As far as your friend feeding a feed mixed at the feed store - we know a lot of people who do that for horses, sheep, goat or beef. It's cheaper, sometimes, and you can get the mix just right for what you need, instead of having to add & supplement on top of bagged feed. For example, our trainer used a special mix and it worked well for us while our horses were there, so we were interested in using the same thing and just told the feed store and they used the same "recipe." Same thing for our beef - we use what the rancher uses who sold us the beef. If you asked me, I wouldn't know today what was in it, but at the time we checked it all out and it was the perfect custom mix and now we just don't have to worry about it. With bagged feed, you pay more and you have to watch because they're always tweaking the commercial feed 'recipes'.
Especially for our beef, we're not wanting any additional chemicals in the meat we eventually will eat, so it's nice to know that we control what goes in their tummies.
