They are about 12% protien. I am trying to switch my goats over to as much whole grains as I can.

Oats are 12%. Not sure on corn. You don't want to feed A LOT of corn though.

No corn here for they boys. Girls either, only when its COLD and they need to keep body heat.

Oats are great!! They have tons on energy, and really boost growth and production. I gave them to my undersized doeling Chant for an extra boost and-BOOM! She shot up :D :) I would definitely feed them to everyone if I could!

Those look like alfalfa pellets, but I've never seen them labeled as horse pellets. Because of the way they are labeled, I wonder if stuff hasn't been added. As far as I know, pellets don't go by cuttings.

You will need to read the ingredient label. Alfalfa pellets should just say alfalfa for the ingredient list. It looks like there is a list of ingredients on those bags. But alfalfa pellets basically look like that.
