NSC percent

How do I calculate NSC percent? I see that some feeds put it on the bag or website but some don't : (

Well originally Equidae Coastal but they just pulled it and are reformulating so I am going to go with Integrity Lite Adult/Senior - low starch no molasses.

I am using Lite Adult. I started him on it tonight and since he was only getting 1/2 pound in the morning and 1/2 pound at night, I upped it to 2 pounds morning and night. "Up to 2/3 pound per 100 pounds of body weight", he is about 1200 pounds. I didn't want to completely shock him so I thought I would work him up to the 6 pounds a day it suggests. He is on a complete pellet Alfalfa/Bermuda by manchester feeds in AZ. They say no supplementation is required but I feel like he needs something besides his pellets, hence the integrity and he also gets biotin plus for his dry,flaky coat and hooves. I am fanatical about nutrition for my dogs and cats and now I am going to be with my pony : )

I don't think he is a hard keeper, he is a little and I mean just a tad underweight but he wasn't getting fed enough either now I come into the scene and he gets everything I think he needs. I have probably gotten a little carried away with his feed this is all new to me. He gets 14 pounds a day split in two feedings Manchester Feeds, Inc. He gets the 3/8 pellets.
