    I only can find the percentage of nutrients as opposed to the list of ingredients. Thanks!!

    That's the site I went to before, but I can't find an ingredient's list there. Yesterday, I emailed them, but they haven't gotten back to me. I would just go to the feed store to look at the bag, but it's pretty far.

    I saw that. That's the nutritional content. I was looking for an ingredients list, like corn, wheat, alfalfa, or whatever.

    You will NOT find a list of ingredients. They have decided it is cheaper to go with whatever is on hand and supplement all the feeds to reach the labeled %. You have no guarantee anymore you are even feeding close to the same grain one mill from another..... [​IMG]

    A real bummer if you have a sensitive horse. The only way you will know what you have in your feed is to get your own mixed or pay more for a different local brand.
