*These recommendations are based on the mare or growing horse eating the minimum recommended amount of hay per day (1.2 lbs per 100 lbs of body weight for mature horses, 1.0 lb per 100 lbs body weight for 300 to 400 lb weanlings, or 1.2 lbs per 100 lbs body weight for 500 to 1,000 lb growing horses. If feeding more hay reduce the amount of Ultium  Growth Horse by 1.0lb for every 2 lbs of additional hay fed. **Do not feed less than 0.45 pounds of Ultium Growth Horse Formula per 100 pounds of body weight per day for lactating mares. For growing horses weighing over 700 pounds, do not feed less than 0.65 pounds per 100 pounds body weight. If your horse gains too much weight at that minimum feeding rate, then you should replace Ultium® Growth Horse Formula with Purina Enrich Plus ration balancing feed, and feed according to feeding directions. ***Adjust amount fed to achieve desired growth rates.  Feed amounts from lower end of range for more moderate growth rate and amounts from upper end of range for more rapid growth rate. For growing horses in training, adjust feeding rate to maintain body condition according to level of work, making any changes in feed gradually. For horses sensitive to dietary carbohydrates, please consult with a veterinarian or nutritionist for a recommended diet.
Best Results
  • Feeding rates will vary with size, age, temperament, health status, forage quality,climate and activity level. Feed at regular times - at least twice daily - with three daily feedings preferred. Let horses feed in a natural position from troughs with large bottoms, placed at normal head height or lower. Do not feed free-choice. Prevent the rapid eating by the horse of any feedstuff.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Have plenty of clean, fresh water available at all times. Provide your horse with access to salt. Maintain an effective control program for internal parasites. Have the horse's teeth examined annually and consult your veterinarian on a regular basis.
Changing To
  • Make the feed change gradually over a period of 7 to 10 days.
  • Mix the new feed with the old, gradually increasing the amount of the new feed while decreasing an equal amount of the old.
  • Changes in the rate of feeding should not exceed 1 pound per day for each horse.
Caution
Store in a dry, well-ventilated area protected from rodents and insects. Do not feed moldy or insect-infested feed to animals as it may cause illness, performance loss or death. Feeding added selenium resulting in total diet levels in excess of 0.3 ppm is prohibited.
