As horse enthusiasts, Star Milling Co. is committed to continually updating our feed formulas as we research more about horses and their digestive needs. In the past, many horse feeds were made with high starch grains and “least cost” formulations which meant the feeds were changed depending on which grains were the cheapest. As we have learned, horses do best when fed a consistent diet. That is why Star Milling only produces fixed formulas, so our feed is always the same in every bag.
We noticed that horse owners were mixing their own concoctions which included beet pulp, rice bran, flax, vitamins and minerals without realizing this was not providing the balanced diet of vitamins and minerals a horse requires. Back in 2006, we discussed this concern with our consultant Dr. Robert E. Bray, an Equine Nutritionist. He shared our vision of a horse feed made with high-fiber, low starch horse feed ingredients that help the “integrity” of a horse’s gut. That sparked an idea and Integrity Horse Feed was born!
We vowed to make low-sugar and low-starch horse feed with high quality sources of beet pulp and soybean hulls as the primary ingredients, while maintaining an ingredient mix that is consistent in every bag. The philosophy stands to this day, which is why we are proud to provide horses with a high quality balanced diet.
As a family owned business, we focus all of our efforts on the quality of ingredients instead of worrying about corporate politics. Integrity Horse Feed is still family owned, with a personal commitment to quality and good manufacturing practices. We come to work every day with a mission: to make the best horse food possible, with integrity.
