    A neighbor friend just gave me 3 bags @25KG each of chicken feed. Something called Novus, Next Enhance 500. The feed is in big paper bags with no other info on it.

    Has anyone heard of this feed?

    Shaggy that's a new one on me,and I was in the farm supply/feed business for several years. I did a google search and found www.novusint.com that gives some info on Next Enhance but nothing on "500". It seems from their site that what you have may be just additives/supplements for feed as that looks like their major product. Is there a tag that shows this to be an actual complete feed? You have me curious now!

    Good deal H&H. That was what I was looking for but only found the info for up to the Next 350 supplement. I must have overlooked it.

    I'm glad you found some info. Because the tag/label is just a plain white sticker on the brown bag. The only other thing it says is Mix Composite and there is lot number on each bag.
