Nutrition Update 1 - Cresty Neck Scoring: How to? - Neck crest fat in horses has been suggested to be associated with insulin resistance and increased risk for laminitis. Poulin Grain offers an ideal feed choice for horses that are at risk of contracting metabolic disorders such as Laminitis, Cushings, Chronic Obesity, Insulin Resistance and Tying Up. Find out how this scoring system can help you.
Nutrition Update 2 - Feeding the Senior Horse - The nutritional management of the senior horse is challenging as there are not set criteria that define “old age” or the “senior” horse. Poulin Grain offers some excellent feed choices for your senior horse.
Nutrition Update 3 - The Low Down on Fat - Fats and oils are commonly used in horse feeds to increase the calorie content of the feed or to replace the calories supplied by carbohydrates. Poulin Grain offers some excellent high fat feed choices for your horse.
Nutrition Update 4 - Omega-3 vs. Omega-6 Fatty Acids - Recent advertisements have focused on the use of Omega-3 supplements for horses, usually containing flaxseed meal, vegetable oil, or fish oil. Studies in humans have found many health benefits with supplementation of Omega-3 fatty acids in the diet. While research benefits for horses have not been as numerous, Omega-3 supplementation shows potential to provide some healthy results. Poulin Grain offers some excellent high fat feed choices for your horse.
Nutrition Update 5 - Fall Leaves - Are They Toxic? - Fall is here! The leaves are changing, and the temperatures are cooling off. It's hard to imagine that such a pretty time of the year could possibly be harmful to our horses, however, falling leaves can pose a potentially deadly threat to our horses. Poulin Grain offers an excellent product to supplement pasture and hay. Forage ExtenderT is a pellet specifically formulated to provide fiber to horses and is now available in TWO SIZES to better meet our customer's needs.
Nutrition Update 6 - Winterizing your feeding program - Most horses have some “down time” in winter, where adverse weather will not permit much riding or showing activity. A reduction in your horse's activity level usually means a reduced need for calories, and requirements for grain or concentrate feeding can be lowered. Poulin Grain offers an excellent product to supplement pasture and hay during the winter months when your horse's activity level is decreased.
Nutrition Update 2-2010 - Maximizing Conception in the Mare - Nutritional management is a simple, cost effective tool to ensure normal cyclical behavior, improved conception rates and increased pregnancy maintenance in mares.
Nutrition Update 3-2010 - Feeding the Mare Through Pregnancy - Previous thoughts on feeding mares through pregnancy placed most nutritional emphasis on the last phase of gestation. We now appreciate that critical organs, such as the heart, are developing during early and mid gestation and specific nutrients are critical for their development.
Nutrition Update 4-2010 - Feeding the Lactating Mare - The lactating mare has the highest nutrient requirements of any horse on the farm. To produce milk and to repair the reproductive tract in preparation for future pregnancy, the mare requires substantial amounts of energy, protein, calcium and phosphorus.
