Question Commodity pellets

Hello, This is a more broad question and I am new so I decided it would fit best in this catagory... umm.. but, I was just wondering If I could use "Commodity pellets" as a feed for my livestock (horses-pigs-chickens-pigeons).

The commodity pellets state that it can me used as multipurpose feed. I have browsed the internet and found that there are different types of commodity products made with different things, so I just really wanted to know if any one has experienced with this or know a bit about it. Thanks!

This is a link to the site and basically it does not have any pictures but it is all the way down the list, at the bottom of the page. It lists 12% protein : Shook Poultry's Feed Page

While horses and cattle are both livestock, they have different nutritional requirements. There is no one feed that can meet the nutrional needs for everything on the farm. There's a reason different feeds are made.

Also, some things that are put into chicken feeds can kill horses, and while it may not be in this feed, there were horses killed in 90's I think? But mill had ground chicken feed and then horse feed without cleaning everything out well.

Horse feed is best.
