Peggy are the percentage numbers after the names the amount of nsc in each feed?

Peggysue 12-17-2008 12:48 AM

Yes they are

so if you have 25% NSC in a feed that is .25lbs per lb so if you are feeding say 6lbs (that is min on most feeds) you are feeding 1 1/2 lbs of sugars and starches in your "hard feed" or grain product ...

hotreddun 12-17-2008 05:14 PM

i'll never understand why all the senior feeds are some of the biggest "junk" foods when that group is most at risk for IR, Cushings and Founder.

Peggy maybe you should also list the NSC of plain grains...Ive heard straight corn is upwards of 75%?

Peggysue 12-17-2008 05:35 PM

OK but it will take me a bit ... I will go pull the latest numbers off of Dairyone or equinalytic(sp)

Peggysue 12-17-2008 05:50 PM

The following numbers are all from here http://www.equi-analytical.com/Commo...GetResults.asp

Shelled Corn 68% to 77% NSC
Oats 43% to 61%
Barley 51% to 67%
Beet Pulp 3% to 19%
Corn Glutten 15% to 30%
Distillers Dried Grains 3% to 17%
Soybean Meal 12% to 17%
ALfalfa pellets 6% to 13%
Alfalfa cubes 7% to 12%
Grass hay 8% to 17%
Alfalfa HAY 8% to 13%
Grass pasture 6% to 20%

I think I got most of them ifyou wanna know anything else just ask and I can TRY to find it LOL

What is the daily requirements for an average sized adult horse not under training but ridden regularly? Or do they not need any?

Daily requirements of what sugars and starches??

Most horses meet the daily requirements of glusose needed with hay and/or pasture there really is no NEED to supplement the sugars and starches UNLESS you have a racehorse or a horse in HEAVY HEAVY training...
