Equus did an article about protein levels a few months back. They said
that the top performers in Europe (3 day eventing, etc.) feed less than 10%
levels of protein and say that anything above that is not necessary. They
were shocked to see what we fed in this country when they came to the
Olympics the last time. In my area it is difficult to get a good balanced
feed that is less than 12%. I am currently working with Cornell to see if
we can come up with something that I can have custom made locally.
