Rice meal is the covering (or bran) of the grains of rice which is removed during the preparation of rice for table purposes. Its analysis shows that it is particularly rich in fat and mineral matters, both of which are valuable food constituents, especially for young horses. It has practically the same nutritive ratio (1 to 6.1) as oats (p. 103), with three times more mineral matter, but a little less fibre, which can be amply supplied by hay or straw. I have no experience of rice meal in the feeding of horses. Mr. W. F. Shaw informs me that "in an agricultural district where oats command a good price, the more enlightened farmers sell their oats, and feed their farm horses on rice meal with chopped hay in a slightly damped state. These horses keep most excellent condition on the rice meal with a very small percentage of oats, and do not suffer from colic or other abdominal disorders, more frequently than the other farm horses of the same district which are fed exclusively on oats." These remarks from an experienced veterinary surgeon confirm the good opinion of rice meal which a study of its analysis would suggest.
