Well rounded Grain?

Does this grain look like a good grain as far as nutrinal level. How do you find out how many calories per pound is in it?

The list of ingredients will tell you just as much, if not more , than this part of the label. Since lysine doesn't have to be on the feed label unless it is added, I'm guessing that the sources of protein in this feed might not be complete.

Do you mind me asking what you want to feed this to?

It might be OK- an ingredient list, or at least the % NSC, would be useful in making a real determination.

Oh, I totally forgot the question about calories. *embarassed* You should be able to contact the manufacturer by phone or email (email is usually easier) and ask. I used an ADM feed and I had to contact them. I really wish they would put it on the label.

Want to work out what your horse is getting & what they need, being able to input specific feeds, commercial or otherwise? I know I'm sounding like an ad but I really think feedXL.com is hard to beat! Certainly worth exploring.

Here is the ingredients list

Wheat middlings
Ground souybean hulls
Sun cured Alfalfa
Ground oat hulls
Cane molasses
Soybean oil
Dehulled soybean meal
Dried beet pulp
Stabilized rice bran
Calcium Carbonate
Vegetable oil
Ground corn
Whole ground flaxseed

And a bunch of other things. I wish it would list the calories per pound on the bag as well.

ETA: There's a reason loosie sounds like an ad, and that's because FeedXL is awesome! Thanks, loosie, for turning me on to it.
