There are an awful lot of bugs in this feed. I talked to my dealer and they ordered fresh but they said that they called Purina who says its normal...there are WAY too many bugs for my comfort. When I dump it into a bucket, wait a few minutes, the walls of the bucket are covered with them.
Just wondering if I'm being too picky for my lil buddies.

When our former feed store sold me Purina feed with bugs it was due to them and their filthy dirty storeroom and also their lack of sales. The feed with bugs was old and had been sitting there for months.
Congrats to Katy!

You are NOT being too fussy about what your feed to your horse. Absolutely do not give her buggy feed to eat.
I hope that your feed store has agreed to replace the bug-infested bag(s) of feed?

I found a way to deal with it, if its not too many.. when I cant take it back.
I pour it out in a thin layer on a large flat metal tray on a hot sunny day, and let it toast in the hot sun real good.
The grain bugs we get here, only thrive in cool conditions, and will die very quickly when exposed this way.
