Purina® Enrich Plus® Ration Balancing Horse Feed

Purina® Enrich Plus® Ration Balancing Horse Feed

HIGHLY CONCENTRATED NUTRITION FOR EASY KEEPERS

HORSES NEED MORE NUTRITION THAN FORAGE ALONE CAN PROVIDE. Some horses—whether due to an efficient metabolism, light workload, or high-quality forage-based diet—can maintain their weight on hay or pasture with little to no feed. However, forages alone do not provide the necessary amount or balance of all nutrients, creating inconsistencies and deficiencies. This is also true for horses fed unfortified grains such as oats or corn, which are variable in their protein, vitamin and mineral content. Enrich Plus® is a concentrated, pelleted ration balancing horse feed that may be fed as a horse’s sole ration along with quality hay or pasture to provide the proper balance of nutrients without unnecessary calories.

18-24 months (900-1000 lbs)2.018-20


*For horses that do not approximate this expected mature weight, feeding rates for mature horses at maintenance can be estimated based on 0.1-0.2 lbs Purina® Enrich Plus® Ration Balancer and 2.0 lbs hay or pasture per 100 lbs body weight per day. 

 

**The additional calorie and nutrient demands of horses in more work may be better met by adding a grain or a Purina® product designed for performance horses.

 

***The additional calories needed during the last trimester of gestation and through lactation can be provided by adding a grain or a Purina® product designed for breeding and growing horses. For easy keeper mares in the third trimester, feed 0.2 lbs Purina® Enrich Plus® Ration Balancer per 100 lbs body weight per day.

 

****More rapid rates of growth can be achieved by adding grain to the diet. However, given the inherent nutritional inconsistencies of straight grain diets, more rapid rates of gain are more safely and successfully achieved by feeding a Purina® product designed for growing horses.
