  • Measured Horse Feeding (25-pound bag): Use the scoop provided to top-dress 2 ounces once daily per horse onto regular grain or concentrate.
  • Free Choice (25-pound bag): Set Free Balance® 12:12 Vitamin & Mineral Supplement in a large tub or mineral feeder under shelter or in a run-in shed. Research shows horses consume, on average, 2 ounces per head per day. Horses will eat more than the average some days and less on other days. Some horses will over consume this supplement when first given free choice. If excessive consumption (more than 4 ounces/day) occurs for longer than two days, remove the supplement for two days, then return to free choice. If overconsumption still occurs, follow directions for measured feeding.  

Caution: Follow label directions. Feeding added selenium at levels in excess of 0.3 ppm in the total diet is prohibited. When fed as recommended, Free Balance® 12:12 Vitamin & Mineral Supplement will provide no more than 0.3 ppm selenium to the total diet. 

Important: Store in a dry, well-ventilated area protected from rodents and insects. Do not feed moldy or insect-infested feed as it may cause illness or death. This product was made in a feed manufacturing facility that does not handle or store products containing animal proteins prohibited in ruminant feed.
