FEEDING DIRECTIONS


 Feed Co-op 11% Sweet Horse Feed Coarse at a rate of 0.50% to 1.00% of body weight per horse per day depending upon body condition and level of activity. Offer one half of the daily feed in the morning and the other half in the evening. Good quality forage (fresh or stored) should be available free choice. If horses are not accustomed to feed grains, begin feeding at 0.25% of body weight daily slowly increasing over 10 to 14 days to the previously recommended levels. Keep fresh, clean water available at all times except immediately following exercise. After exercise, allow horses to cool down completely before allowing access to free choice water.

GENERAL GUIDELINES

  • Always use feeds designed for their intended purpose and follow feeding recommendations. Consult the attached feed tag for feeding recommendations specific to this product.
  • Feeding recommendations are offered on a weight, not volume basis. Use a scale to measure the correct amount of feed.
  • Forages play a critical role in the overall gastrointestinal health of the horse. A normal, healthy horse should be provided a minimum of 1 lb of good-quality forage per 100 lb of body weight. That is 11 lb of forage for an 1,100 lb horse. In most cases, offering forage at a rate of 1.5 to 2.0 lb per 100 lb of body weight would be preferred.
  • Horses are known to have sensitive digestive systems. Changes in type or amount of feed offered may be problematic, so implement any changes to the diet gradually over a 7 to 10 day period. Changes in the amount offered should not exceed 1.0 to 1.5 lb per day.
  • If feeding a concentrate ration at more than 0.5 lb per 100 lb of body weight per day, divide the amount into 2 or 3 individual meals, ideally spaced equally apart.
  • Feed at similar times each day to minimize digestive upset.
  • Monitor your horse‚Äôs body condition. It may be necessary to adjust the feeding program to maintain an appropriate body condition.
  • Always provide access to plenty of clean, fresh water. Monitor water intake as changes in water consumption may signal an impending issue. Following intense exercise, access to water should be limited to small, frequent drinks until the horse has adequately cooled down.
  • Store feed in a dry area, protected from insects and rodents.
  • Consult with a veterinarian to develop a health care program, including proper dental care, effective parasite control, and disease prevention.
