How to Store Bagged Horse Feed

Cameron Jensen - Tuesday, October 25, 2016

Feeding spoiled horse feed can have devastating consequences. In this article, we share some useful tips for safe feed storage to ensure your horse receives the full benefits from fresh commercial horse feeds.

1. Keep horse feed out of the elements

To ensure bagged horse feed remains fresh, safe and nutritious, store all horse feed in a shed, tack room or enclosed storage area, out of reach of horses and protected from direct sunlight, high temperatures and damp conditions.

It’s also best to keep bagged horse feed off the ground. Using pallets or pest-proof containers, your horse feed will remain free from moisture, and hopefully safe from insects and rodents. If a rodent chews through the container, discard all horse feed and start over with a more robust container.

2. Don’t mix new and old horse feed

If placing bagged horse feed into a pre-used storage container, ensure it has been properly cleaned. Old, mouldy horse feed will taint your new feed, potentially harming your horse. Likewise, a proper rinse will help rid the container of any hidden nasties, such as dead insects or rodents.

In addition, try to use up your horse feed within 45-60 days of purchase. If, at any time, the feed looks or smells unusual, or your horse refuses to eat it, be cautious and consult the manufacturer about how fresh the feed is before disposing of it or requesting a refund.

3. Learn to recognise signs of spoiled horse feed

When inspecting bagged horse feed and hay, the common signs of spoiled feed are:

  • Changes in texture
  • Changes in colour
  • Presence of dust
  • Fruity or rancid smell
  • Insects, including droppings
  • Animal droppings
