New Sport Horse Mix with Glucosamine and Chondroitin

30 09 2013

We have added G&C to our popular Sport Horse Mix. Horses in moderate work have a higher calorie and protein requirement and their bodies are subject to stresses that idle horses are not subjected to. EGM Sport Horse Mix with G&C supports the moderately working horse regardless of discipline. Energy levels in Sport Horse Mix with G&C are elevated through the use of fat from rice bran and copra meal not grain. This maintains a low nonstructural carbohydrate (NSC) level (<15%) and reduces the risk of hot and fizzy behavior often associated with elevated NSC. Copra meal provides cool energy from coconut oil a saturated fat. Additionally copra meal is high in the amino acid glutamine which helps support healing of gut tissue an important benefit for performance horses at greater risk of developing gastric ulcers.

As a complete feed EGM Sport Horse Mix with G&C is high fiber (28%) and is formulated to be fed without additional hay in the ration. Unlike hay, when fed as directed, Sport Horse Mix with G&C will provide your horse with all the necessary vitamins and minerals insuring a balanced mineral profile for health and performance. To support your horse’s hooves Sport Horse Mix with G&C provides biotin which research has shown will improve hoof health when used long term. Visit to find a dealer near you.

Different Hay Types

Here is a little insight about different hay types. Stable mix being one of them plus extras

Stable Mix in 10 Steps-updated

9 05 2013

To our valued customers and new customers, this is the process in which Stable Mix is made. Broken down into 10 steps.

Step 1: The various ingredients such as mixed hay, alfalfa hay, rice bran, soybean meal and almond hulls are weighed, inspected and unloaded in specified areas at Elk Grove Milling, Inc.

Step 2: Each product has a specific formula which is converted to a mix card. The foreman instructs his crew to mix the ingredients, except the hay, together based on the specific mix card, going in by volume and weight.

Step 3: The mix is then put into a hopper which is volumetrically controlled. The mix is metered at 45% into the product stream where it is blended with the required types of hay as they go through the grinder.

Step 4: From the grinder, the complete mix including hays, is airlifted to the top of the mill where it drops into the meal bin, it sits here until fed into the conditioner.

Step 5: In the conditioner steam is introduced to the product while it continues to be mixed.

Step 6: The product is then dropped into the front of the pellet mill. The product is dropped into the center of the die, which consist of one die and two roller shells. The rollers are stationary as the die revolves, forcing the feed through the die and creating small, soft, pellets.

Step 7: The pellets then drop out of the die and are placed onto the hot pellet super flow which takes them to the hot pellet elevator. They are then lifted up and dropped into the top of the cooler. The cooler cools the pellets from the bottom using ambient air. This removes some of the moisture and hardens the pellets.

Step 8: The cool, hard, pellets are then moved into a cleaner where broken pellets and fines are removed and sent back through the pelleting process.

Step 9: The final product is then moved to storage tanks for bagging, barreling or sent to tanks for bulk loads.

Step 10: Customers and orders come in and our crew packages the different products for purchase, shipment and delivery. The pellets are then ready to be fed to happy, healthy horses! YUM!

Feeding an endurance horse

5 02 2013

What I’m feeding is from Elk Grove Milling:

Look at the Stable Mix product – they have various versions of it, the regular, performance and a senior mix, and also with and without glucosamine/chondroitin. I have been using the senior mix at vet checks during rides and the regular Stable Mix the rest of the time. My horses love it and they have been thriving on it for close to two years now. Hopefully you can get it in your area or find it close enough to be worth the drive — if so, you could pick up a barrel (250#) or two at a time. I’ve recommended this feed to several friends this season who have all reported back having great success and are VERY happy with it. It will definitely help with getting weight back on your horses — I’ve not seen a horse yet that hasn’t thrived on it.

Elk Grove Milling Goes Green

Elk Grove Milling Goes Green

Elk Grove Milling, Inc. has made many improvements to better its facility and improve customer service. One of our biggest improvements was to install a Cogeneration Unit; which is powered by natural gas. The Co Gen unit produces all the electricity needed to run the entire plant. Another plus, the Co Gen unit provides steam, which the plant will use to dry the barrels after they have been power washed. This will help speed up the time it takes to get the barrels ready to fill. The Co Gen is completely self-contained. This will also give us the freedom in the summer to run without power restrictions and make sure your horse never runs out of Stable Mix products. Elk Grove Milling, Inc. continues to grow, improve production, manufacture the highest quality of horse feed and keep the environment green along the way.
