Description

Forage – either hay or pasture – is the most natural and preferred feed for horses providing the foundation for all equine diets. Although forage should make up the main part of the diet, and can meet your horse’s energy requirements, it alone will not meet all nutritional needs. Different types of forage provide different levels of protein, vitamins, and minerals that may not support your specific horse’s needs. However, using the Gro ‘n Win® range of products, it is easy to tailor your horse’s feeding program to meet the unique nutritional requirements for work and various life stages. Ration balancers such as Gro ‘n Win® are designed to provide all of the vitamins and minerals your hay is lacking without providing nutrients your horse doesn’t need. Gro ‘n Win® is scientifically proven to benefit your horse’s overall health by providing essential amino acids for muscle development and fatty acids to aide in immune response. By utilizing a diet with low starch and sugar, you can help prevent or regulate many nutrition-related disorders, such as LaminitisInsulin Resistance, Tying-Up, Cushing’s Disease, EPSM and HYPP. By decreasing the insulin spike in your horse’s diet, you can also lessen hyperactivity creating a smoother, quieter performance in the arena or in the barn.

 

Gro ‘n Win® Alfa is scientifically formulated for horses on legume forage.

*Min (Minimum lbs./day) and Max (Maximum lbs./day)
Forage values are suggested intakes based on good quality forage. The quality and digestibility of the forage is variable and dependent on the maturity of the plant at harvest. Horses older than 6 months should be fed at least 1% of the bodyweight as forage to maintain gut health.

 

When possible, have your forage analyzed to estimate quality and digestibility.

 

If additional calories are needed do the following:

 

  1. Add Ultimate Finish™ by BUCKEYE Nutrition®.
  2. Incorporate the recommended amount of specially designed feeds by BUCKEYE Nutrition® to meet the unique energy demands of your horse.
