Equine Feeding Guidelines

Divide feed into a minimum of two equal feedings. Never feed more than 0.5 lbs of grain per 100 lbs of body weight in a single feeding.

The amount of grain fed to any horse will vary depending on forage quality and availability in addition to the animal’s weight, body condition, activity level and age.

All dietary changes should be made slowly over a period of 10-14 days.

If your horse has dental problems or trouble swallowing, this product can be soaked in water before feeding.

If feeding less than the daily recommended amount of a concentrated feed, supplement with E-TEC Balancer to meet adequate levels of vitamins and minerals.

If you would like to have your horse’s diet evaluated to ensure it is balanced for all critical nutrients, please contact your Poulin Grain feed specialist.

When I first reached out to Poulin many years ago, they sent a rep down who assessed my feed program, took core hay samples so that we could base my diets off of what I was feeding for forage. I’m a very customer service oriented person and I am really big on follow through and going the extra mile. Poulin Grain demonstrated this time and time again and it is for those reasons also that I have been a long time customer!”
