That being the case, it's actualy cheaper because you can feed much less of it to get the same results.
And besides that....
I've read the labels on vegetable oil and frankly, I don't know what some of the stuff that they put in there even is.
I do however, know what 100% corn oil is...It's corn oil.
2 cups sounds like an awfull lot though.
I've got this one Mare that I give it to by mixing it into her feed. I started her on 1/4 cup and worked my way up to 1/2 cup...2X daily. It took her about 4 months to gain everything she needed to gain...so now she's back to 1/4 cup at each feeding.
At any rate, just to answer your question.....
I get mine at my local Walmart.
The brand I buy is their GV-brand and it cost $2.69 for vegetable oil or $2.99 for corn oil.
Hope this helps.
Interesting about the calories. I didn't know that. But, when I buy the oil I do make sure I know what it is that's in it for sure. As for 2 cups being a lot, well, it seems to work for her, but she's over 17 hh. I know my friend is giving her gelding 2 cups and he's only 14 hh, but he is *very* thin and no one knows why. Also, the oil is really helping her with eating -- no choking at all which she was doing from time to time before.
Up here, I'm paying $6 to $8 for a 2 litre jug of oil. I wish I could get your prices!
