FORAGE FIRST® is important for
From a scientific standpoint, horses are classified as non-ruminant
herbivores, with digestive tracts designed to best utilize
good-quality forages. Substantial research shows that feeding
programs relying too heavily on cereal grains, with limited forage,
often result in health and performance problems. Forage, a horse's
natural feed, should be chosen to meet as much of a horse's protein,
energy, and fiber needs as possible. ADM Animal Nutrition's unique
FORAGE FIRST approach is specifically designed to make it easy to
maximize the forage in horse rations.
Additional Energy Needs Premium Blends are formulated by combining stabilized
rice bran with other energy, protein, vitamin and mineral sources to
produce unique products that are more concentrated, thus lowering
the feeding rate in comparison to traditional feeds and supplements.
FORAGE FIRST programs combine good-quality forage, GROSTRONG® vitamin-mineral
products, and Specialized Premium Blends (POWERGLO®,
JUNIORGLO, and ShowBoost®
containing stabilized rice bran) to produce balanced total rations.
With this combination of feeds, horses can be healthy and perform at
their best when fed less grain than they would receive from
traditional horse rations. Consequently, horses are at less risk of
metabolic and digestive disorders and DOD that may result from
high-starch intake. Stabilized rice bran is the foundation of ADM Animal
Nutrition's Specialized Premium Blend products.
Advantages of Stabilized Rice Bran as
an Energy Source
Provides 20% fat from natural
rice oil - highly digestible energy source provides more energy
per pound compared to grains, thus reducing the amount of starch
in the diet which can reduce "grain-high attitude," risk of
digestive disorders, and thermal load.
Can be used to enhance body
condition of thin horses.
Contributes to hair coat shine

rice bran refer to the

Nutrition for Foals, Growing Horses, and Broodmares
A source of energy that does not contribute to metabolic and
digestive disorders and developmental orthopedic disorders (DOD)
is a long-awaited breakthrough for the horse industry. JUNIORGLO,
a Specialized Premium Blend product, contains the
original stabilized rice bran, which is considered the best source
of beneficial dietary fat for horses. JUNIORGLO, contains no whole
corn or corn starch and is formulated by combining Stabilized Rice
Omega Flax?, and Soy Shine® with protein, vitamin, and mineral
sources to produce a unique feed that is more energy dense, thus
lowering the feeding rate compared to traditional grain-based
horse feeds. JUNIORGLO is a key component of FORAGE FIRST®
programs and is the perfect fit for meeting the nutritional
challenges faced by young, growing horses. FORAGE FIRST programs
combine good-quality forage, GROSTRONG® vitamin-mineral products,
and Specialized Premium Blends to produce balanced total rations.
With this combination of feeds, horses can be healthy and perform
at their best when fed less grain than they would receive from
traditional horse rations. Consequently, horses are at less risk
of metabolic and digestive disorders and DOD that may result from
high-starch intake. Stabilized rice bran is the
foundation of Alliance Nutrition's Specialized Premium Blend
JUNIORGLO provides GROSTRONG Minerals (since 1925) with vitamins
and electrolytes and is also enhanced with direct fed microbials
to boost foregut efficiency and Prosponse® brewers dried yeast,
known to improve digestibility of forage components in the
hindgut. The proprietary formula is beneficial for young, growing
horses to synergistically accelerate the digestive process in the
stomach and small intestine where maximum absorption takes place.
The dual action benefits are:
More efficient metabolism of
nutrients from the entire ration - resulting in availability of
more nutrients and cost savings.
Less acidity in the hindgut with
more efficient digestive activity - reducing the risks of the
number one and two killers (colic and founder) of horses.

Premium Nutrition for Mature Horses
PRIMEGLO, #81578AAA24, is the first of its
kind, an ultra-premium, pelleted horse feed formulated to meet
the needs of typical trail and light performance horses without
overdoing the calories and without the need for additional
The average horse owner feeds 4.5 nutritional supplements, which
is very expensive and ultimately results in un-balanced rations.
With correctly balanced rations, there should be no need for
supplements for coat, hoof quality or digestive support. None of
these are necessary when feeding PRIMEGLO according to feeding
PRIMEGLO is a 2x concentrated feed formulated for a 2-4 lb#
feeding rate for typical horses (900-1,200 lb#). This feeding
rate results in a feed with one-half or less the calories of
typical horse feeds. This also lowers the cost per horse daily,
resulting in a more economical total feeding program.
PRIMEGLO contains ADM proprietary ingredients specifically
blended with the best feed ingredients for overall health,
optimal digestion, shiny coats, strong hooves and bloom.
PRIMEGLO comes in 5/16 inch pellets that are easy for horses to
pick up if dropped, resulting in less waste. PRIMEGLO has a base
of alfalfa (known to help prevent ulcers) and soybean hulls and
contains HEALTHY GLOTM and StaySTRONG® Metabolic Mineral Pellets
with ZinPro®* 4-Plex organic trace minerals, direct-fed
microbials, CitriStimTM and Prosponse® brewer's dried yeast.
PRIMEGLO contains 8% fat from stabilized rice bran, Omega Flax®
and Soy Shine®. PRIMEGLO is available in 50# poly bags.
The official launch of PRIMEGLO was at the Clinton Anderson Tour
Stop in St. Paul, MN on
June 4-5, 2011.
PRIMEGLO is now available nationwide. PRIMEGLO
will be promoted through The Horse Show with Rick Lamb, the

For Youthful Bloom and Condition
Premium Nutrition for Horses Aged 4 & Over Recent advances in equine
medicine and nutrition are making it possible for horses to live
longer and more productive lives. Research indicates senior horses
may be less efficient at absorbing or utilizing certain nutrients.
The specially selected and combined ingredients in SENIORGLO are
perfect for meeting the nutritional challenges faced by senior

free of whole corn or corn starch in order to provide energy without
producing symptoms of grain overload typically associated with
feeding large amounts of grain.
Streamlined feeding -
Because of its concentrated formula, SENIORGLO is the only
senior horse feed that allows horse owners to choose their forage
and forage-to-concentrate ratios. For instance, many older horses
can still consume some hay and pasture, while others need processed
forages, such as hay cubes.
