Commercially produced concentrates have simplified feeding programs for many horse owners. While some still choose to mix their own combination of grains, protein sources, and minerals, purchasing prepared concentrates has several benefits. Commercial concentrates can help manage feeding costs, reduce time and labor inputs at feeding, and decrease the risk of potential mixing errors compared to mix-it-yourself feeds. There are a variety of commercial concentrates available on the market today, so it is important to be able to read feed tags to determine the right feed for your particular horse or operation.
