You only feed 1-2 lbs a day of an RB, total. And they are more dense than most pelleted feeds, so you'll need to weigh a scoop of it to make sure you're feeding the right amount. Most horses do well on 1-1.5 lbs a day.

A bag of RB usually costs $25-40 a bag, depending on the brand. But, since you're feeding much less, it ends up being about the same cost or less per-day than regular feeds.

your 11% feed looks to be a left over mix... meaning what they couldn't or didn't use in other mixes they threw in together to make a feed...
