Bran - Animal Feed

Animal Feed

Bran is widely used as a major component in foods for cattle, American bison, goats, rabbits, guinea pigs, etc.

Rice bran is sometimes fed to horses for its nutritional value, particularly as a plant-based fat supplement. It is considered an excellent way to put weight onto a thin horse, without the problems associated with overfeeding grain. Rice bran is also included in some foods for aging dogs.

Wheat bran is fed to horses in the form of a warm porridge or "mash." Bran mash is considered an excellent way to get the horse to drink more water. It is also indicated for its laxative qualities.
