* For horses that do not approximate this expected mature weight, feeding rates for mature horses at maintenance can be estimated based on 0.2-0.4 lbs Purina® Omega Match™ Ration Balancer and 0.2 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.

**** 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.

A 2 lb meal of Omega Match™ Ration Balancing Horse Feed supplies a full serving of Outlast® supplement.

 

Caution: Follow label directions. Feeding added selenium resulting in total diet levels in excess of 0.3 ppm is prohibited.

 

Important:

  1. Feeding rates will vary with size, age, temperament, health status, forage quality, climate and activity level. Feed at regular times, at least twice daily. Do not feed more than 0.5 lbs/100 lbs of body weight per meal. Do not feed free-choice. Prevent rapid eating by the horse of any feedstuff.
  2. Reduce and/or delay feeding a horse which is hot, excited or showing pain, has fever or diarrhea. Consult your veterinarian if any problems arise.
  3. Always feed a minimum of 1.0 to 1.2 lbs per 100 lbs of body weight of good quality clean hay or the equivalent in pasture.
  4. Any feed changes should be made gradually over a period of 7 to 10 days. Changes in the rate of feeding should not exceed 1.0 lb per day for each horse.
  5. Provide fresh, clean water at all times. Provide your horse with access to salt. Consult with your veterinarian regularly and maintain a routine dental, parasite control and health care program for your horse.
