Re: NSC%

Hi Cristine,

I hope you found the Easy Keeper teleseminar helpful. I don't think I addressed this specific issue of feeding less of a higher NSC feed to create an overall lower NSC diet (than if you were to feed more of a low NSC feed). But it's simply a matter of calculating the amount of sugar/starch you're feeding overall.

All the best,

Dang. Just when I was starting to feel cockey, that I understood this stuff. I am feeding the 3 lbs of lower % feed at two feedings.
My question is are you going to address this topic at thursday nights teleseminar?? I hope so. I have two easy-keepers and wouldn't miss this seminar for anything. Turned down a going-away party to listen!!
