Roasted To Perfection's uniqueness is evident the first time you open a bag, look, feel, and smell the feed. 

A balanced diet promotes a healthy, long lived, content horse that will be up to the task it is asked to perform.

Roasted to Perfection” started as an answer to some of the mold and mildew problems facing horse owners.

Other benefits quickly became apparent.

One is digestibility.  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 more balanced energy levels for the horse. Roasting reduces the amount of gastric acid needed to break down the food; the hard outer shell is removed from the digestive equation.

The volume of grain can be reduced because of the increased digestibility, rather than passing thru the horses system into the manure undigested.

Roasted grain is easy for any age horse to chew and digest, from foals to seniors with missing teeth. This is a safer way to feed because less grain decreases gastric upsets, ulcers and the chance of grain overload founder.

The biggest reason to roast is mold or mildew 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.  Some signs of mold in feed are:  dustiness, caking of feed, darkening of feed, poor feed flow out of bins, refusal to eat for no apparent reason, moldy or mildew smell.

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 corn or milo. Other grains should maintain moisture levels less than 13%.  Roasted grain has moisture levels at 10% or less.
