Prepared feed

I was reading and came across a sentence that said:
"This is the amount often used to replace a higher sugar/starch "prepared" feed."
What does this mean? the only thing i can think of is that prepared food is already prepared versus you buying everything yourself and making a bucket up?
help lol

Depends on our horse, the older ones get 1/3 senior feed 1/4 rice meal stuff (weight builder) and our mix. The average aged ones get 1/2 our mix 1/2 Bonanza Tuff Horse, The yearling gets 1/2 Foal feed or omelene 300 and half our mix. We used to just use our own mix but rising grain prices have caused us to mix the tough horse into our grain mix (which is somewhere between omelene 200 and 300)

Our Mix

Component Amt
Alfalfa Pellets 200
Steamed Oats 200
Soy Bean Hull 100
Soy Bean Meal 65
Stm Rl Barley 50
Salt 4.25
Calcium 4
Di-Cal 3
Equine Supp 5
Veg Oil 10
Molasses 50
Totals (lb) 691.25

14.7% Protein 2.6% Fat 16.7% Fiber

I have this in excel you can adjust the amounts to get more protein Soy Bean Meal is great for protien but not that palatable and it is pricey, You may notice i do not like to feed them corn, the Barley is a happy medium between corn and grain.
