*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 for every 2 lbs of additional hay fed. EXAMPLE: Using the chart above, if feeding 16 lbs of hay to a 1,000 lb lactating mare, reduce Ultium® Growth Horse Formula offered by 2.0 lbs from 11.25 to 9.25 lbs per day (4.0 lbs of additional hay divided by 2.0 lbs= 2.0 less of Ultium® Growth Horse Formula). **Do not feed less than 0.45 lbs of Ultium® Growth Horse Formula per 100 lbs of body weight per day for lactating mares. EXAMPLE: 4.5 lbs for 1,000 lb mare. Do not feed less than .9 lbs of Ultium® Growth Horse Formula per 100 lbs body weight for weanlings 700 lbs or less. EXAMPLE: 3.6 lbs for 400 lb weanling. For growing horses weighing over 700 lbs, do not feed less than .65 lbs per 100 lbs body weight. EXAMPLE: 6.5 lbs for a 1,000 lb growing horse. If your horse gains too much weight at that minimum feeding rate, then you should replace Ultium® Growth Horse Formula with Nature's Essentials Enrich 32 Horse Supplement, 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 suckling foals, begin offering feed within 2 weeks of birth.  Feed 1.0 lb of Ultium® Growth Horse Formula per month of age per day.  EXAMPLE: For a 2-month old suckling foal, feed 2.0 lbs per day added to the mare's ration or fed in a separate creep feeder. Important Considerations:
  • Do not feed free-choice
  • Feed at regular times (at least twice daily). When feeding rates exceed 1% of body weight, three daily feedings are preferred
  • Any feed changes should be made gradually over a period of 7 to 10 days
  • Changes in the rate of feeding should not exceed one pound per day for each horse
  • Feed along with at least 1-1.5% of horse’s body weight of good quality hay or the equivalent in pasture to make a complete ration
  • Have plenty of fresh, clean water available at all times
  • Prevent the rapid eating by the horse of any feed stuffs
  • Store feed 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 or death
  • This product to be fed to the animal species as directed on the label
  • In addition to nutritional care and consultation, be sure to make regular veterinary checkups and farrier appointments part of your horse wellness program
