So I just got a job managing a farm. It's kind of a long story, but family friends of mine bought this huge facility and want me to run it. There are 44 stalls.
We hope to start boarding in July and so I need to get serious about picking a feed. Here are the requirements:
-First and foremost, it has to be avalible in bulk. Luckily, there is a place close that delivers a lot of Purina and Tribute feeds
-I don't want sweet feed. No matter what
-With the facility being so nice and board being a little bit expensive, I expect to attract more performance horses than backyard ones. I am sure there will be both, but if I had to guess I would lean more towards the performance side
-The owners will bale all of their own hay and the barn will get the best quality stuff. They have a ton of land and a lot of it varies, but it should be mostly timothy with some grass or alfalfa
I have had a lot of people suggest Tribute Kalm n Ez, but heard that is it an over-priced generic feed that is outrageously high in iron (not good for our area). So that kind of turned me away from it...
I currently feed Purina Health Edge and LOVE it. But, I have an older, easy keeper in light work. Not sure that it would be great for the high performance horses in our area. Therefore, my plan now is to go with strategy.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated :)
