If you already have a bag - just try it. It will work, just grain only sweet feed is much better.
I did use sweet feed with pellets. It fermented well and tasted not bad after run , but not so good as all grain.
But the main problem is sludge. So as soon as bought all grain sweetfeed, I abandoned my 2/3 full pelleted bag.

I just told them I was making some feed plots for wild game, and this is what someone recommended, so I did not want to get the wrong stuff. I am sure the girl at the checkout could probably care less, if I told her I was using it to make beer, which is actually true. We just happen to be making distiller's beer.

I sifted through this stuff, and it does have some chaff and stalk pieces, etc in it. It looks pretty clean though in its raw form. If I was starving, I could probably boil some up and eat it like hot cereal, after I picked the stalks and chaff out. A little crunchy maybe.

I just did a search in the other forums, and the Producer's Pride sweet feed that they were recommending from Tractor Supply, looks like it is no longer carried. Both of the Producer's Pride feed I saw on the site was pellets!

When clicking on the link for it, it now goes to:
"Oops! Something happened with your request!
We were unable to process your request. Please try again. If the problem persists, please contact customer support."

I did a search on the Tractor Supply website, and this looks like what you would want to get for a sweet feed. Not sure how much more it was than P.P.:

http://www.tractorsupply.com/en/store/purinareg%3B-omolene-100reg%3B-active-pleasure-horse-feed-50-lb

•Provides 100% of the required vitamins and minerals
•Nutrient and calorie dense blend of natural whole grains for lower feeding rates and less risk of digestive upset
•Whole grains are a natural source of antioxidants, phytonutrients and fiber
•Contains a unique blend of molasses and soy oil for a higher fat, low sugar molasses that horses love to eat
•Contains balanced nutrition and added vegetable oils for a shinier, healthier hair coat, skin and hooves
•Hay Or Pasture - designed to be fed with hay and/or pasture

•Animal Type - Horse
•Life Stage - Adults & Mature Adults
•Package Size - 50 lb.
•Type - Grain
•Brand - Purina®


That bolded item above would be the only thing listed above that would be of any concern.


If you can't find something similar, basically, from what I have read, sweet feed mix is basically CORN, OATS, BARLEY (COB) and molasses. Maybe you can find somewhere you can buy the grains/molasses seperately and make your own sweet feed!

I cannot seem to find Producers Pride all grain sweet feed in any tractor supply or online. I did however find that Blue Seal Feeds makes a all grain feed from Corn, Barley and oats

Pacer™ is a high-fat, fully fortified blend of oats, flaked
corn, and flaked barley wrapped in molasses and
vegetable oil for excellent acceptance and palatability.
Pacer™ is an excellent all-around sweet feed for active
horses.

There are NO PELLETS in this feed. This would be acceptable to use, correct??

Just went to TSC yesterday and got a bag without looking and when I got it home saw it was pellets :( . But I am running UJSSM and don't see much difference - corn, sugar. If I want molasses I can just throw some in - so will just stay with UJSSM.

If you go to Tractor Supply, I believe this is what you want.

+1 on this.
Here in CT, this had to be special ordered which I did.
It's all grain no pellets.
For some reason there was a little oily residue on the surface of the wash.
First wash with this completed the other day, have not run it yet.
I left the grain whole.
My next wash the grain will be milled to see if there is any difference.
Thanks, Ken

Hell I eat it for breakfast since the doctor told me all store bought processes cereal had too much sugar in it for my needs. Hey, as a side benefit it has plenty of fiber and will help clean you out. Onlyist problem is it makes me piss like a horse on a flat rock and sometimes without reason I sound off like a pissed of jackass! So in essance, I see no change in my behavior because of it and it is a hell of a lot cheaper than Kellogs Frosted Flakes! :ebiggrin:

How do you plan to mill it? I wouldn't put sweetfeed through my mill. I wouldn't want to have to clean the molasses funk out of it.

The girl at the tack store where I buy sweet feed ordered me a five gallon bucket of molasses for $18.

Hi KDS111
Did you do a milled grain yet? Was there a difference :?:
