    Dumor feed

    Does anyone know this brand? like it/hate it??
    I have been feeding my 9 yrd QH Dumor for a pleasure horse at 12%
    I aked my vet about it but she didn't know to much about the brand. He is getting high quality grass hay, and about 2 pounds a day of this given in two feedings. He also has free choice salt and mineral blocks in his stall, but is turned out 8-9 hours a day. He is only getting light work at the moment because I just recovered from a broken back, but his work will increase a bit more in the weeks to come (hard riding 3 days a week). The real question, and all I really want to know is if Dumor is good, but I figured I would give a little info to bais it on. Thanks!

    feed many different Dumor feeds, not just horse but to other animals as well. I have no complaints, it is high quality, pallatable and, all animals seem to do well on thier specific formulas.

    I just looked at the tags on this line of products. It appears to be of a common mid-line formulation used by many national brand feeds. However, because of its low price in comparison to other similar feeds, I would have to question the quality of the ingredients that go into it.

    Most people report that their horses seem to do well and look ok on this line of feed. However, at my friend's tack shop, we had a customer return to purchase a higher end of feed because after 6 months on Dumor (with grass pasture), she was complaining that her horses looked dull coated, one had rain rot and were lethargic. She noted a significant improvment in just 3 weeks on another brand.

    Talking Dumor feed

    Dumor feed is a line of feed made by purina mills and is sold only in tractor supply stores. They have come a long way and we sell a long line of their feeds from alpacas to horses to chickens with a lot of good results. of course with any feed you may have a case where an animal does not respond well with this feed just like any other feed. They have now come out with 3 new feeds to compare to strategy and omaline 100 and 200.they have equistages wich is a almost exact comparison to strategy except the fiber content is different by about 1%. which means nothing to a horse from ages 2 to 25. so encourage all to try the dumor line of feed. Dumor is made only because tractor supply company has a policy where they cannot carry a feed with a purina logo on it. If any of you have any questions regarding any dumor, kent, evergreen or blue seal feed please feel free to ask i deal with these companies on a daily basis.
    Thanks

    Hello skeeter, I am curious why TSC can't carry a feed with the Purina logo on it. If it has to do with recent quality issues I'm curious why they'd still carry a feed made by them but without the logo so that people are less likely to know the origin (Dumor, etc). IF that is the reason, that seems deceptive.

    Anyways, the reason I am on this thread is I'm trying to find a high quality feed that is readily available. My triple crown supplier closed down and I really need something that I can get a hold of!! I want high quality ingredients with consistency (not lowest cost formulations that change from time to time) and am willing to pay more. Can you shed some light on this for me since you deal with several companies/lines?

    I was curious about it too. It isn't cheap where I'm from with the senior brand costing around $17 for 50 pounds, but it is cheaper than our local feed store.
    Purina and almost all brands set up deals with feed stores, so no 2 feedstores in the same area can sell Purina. However, they can sell brands that are made by Purina and don't have the logo. If you own a feed store and want to sell Purina, they won't let you if another dealer also carries it.

    I'm new to this site and when I saw your request for a feed with high quality ingredients and consistency, I knew I had to answer, even though it's a year since you posted. Progressive Nutrition (www.prognutrition.com) is a line I have been using for about five years, and just started a business to sell about ten months ago. It has high quality ingredients, fixed formulas and a philosophy of "forage first - feed as little as necessary from the bag." Don't know where you are, but they have a dealer locator on their website. Good luck - I know you won't be disappointed with the results. My two horses eat only forage and their Diet Balancer - just 1-1/2 pounds a day, and they look and feel incredible.

    Yep I just learned the other day from the manager at Tractor Supply that there discontinuing the Dumor lines to carry just Purina. I had never known until then that the Dumor is Purina. They had all the Dumor less then half price to get it off the shelves to make room for Purina.

    Kent tends to be on every corner in TX and they are a sister company to Triple Crown and can order it for you but Kent has some great lines themselves.

    Yep, wouldn't you know that I just found the perfect Dumor feed for Reno that she loves. Then I pass by TSC today and see two signs. One says 'Purina'. The other says 'Nutrena'. I was really hoping they'd be keeping Dumor, but, just my luck right?
