Do your feed handling practices change in hot summer months? Heat and humidity can lead to moldy, unsafe feed. Here are some things to consider to keep your feed fresh and your horse healthy. 1. Don't buy more than 10-14 days' worth of feed 2. If you use plastic or metal storage containers be sure to clean them out thoroughly between batches of feed. 3. Store your feed in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight. 4. Stack feed in smaller stacks with room between them to allow air circulation to keep feed temperatures cooler. 5. Don't leave shrink wrap on your feed - this can trap heat.
