A sample format for a horse treat label is as follows:
PURPOSE STATEMENT & CLASS OF HORSE
(e.g. "A Treat for All Classes of Horses")
Crude Protein (minimum)......%*
Crude Fat (minimum)..........% *
Crude Fiber (maximum)........% *
(List the individual ingredients
in descending order of predominance.)
STATEMENT OF RESPONSIBILITY
(MANUFACTURER NAME & MAILING ADDRESS)
*Have your product(s) analyzed at a commercial feed laboratory to determine these values.
When you have the results of the laboratory assays on your product(s) for protein, fat, and fiber, I would recommend the actual values found be slightly altered so that the product(s) has no problems in meeting the guaranteed amounts. To do this, drop the % of protein and fat found by approximately .5-1% in order to allow for variance in the ingredients and to reach the minimum guarantees. Take the % of fiber found and increase this value .5-1% to enable the product(s) to make the maximum guarantee.
When you have a label(s) draft available, submit it with the Commercial Feed Registration Application , Small Package Distribution Report and appropriate fees.
Feel free to contact us should you have any questions.
