    What does ETTS mean on feed labels?

    ETTS is usually added to the end of a name to imply a very small pellet: Rabbit FamilyETTS. That is all I can come up with.

    What was the "ETTS" used to reference, a nutrient level, an ingredient....?

    It is like a watermark on the feed label. It is lighter colored ink that you can read the ingrediens through. I buy crumbles rather than mash or pellets.

    That must be a marketing or advertising issue with your tag. The manner in which labels are designed is regulated under the AAFCO regulations and is very specific.

    What brand of feed are you using?

    That must be Purina's manner to distinguish a Medicated feed tag from a non-medicated feed.

    Also have it on another brand of feed.

    Non medicated and layer instead of starter.

    I noticed this morning that mine say "CHECKERS" on them. Never even noticed.
