ok so i'm trying a new possibly healthier and cheaper approach to feeding my horses, we've decided to buy horse feed in major bulk. About 1000 pounds or possibly 1 ton a buy. For half a ton it's about 90 some dollars, at 1 ton it's about 198$'s, now that's great especially since we have plenty of places to store it, but my question is it a healthy and well balanced feed?
It's called Big M and it's a complete horse feed.
Protein.......... Not less than 12.00%
Fat............... Not less than 2.00%
Fiber............. Not more than 19.50%
Soya hulls, wheat midds, alfalfa meal, ground yellow corn, molasses, hominy feed, lignin sulfonate, calcium carbonate, salt, monocalcium and dicalcium phosphate, rice hulls, choline chloride, manganous oxide, zinc oxide, copper sulfate, ferrous sulfate, mineral oil, vitamin A acetate, Vitamin E supplement, d-activated animal sterol (source of D3), ethylenediamine dihydroiodide, calcium d-pantothenate, cobalt adione sodium bisulfite complex, Vitamin B-12 supplement, Calcium iodate, Folic acid.
I also believe it would be considered a pellet feed. It's not a sticky type feed so you can tell there isn't as much molasses in it as a normal sweet feed. It seems good to me, but I don't know much about feeds. What do you guys think?
