what are you feeding NOW an dhow much lbs wise??
To help PREVENT ulcers remove all grain products from diet allow free choice access to hay ...
The % really doesn't mean that much
6lbs of 12% is .72 lbs of protein
1lb of 32% is .32lbs of protein
Does that make sense??
So if you can feed LESS of a higher nutrition lower NSC feed you are better off then a feed with lower nutrition at higher feed levels
The form of the feed does not make it NOT sweet I ahve seen pellets thur the roof in sugars and starches and textured feeds fairly low...
Pellets are easier to digest then textured feeds
Extruded is the easiest of all IF you can find one...
I have been called the NSC Nazi more then once ... I hate traditional feed methods of loading our horses up on grains and junk food :)
