We are MBA students trying to do a survey on horse feed. The survey takes about 10 minutes to complete and all responses are completely anonymous. The information collected is strictly for our use in a project. We would really appreciate you taking the time to participate.
Feel free to post additional comments/feedback in this thread. Any information is helpful!
I took it. Kind of limited, and not sure why you're so focused on FL, since it's a University of KY study.
It's for a comparison study. Thank you for participating!!
I took it as well and thought the same thing as SpeedRacer..
I took the survey but here's my complaint about it:
No place for additional comments.
Mine would be, when are these major feed purveryors going to get off their duffs and start making a soy-free AND grain-free product?
If EquiPride and McCauley Feeds can do it, so can everyone else. I really don't want to hear the words "too expensive".
There's been an explosion of horses with metabolic issues yet none of these companys (including Triple Crown) choose to do what they really need to do and that is eliminate soy and grain/grain by-products.
They like to tout they make feeds for these types of horses but not when one reads the ingredients list --- that is IF the company has the courage to put their ingredients list on the bag.
The protein source for all these feeds is soy, unless the bag says "soy-free".
Those of us with metabolic horses are weary of trying to find something they can eat without having to stand at the stove and cook for them, so-to-speak.
I live in a very horsey state and I'm constantly complaining that I've never seen such a limited, piss poor selection of feed and tack. I would LOVE to see a feed store with large variety and good show tack come to town.
Could you please elaborate on limited? We tried to eliminate non-response by keeping the survey as brief as possible. Is there anything you felt as though the survey should be asking you?
This feedback is great! The survey is meant to measure numbers. We really appreciate all additional feedback being put into the thread.
I would add a response section on what exactly different owners are looking for in a feed, what they aren't wanting in the feed, and what could be added. That's a big part of today's "feed" plan.. It's not a one bag fits all, there are very different horses out there that need very different things..There should be more a selection with different additives and ingredients in the feed.
So, my choices are very limited as to what I can buy, have never heard of most of the feeds on your survey.
