No one should ever feed GMO corn or canola products, but it is impossible to find non-GMO for horses

No GMOs!!!

my chickens won't eat GMO corn. What does that tell you?

Unlike our European neighbors this county is allowing widespread use of GMO crops. Proceed w caution

I will not feed GM ingredients so my options are very limited. Fortunately I have a fat pony.

Ummm, and my food too....

I'm confident that the scientists involved know what they are doing.

Many people don't even know our own food source has GE seeds

Would like to be able to get away from GMOs.

GMOs are shown to interfere with digestive and reproductive systems in animals obleged to eat them.

GMO feeds have "negatively" impacted my horses

Better living thru chemistry.

GM technology may tamper with nature. Do we know all the future risks?

GMO will kill us all.

If it isn't good enough for me, it's not good enough for him. Period.

I have taken my horses off all corn soy and beet pulp.

Big non issue, just don't feed meat to grazers like cowes and horses

1/23/2013 12:26:15 PM

I do't want GMO's in my horse or my food chain until there are more proven results on the safety

1/23/2013 12:12:16 PM

if you mess with nature, you up the chances of something down the chain being out of balance

1/23/2013 11:18:53 AM

GMO ingredients cause cancer in rats, why would we take a chance on an animal we love!

1/23/2013 9:42:22 AM

We are changing hay suppliers to get away from RoundUp ready alfalfa.

1/23/2013 9:27:12 AM

We should not be using them period!

Horse.com needs to define GMO and the possible threats or impacts on horse health.

I avoid buying American products to avoid GMO's.

1/22/2013 10:32:24 PM

GMO feed has been used in the US livestock industry and no negative effects have been seen

1/22/2013 8:26:11 PM

I would be horrified to think I had fed GMO's to my horse.

1/22/2013 8:23:17 PM

Done internships w/ USDA research teams. Not convinced GMOs are at all harmful.

1/22/2013 8:21:10 PM

It is very important to me, however I don't feed enough grain for me to worry about it

No, I don't want him eating GMOs, but nothing he currently eats contains them.

1/22/2013 3:34:05 PM

GMO's should be done away with. It causes many problems down the road that we have to pay for.
