Default feeding high quality dry food with low quality wet?

i feed my farm cats high quality dry food (natural balance, instinct, chicken soup, blue buffalo, & kirkland) and low quality wet (friskies). the dry food i alternate i am planning on alternating every month as soon as i can get a few of the brands i listed. with getting 3 oz of the high quality dry food, do you think it is okay to feed a low quality wet food?

each cat eats 3 oz of dry and 3 oz of wet each day, and there are 26 cats in all.

Cool Quality of dry/wet food

Dunno, I also alternate, I used to give them Hill's (my favorite), Royal Canin, Whiskas, Choice, and just tried their 1st bag of Purina indoor. I have little knowledge on wet, but I only buy those brands/taste my cats will like, like Fancy Feast, SEEDS (Japanese Health In), AIXIA Platinum (which is the most expensive, so I rarely buy) , But I think, by giving them quality dry is nutritious enough for our cats, according to experts, giving wet is just like treats to them.

I also feed my kits with the two of them: they have their feeder with the dry food permanently & once a day, in the evenings the wet food. They are mad about treats but I give them occasionally.

Please, please tell me what you know, the brands name.. (I mean low quality ones with bad reputation or report, or even hazardous brands that might kill our furbabes) ? Do you mind to tell me for the sake of our kitty's health ? As for me, I'd rather decide on their behalf if health is the issue.

I've seen people come to virtual blows over the pet food issue. In another forum I visit there is a member who scorns all commercial foods and tells people left and right that they are poisoning their pets by feeding anything but raw. (that member is on my ignore list over there, now)

the bottom line is

1) is it labled by the AAFCO as nutritionally complete and

2) will your pets eat it.

the problem with AAFCO - a cat food will pass the test if 6/8 cats on the food trial don't die...

i have switched now from friskies wet to raw and from the brands i listed to almost all grain free
