Gross! What animal does the fat even come from? I was online on TSC and was thinking about getting that kind the other day but i looked at it and saw that and i was like 'uh nope.'

It's the same with dog food -- really watch what you're feeding your animals. Herbavores do not need animal products, for sure! And dogs don't need a lot of the junk they put in the cheaper stuff either.

Some probios also has animal products in it ... that's one reason I switched to using fresh garlic cloves and ACV in place of probios.

I mix my own. I Googled it first then went to the library read a few books; asked my vet etc. You can buy the good stuff & it definately works out cheaper plus i vary their mix. I.also mix different type when introducing my babies first time to grains :)

That's why I don't like pelleted feeds. The first ingredient is almost always Grain by-products. Not real grains. That's pretty nasty that they have animal fat in it... I would think that would be illegal... I know they can't put bone and meat meal in the feed, but I always thought it included ALL animal products.

Just as an FYI I was told by the manager at a TSC store that DuMor is made by Purina... so keep an eye on Purina products too.

I would stay far away from animal fats. Thats how you end up with diseases in your animals. Dumor is a cheap sucky feed anyway. Vegetable fats are fine for goats. Goats do best on a 4-5% plant based fat diet.

Wow, freaky since they don't even say the exact ingredients! Ew.

And TDG- you're awful :ROFL: now that that image is burned into my skull!
I can guarantee I have never subjected my goats to cosmetic surgery :slapfloor:

I dont know where you are but i just looked at the label on mine. It even says its animal free.
Well what bothers me is that it says "ruminant animal meat free". Not just animal free. Which could mean they use meats from animals that aren't cows, or goats, etc. Right? Which could be where the animal fat comes from. So maybe it's chicken fat? Or pig fat. Or if it's made in Mexico or Canada it could even be horse.
