High Feed Prices Got You Down? Seminole Feed now Offers Feeds of Value and Performance

Ocala, FL - Seminole Feed is introducing 5 new horse feeds that offer consumers a better value without sacrificing the quality and performance of their feed.

With grain, oil and fuel prices at an all-time high, many consumers are looking to save money where they can – even in the feed room. However, in an effort to keep the price per bag lower, some feed companies are now including fillers such as peanut hulls or cotton seed hulls in their feeds. “We are seeing a rise in the usage of these poor quality ingredients in many feeds” states Jill Haight, director of marketing for Seminole Feed. “Unfortunately these ingredients are not well utilized by horses so the consumer spends more money in the long-run. Either the horses stop thriving as they once did, or horse owners find themselves increasing the quantity of feed to maintain their horse’s body condition.”

Seminole Feed uses only top-quality ingredients in these classic feeds. Recent trends in the horse feed industry, such as “high-fat” or the inclusion of “flax seed,” add significant costs to the feeds. While these additives are beneficial, most horses will thrive and perform well on more traditional blends. For horses that are “hard-keepers” a high-fat supplement such as Seminole Ultra Bloom® can be included in the diet.

Seminole Pro-Plus 12 is a classic oat-based formulation with added lysine for growing, breeding, pleasure and performance horses. This traditional feed is ideal for the professional horse operation. Seminole Pro-Plus 12 is available in a pellet or sweet feed.

Seminole Sweet Success is a textured feed with added beet pulp for performance and pleasure horses. Beet pulp & soybean hulls are highly digestible fiber sources and provide the needed calories for the working horse.

Seminole Mare & Foal is a 16% protein feed with added lysine for growth and is formulated with quality grains and digestible fibers. Seminole Mare & Foal is recommend for foals, weanlings, yearlings and late-gestation and lactating broodmares. Seminole Mare & Foal is available in a pellet or a sweet feed.

These new Seminole Feeds will be available mid-May of 2008.
