purina feeds strategy

I posted this under another board, but I didn't quite get an answer. I just bought a bag of purina strategy for my boys, to my surprise it had whole corn pieces in it...I thought it was suppose to be a fully pelleted feed.

Im not sure I am crazy about it...I might go back to the equine senoir, but the vet said their was more calories in the strategy!

what are you trying to feed with it?
what type of horses: in work or pasture puffs
breed and body score would be helpful.
what are you feeding them now and why the switch to strategy?

There are many here who can help you.

good luck feel free to PM me :)

We have 2 feed stores, A purina dealer and a southen states. My X was friends with the purina clerk so thats what we got. I didnt know better so followed along for awhile.
I had constant problems with Purina, many of which were probably dealer issues.
Frequently having to return moldy food.
The final straw was unloading a bag and it felt kinda light. Now I imagine most people are nowhere near as anal as me, but I had a calibrated scale and weighed the bag. Came in at 40 lbs, Took it back. Was told some bags had arrived like that or got damaged in shipment and resewn. Umm but you sold it to me and charged me for 50lbs. Thats fraud dude. Get me another bag and good day to you I wont be back.

Thats when I discovered the nearly identical Southern states brand was 7 dollars a bag cheaper. yeh just made me even happier.

Yea I wanted to make sure is wasn't suppose to be there before I took it back to the feed store...

I guess that will be first on my list to do tomorrow. I think I will tell them I just want a bag of the senoir and pay the differnce :)
