What You Need to Know About Horse Feed Tags

Horse Feed TagsKnowing what horse feed tags tell you about the nutritional value of the feed can be very intimidating not to mention hard to understand. You literally would need to have some knowledge about horse nutrient requirements to have some idea of what to look for on these tags. By law these tags are required to be on every horse feed bag. Tags allow for horse owners to make comparisons between brands. Knowing how to decipher what’s on these feed tags can mean the difference in your horse’s future health and growth.

The Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) monitor and regulate these feed tags.

Horse feed tags usually contain the following information:

  • Product name and weight
  • Type of horse for that feed (adult vs. young horse)
  • Guaranteed analysis of certain nutrients
  • Ingredient list
  • Feeding directions

There are many other important key information that feed tags are not able to provide. Information such as feed recipe, quality of nutrients, quality control standards, the guarantee of nutrients, and research behind the feed is some information that may not be provided on tags. This makes for a difficult decision on which brand to choose and makes for an uninformed horse feed buyer.
