Re: Total Equine Horse feed

Just wondering... since this is a steam extruded feed, I thought the extrusion process made it maxiumum digestibility of the ingrediants, including the corn. From their web site "The extruded starch is digested in the small intestine whereas most of raw or pelleted starch is digested in the ceacum or large intestine." This would make it a low NSC feed too, not? Could you explain? Thanks

And what do you think of the mineral profile in this feed? Seems rather low to me, but would be interested in hearing your opinion. This feed is a high seller in my area, although I am no longer feeding it.

Where are you from? Texas
