It all depends on where you are located and hay testing is great BUT but BUT here ... you can test ten bales from ten acres and get ten different results.

For hay on a horse that can deal with it I LIKE alittle alfalfa 20 to 30% for the added lysine. Hill work and pole work is good for topline as well as backing but it all must be done properly working from the hindend to get the best results.

I perfer a ration balancer developed in the area you live.... Seminole for down South, Kent for the Midwest, LMF for the West Coast and Buckeye for the EAst coast...some local mills are now marketing them for that area as well.

Doess that make sense??

There is no alfalfa in my hay. It is all grass. (Seeded it myself so I know this.)

I do not know any feed places anywhere near me that sell Buckeye.
I am in NY.

Cori still has questions that need answering too.... I did not mean to take away from her questions.

Always, if I'm not mistaken, I *think* that Seminole and Buckeye are related somehow or another, so that might be why they don't have it up your way. There's also a feed store in the town I work at that sells Purina, but they have Buckeye also and they don't advertise for that. Maybe somewhere your way that sells Purina would have it?

Buckeye handles the Wellness line of Seminole.

I once asked my TSC if they could get me Triple Crown and they actually said they can order just about any type of feed but you have to buy a pallet if they special order it.

Really? Interesting.

That doesn't apply to me since Triple Crown is made by Southern States, and I can always buy directly from the source if I want TC, but I wasn't aware they'd sell to a direct competitor. I guess money talks, huh?

FP a pallet is at least 40 bags and when you are talking ration balancer and ONE horse that is a LONG time LOL since each bag last min of 35 days and max of 50 days

My TSC told me if I was interested in trying the Empower Balancer I could order it by the bag.... so I dunno
