Horses with metabolic problems actually react to iron in feeds and it causes them MORE issues.
Purina is successful because of advertising NOT research.
Take it as close minded if you like SEA but I have done my research
Holly I will look for the livestock feed violations pages again might take me a bit they can be tricky to find LOL
I too pointed out that there is an abundance of iron in forage BUT it is poorly absorbed...so just because it is in there doesn't mean the horse is utilizing it.
I respect your opinion but would have to disagree. Most successful companies would fail overtime if all they had was advertising and not the proven success to back it up. I worked for the company for 12 years and know what goes on at that research farm everyday, it's groundbreaking stuff and the company really does have the best interest of the animal in mind!
