Information from Our Horse Experts
Animal experts at the Purina Animal Nutrition Center share their knowledge about horses.
Are oats cheaper to feed than a high-quality complete horse feed, such as Purina® Omolene #500® horse feed?
In many cases, when you consider the cost of oats, feeding Omolene #500® horse feed is not only more nutritionally accurate; it is also usually less expensive if you add in the cost of the supplements you would need to try and provide the nutrition missing from oats alone. When you consider the amount you have to feed to maintain good condition and sustain a level of work, it would take 27 percent less Omolene #500® horse feed than whole oats and the necessary supplements.
