    One thing I don't like is they talk about the old standard of 1lb of concentrate per month of age, starting at 3 months. I think a great many youngsters do not *at all* need 8lb of feed by 8 months. I daresay that may be a reason there are weight issues - people have heard that recommendation for years and think that's how they must feed, then they have a fat baby and the problems that come with that

    I LOVE that they talk about the high glycemic index and its correlation to DOD issues
