Roasted To Perfection

"Intense" Horse Feed


Roasted To Perfection's uniqueness is evident

the first time you open a bag, look,

feel, and smell the feed.


Roasted To Perfection is nutritionally balanced,

it is a fixed ration, the same formula

the same ingredients,

batch after batch.


“Roasted to Perfection” started as an answer to some of the

mold and mildew problems facing horse owners. 

Other benefits quickly became apparent.


The greatest benefit of roasting is to control mold or mildew growth on the grain from harvest. High roasting temperatures kill mold and mildew spores before the grain is mixed with Vitamins, Minerals and bagged.  Mold growth reduces feed value.  When the horse refuses to eat for no apparent reason, the grain could have a moldy or mildew smell that we cannot detect.  

Roasting also has an advantage in speed of processing and produces a dry product that can be stored without deterioration due to moisture.  Mold germinates at temperatures as low as 45°F, with most rapid growth at 75° to 90°F. Mold requires humidity or moisture for germination, therefore, an upper limit of 14.5% moisture is recommended for stored grain, moisture levels less than 13% is optimal.


Roasted grain has moisture levels at 10% or less


Roasting increases product safety and shelf life


A Mycotoxin is a highly toxic by-product of mold growth in feed and on raw grain.  Mycotoxins are generated from the secondary metabolic processes which occur naturally in a variety of molds.  Prolonged cloudy, humid weather encourages production of the fusarium-based toxins.


Another major benefit is 91% digestibility


Roasted grain is easy for any age horse to chew and digest, from foals to seniors with missing teeth. A horse is a grazing animal with a small stomach, the food travels from the stomach to the intestine and cecum relatively fast. If the site of digestion takes place in the stomach, it is easier for the horse to process and utilize the grain, vitamins and minerals. Changing the site of absorption also means a more balanced energy level for the horse.


By Roasting, the hard outer shell is removed from the digestive equation.  This reduces the amount of gastric acid needed to break down the food.  Less gastric acid means the occurrence of stomach ulcers and body soreness can be greatly reduced.  Less grain also decreases the chance of grain-overload founder.  With the hard outer shell removed, less feed is passing through the horse and into the manure undigested.  Optimal digestibility also means the volume of grain fed can be reduced due to the increased absorption of the nutrients.


This is an all around safer way to feed your horse

Milo and Oats are NON GMO grains


When roasted, Milo becomes an incredibly efficient source of energy for horses.  By roasting the kernel, the hard outer shell is removed which allows easier and more efficient digestion.  After being roasted the Milo kernel looks like popcorn.  This process increases the surface area of the grain so digestive enzymes have better access to the nutritional portions of the grain.  At the same time, roasting gelatinizes the starches, increasing their digestibility. 


Roasted To Perfection uses heavy, roasted, crimped oats for optimal digestion and absorption of nutrients.  We use only cleaned oats for feed quality, and to reduce fire hazards in the roaster. 


Camelina has been used for thousands of years as a food for both humans and livestock.  Camelina is an ancient seed rich in Essential Fatty Acids, with an optimal blend of Omega 3:6:9's.  What makes Camelina even more special, it is one of the richest food sources of Vitamin E.  Camelina is a naturally stable product, no refrigeration is needed.


Soybeans are in the legume family, roasting the bean allows horses to eat them safety.  The oil stays in the bean so the horse has access to the oil naturally.  Soybean oil has 2.25 times more energy than that of carbohydrates and proteins, making a much more concentrated, yet safe energy source.    


Milo, Oats and Soybeans are mixed with balanced Vitamins, Minerals, Trace Minerals and other Nutritionally beneficial nutrients.  The inclusion of Camelina Meal naturally provides an almost perfect ratio of 2:1:2 of the Omega 3:6:9 Essential Fatty Acids.


                  Sources of Omega 3 Fatty Acids are


                                           lacking in the standard diet


Omega 3's are an important factor for the maintenance of connective tissue, supporting Ligaments and Tendons.  Omega 3 Fatty Acid can inhibit inflammation.  The dietary benefits of Omega 3 are extensive and profound,  ranging from supported Cardiovascular and Respiratory Health, Arthritic and Inflammation problems, facilitating Healthy Skin, Joint and Brain functions.  Camelina meal is an excellent source of Omega Fatty Acids's in livestock feed.  It generally contains 10 to 15% oil; close to 30% of that oil is Omega 3.


Testing will give you a much better view of how good your forage really is


Without testing your forage, there is no way to know if your animal is getting too much or too little.  Forages can vary considerably from year to year, even if it comes from the same field.  Appearances can also be deceiving; pretty hay may not always be the best.


A balanced diet promotes a healthy, long lived,

content horse that will be up to the task

it is asked to perform.
