Nutrena has come out with a new senior feed and since they offered a buy one, get one free offer (can't beat that!), I decided to buy it.
Nutrena: Products - Horses - SafeChoiceŽ - SafeChoice Senior
Has anyone tried it yet?
I am sort of confused on the NSC values of the new senior feed. My feed store had two versions.....with and without molasses. I bought one bag of each and they are sitting in the garage right now so I am not looking at the labels, but when I went to Nutrena's website I see no mention of a molasses vs. "dry" version. They simply list the NSC as 20%. I am "guessing" that is for the "dry" version, but I really have no idea since I can't find mention of the two versions on their website.
I guess I am hoping the molasses version will give it some nice flavor without being too high-energy.
About my horses- I have a 3 yr old and a 19 and 20 yr old. All are fed alfalfa hay and we have no pasture. They currently get Safechoice Original as a treat in very small quantities (1/2 lb for the youngster, 3/4 lbs for my easy keeper senior and 2 lbs for my other senior). So at those quantities I don't think the NSC will make a huge difference, I guess I am just curious more than anything else. I would like to know the NSC on the molasses vs. the "dry" version.
Hmm. I will have to take a better look at the bags later.
Does anyone have any experience with either version of this feed?
