* This is the recommended minimum amount of hay to be fed. If feeding more hay, you may reduce the feeding rate of Ultium®
Gastric Care Horse Formula to maintain appropriate body condition.
** To meet nutrient requirements, do not feed less than 0.3 lbs. per 100 lbs. of bodyweight per day for mature horses at maintenance (3 lbs. per 1000-lb horse). If your horse gains too much weight at the minimum feeding rate, transition to Purina®
