Super Weight Gain for My HYPP Horse?
“The list of ingredients doesn’t include potassium- does that mean that there is none? I am a bit confused since the main ingredient is whole soybeans. I understand that soybean meal is high potassium yet soybean hulls are low in potassium. Where do we stand with super weight gain? I have an older HYPP horse with rare but severe episodes.”
Answer by Ph.D. Equine Nutritionist, Kelsey Johnson Nonella:
The list of ingredients is a list of feedstuffs in the formula….it is not a list of all nutrients… Super Weight Gain contains whole soybeans. Whole soybeans are the whole bean including the hull. Therefore, Super Weight Gain would only provide about 1.2 grams of potassium per day to the total ration.
