Transitioning Feeds

This time of the year barns are filling up fast with new projects. Prior to bringing your new project home, make certain that you ask the seller what kind of feed the animal has been on. To transition to Show-Rite Feeds we recommend the following method for all species.

No matter what size of animal we are talking about, transitioning from one feed to another works best if done over a series of days. For example, we suggest doing feed changes over a period of 7 days. Start by mixing 3/4 of current ration to 1/4 of new feed, then on day 3 mix feed at a 50:50 ratio. Finally on day 5 you can go 3?4 of new feed to 1?4 of old ration and concluding on day 7 be on your next step or new ration.
