Choosing the right feed for your horse - Part 3 Reading Feed Labels

September 2012 by Mariette Van den Berg B.(Hons) MSc

To determine which type of horse feeds would best suit your horses and your budget, you need to carefully read the feed label. 

In this final part of the series on choosing the right feed for your horse nutritionist Mariette van den Berg explains the general aspects of commercial feed labels and how to interpret the feed ingredients, constituents and guidelines.

Although manufacturers use different labelling designs for their products, the information on the labels must comply with the Australian standard guidelines for stock feed labelling.
