Long before it was fashionable, Modesto Milling began taking organic feed production seriously. The company gained its first organic certification from Oregon Tilth of Corvallis, Ore., in 1998, becoming the first organic grain processor in Central California. Ninety-nine percent of the ingredients the company uses are organic or naturally-mined products, and its horse feeds contain only the best organic oats, barley and alfalfa, as well as organic coconut meal that are high in digestible fiber and healthy fats to promote healthy coats. What are other difference-making ingredients? Well, they include organic peas for high-quality protein; flax seeds and sunflower seeds for the omega 3 and omega 6 fats; organic stabilized rice bran for its fat and low-starch content; supplements like natural vitamin E and biotin for healthy coats and hooves; plus additional quality ingredients like diatomaceous earth, zeolite, yeast, sea kelp and other essential nutrients. The essential oils and herbs give the products a unique flavor that horses enjoy.
