Re: [RC] Animal products in senior feed - Carla Richardson

Does is say what these "animal products" are?  I would suspect either a bone meal or a fat source?  As to why -- probably they have a cheap source, and it could very well come from China or other Asian country.  So it increases their profit.  I'd avoid it like the ... well, plague!
I agree with Ed, I would not feed a herbivore such as a horse an "animal product."

There is a local feed store as well as Wal Mart who is selling a senior mix for horses that contains animal products.  I never heard of feeding this to horses???  Any comments as to why?  These feeds sell for under 9$ per 50# sack and are mostly wheat medlings as well as rice hull seeds.  There is grain hay as well as alfalfa.  The animal products are last of the list.
