Purina Ultium Growth Horse Formula

$37.99

Purina® Ultium® Growth Horse Formula was conceptualized after the Purina new product development team completed their successful launch of the original Ultium® Competition Horse Formula. The Ph.D. nutritionists at the Purina Equine Research Unit in Gray Summit, Missouri knew the advantages of feeding meticulously formulated, higher fat and fiber feeds to competitive athletes. But could the same principles be applied for young growing horses? Since then, research spanning over four years was performed to develop a new feed formulated specifically for young growing athletes. Purina performed detailed scientific feeding trials on broodmares and young horses from multiple foal crops at varying ages, breeds and management situations. The research involved monitoring and measuring growth curves, body condition, joint health, activity levels, blood work and more to ensure optimal nutrient delivery to broodmares and growing horses. The result was unique, industry-leading nutrition proven to support the development, growth and adaptive physiology necessary to produce a strong, healthy athletic horse. It’s another offering of advanced nutrition worthy of the Purina name. Purina® Ultium® Growth Horse Formula. It’s What It Takes®.

NEEDS OF BROODMARES & GROWING HORSES

MARE IN FOAL
Ultium® Growth Horse Formula contains a concentrated calorie delivery system that supports the mare through all stages of gestation, with more total calories from added fat and fiber and lower sugar and starch. Lower feeding rates help support digestive health during this essential time.

Your foal’s best start begins with proper fetal development. Ultium® Growth Horse Formula provides research-determined amounts of nutrients, including copper and zinc for developing fetal liver stores to set the foundation for correct growth.

LACTATION/SUCKLING FOAL
Suckling foals may nurse up to 80 times per day. Ultium® Growth Horse Formula provides additional milk components to support immune function, calorie, and nutrient transfers to active, growing foals.

Lactating mares can require over 35,000 kcal/day to produce adequate milk and maintain body condition. The concentrated calorie delivery system of Ultium® Growth Horse Formula provides the necessary calories during this critical period for both mare and foal sustenance.

WEANLING/YEARLING
Ultium® Growth Horse Formula helps support strong bone development by using high-quality nutrient sources. Amino acids, vitamins and minerals are supplied in optimal amounts and ratios as determined by research studies to provide the necessary building blocks for bone growth.

Young growing horses need carefully-balanced nutrition for optimal muscle development to grow into successful athletes. The protein quality and amino acid fortification of Ultium® Growth Horse Formula supports in the foundation, maturation and maintenance of healthy muscle.

 

Start with the amounts of Ultium® Growth Horse Formula given for the weight and life stage of the horse. After observing the horse for a period of time, the amount fed may be gradually increased or decreased to obtain desired body condition and weight.
