Guaranteed Analysis & Ingredients Vary by Region
Use Forage First Hay Extender as a partial forage (hay)
replacement for all classes of horses. The equine digestive
system needs at least 0.5 lb per 100 lb of body weight daily of
good-quality, chewable, long-stem forage to encourage gut
digestive activity. This means a 1000 lb horse needs at least 5
lb of hay or a long-stem forage source per day for healthy gut
function. If more hay is fed, reduce the amount of the Forage
First Hay Extender by 1 lb for each 2 lb of hay fed. Forage
First Hay Extender can also be used as an ingredient in
concentrate mixes. Equine maintenance requirements are between
1.5 to 2.0% of body weight in dry matter forage daily. This
amount increases with activity level, gestation, lactation, and
cold weather. The feeding rate for Forage First Hay Extender may
vary with age, size, health status, climate, forage quality and
availability, and activity levels. This product does not provide
adequate minerals or vitamins and should be fed with a
concentrate mix or a high-quality vitamin-mineral product, such
as GROSTRONG Minerals. Water should be fresh, palatable and
available at all times.
