Efficient production requires a thorough understanding and application of the fundamental principles of good husbandry and sanitation. The Purina® Winning Philosophy program will help you step into the spotlight.
1. GOOD BREEDING: Practice a sound genetic program of selection and culling. Visit a professional breeder for more information. Know the feeling when you have that perfect animal that has the best potential to win.
2. GOOD FEEDING: Proper nutrition for different needs and lifestyles starts with Honor® Show products. Feed at regular times at least two times daily, with three daily feedings preferred. You can’t become a Grand Champion without the best nutrition.
3. SOUND MANAGEMENT: A clean environment minimizes stress and aims to improve average daily gains. Clean stalls, remove debris and provide fresh water daily. The daily attention to detail is the difference between a Grand Champion and lower placement.
4. PREVENTIVE HEALTH: Establish an effective health program with your local veterinarian. A sick animal never makes it to the top.
These are the building blocks of the Honor® Show program and the keys to successful production. Practical application of these basic principles will not only support your animal’s growth and development, but also increase its potential of winning on the show circuit.
