Farmers Cooperative Association Feeds

FCA-logoWe proudly feed our horses feeds developed and formulated by Farmers Cooperative Association located in Frederick, MD. We have been using their feeds for over 10 years with fantastic success. Their variety of feed choices offers a customizable solution to your horses’ nutritional needs.

Farmers Cooperative takes pride in the consistent formula of their feed. It does not change based on the market price of the ingredients. By Chance Farm believes this is an important attribute to proper and safe feeding. Farmers Cooperative also blends their feeds regularly and date stamps each bag to ensure freshness. By Chance Farm does not feed a bag of grain to your horse that is over a few weeks old. Farmers Cooperative’s on staff nutritionist is constantly researching the latest nutritional guidelines which ensures that your horse is receiving the best product possible.

By Chance Farm offers the following Farmers Cooperative feeds as standard, but we will work with you and your horse’s dietary requirements if a different option is required.

Pelleted Feeds

  • Dietrich Pellet – Protein 12.0%, Fat 6.0%, Fiber 10.5%
  • Premium Senior – Protein 14.0%, Fat 8.0%, Fiber 17.0%

The Dietrich pellet is formulated for pleasure and light riding horses, or those horses who don’t need much more than the grass and hay they receive daily. The Premium Senior pellet is a softer pellet with a beet pulp base, excellent for older horses and any horse requiring a bit more protein and fat to match their workload.

Textured Feeds

  • Premium 10 Sweetfeed – Protein 10.0%, Fat 6.0%, Fiber 9.0%

Premium 10 sweetfeed is a great all around textured feed for those “picky eater” types that won’t eat pellets. We find that mixing a bit of this with either of our pellets is the best of both worlds.

Specialty Feeds

  • High Fat Low Carb – Protein 12.0%, Fat 20.0%, Fiber 19.0%

At By Chance Farm, we understand that some horses require a high performance diet based on their workload. The High Fat, Low Carb (HFLC) soft pellet fulfills that need. It provides enough energy without excess sugar for calm, long-lasting performance instead of the over-stimulated or “hot” result that some higher performance feeds can produce. This grain is also perfect for horses prone to metabolic issues including laminitis. We find that this is the perfect additive to any of our other grains when more fat and energy is needed in the horses’ diet.
