Premium Oats, also known as Pony Oats, Racehorse Oats or Triple-Cleaned Oats

Oats destined to become Northern Elite Oats - Grade 1 are selected for good color, plumpness, large kernel size, heavy bushel weight, low moisture and low foreign material content. Only the highest quality oats are chosen for Northern Elite Oats - Grade 1.

Upon selection, oats are triple-cleaned, clipped and polished. An in-line dust extraction system further reduces the possibility of dust. At the customer’s request, a small amount of canola oil may be added to give the oat that extra special look. Special care is taken through all stages of processing to ensure a consistently high quality product. The end result is an exceptional quality oat product with uniformity.

Northern Elite Oat - Grade 1 is normally sold to horse owners as whole or crimped (rolled) oats in bags. However they are also available in bulk and mini bulk totes upon request.
