with one with higher Calcium. TC has 1.5% phosphorus and Enrich has 1.6% phosphorus. Any feedback on using either of these feed would be greatly appreciated.
