What do you think of adding this to the diet of a horse that we are concerned with possible EMPS?
I copied and pasted entire ad.


Got Chickens, Pigs, Milk Goats? Hay Day Oil Co. of Madras is offering locally grown and pressed Safflower Meal. 16$ for a 45 Lbs. bag. This meal is the cereal that comes from a vegetable oil press. The safflower seeds are pressed for their oil which is about 1/3 of the seed weight, the other 2/3 is the meal. We can sell the meal at any weight increment, and we also offer it by the ton. Current customer feed back includes, milk goats producing more milk, and chicken's laying more eggs with harder shells. The pigs like it too. The safflower meal is high in Omega 3 and 6 Fatty acids and with consistent supplement of this meal in their diet, you will be provided with Omega Eggs.

Feed Analysis results. 4.5% Moisture 27% Crude Protein 52% TDN I also have copies of the report with more info, if wanted.

Tami, for less than 16 dollars per 45 lbs you can buy a high quality, low NSC, balanced feed for horses suitable for horses suffering from PSSM (EMPS?).

Cost is the most common reason listed for not feeding safflower meal but according to KY extension it can be used. I have no personal experience with this however. As a feed stuff this would be considered primarily a high protein supplement of moderate energy content.
