It's a 14% grower blend
14% crude protein
3% crude fat
28% crude fiber
.50% calcium
.30% phosphorus
1% phosphorus
ummm I don't think that was his question


Oh well..what the heck...got a lot of fiber which in a mix like this means "Filler" to me. Don't expect too much out of them. As someone said, add corn, will dilute the crude protein but increase the energy increasing potential for weight gain. Almost any high fiber feed sold in a bag is little more than a maintenance feed.
