WHAT IS THE PROPER WAY TO STORE FEED?

Performance Horse Nutrition

Both hay and grain are perishable and require proper storage to minimize losses in feeding value. Protecting feed from changes in moisture content and humidity are the most critical factors influencing the growth of mold.

A proper storage area allows plenty of ventilation, maintains feed at a cool, steady temperature with low humidity, protects feed from direct sunlight and exposure to the elements, and guards feed from animal, rodent, insect and bird contamination.
