Re: Custom Mix Suggestion

Hi Lisa,

I suggest going with the Senior since 20%NSC, while not overly high, will still promote more acid production than a feed with a lower NSC.

Dr. Getty

Thanks for the suggestion Vicky. But the Triple Crown Lite has a minimum of 515 ppm of iron. Still way too high for my situation, even though the feeding rate is only 2 lbs/day. And I don't think my barrel racing horses would maintain weight on this either.
