Barn Bag® Broodmare and Growing Horse
The Barn Bag® Broodmare and Growing Horse Pelleted Feed Concentrate is a source of required basic daily nutrients for all broodmares and growing horses. Vitamins, minerals, amino acids, fatty acids and other nutrients required for pregnancy, lactation, and young horse growth are supplied in the correct amounts by the Barn Bag® Broodmare and Growing Horse Pelleted Feed Concentrate without the problems often associated with poor quality diets and/or over-supplementation. The formulation and nutrient content of the Barn Bag® is derived from research done at the Life Data Labs Research Facility with additional reference to the nationally recognized NRC Nutrient Requirements of Horses.
Problems it Addresses
Calorie requirements vary widely between broodmares and growing horses, and must be addressed separately from other nutrient requirements. When compounded feeds are used, the nutrients added to the feed are “force fed” into the horse at indiscriminant amounts in order to meet the calorie requirements to grow the fetus, lactate or gain weight. This leads to over-supplementation of horses requiring a high calorie intake at their higher feeding levels and insufficient nutrient supplementation of the easy keeper mares.
The Barn Bag® allows the horse owner to separate the calorie requirements for gestation, lactation or growth from other nutrient requirements. Proper feeding during gestation and growth results in a healthier horse!
Give hay and/or pasture for roughage, Barn Bag® for nutrients, and whole oats as an additional calorie source to maintain body condition.
Each 11 lb. bag is a thirty day supply for an adult 1,000 lb. broodmare or a growing horse with an expected adult weight of 1,000 lbs.
