yeah a waste of $30 having to wait till tomorrow for the feed rep to be at the feed store to see if I can get a refund or exchange.....


Anything that has a high fat content that is left where it is warm, has a tendency to lose quality, smell bad, sour, clump, etc. So if you had it
where it wasn't kept cool, they might not take it back. You have to be
careful with that stuff, sometimes there is a processing problem. You might
ask them about that.

My suggestion would to be get your horses wormed and remember, a supplement is a supplement, not a substiture. You are feeding them hay, right, or is your grass plentiful?

Check your pm's.
Good luck!

I worm every 3 months. Which I did as soon as they got home. I had just bought the bag and opened it when I got home, so it was already like that before I bought it.
Feeding brome hay and honey glo feed with beet pulp shreds mixed in.
I was wanting the supplement to put weight on fast so they would be ready for winter.....Yes, I feed all winter along with either Alfalfa or brome hay.
I have to feed hay all year ...no grass. With 5.33 inches of rain all year dont make a good pasture.
