Creep feed to foals beginning at three months of age. Feed at the rate of 1.0 lbs. per month of age. Do not feed free choice.

After weaning, feed at the rate of 1.0 to 1.5 lbs. per 100 lbs. of body weight depending upon body condition. With good forage, yearlings may be switched to a 14% grain mix at fourteen months of age.

Feed to lactating mares at 8-12 lbs. per day with liberal amounts of forage. Adjust feed intake according to mare condition, milk production and forage quality.

All Formax horse feeds should be fed with liberal quantities of good quality hay and/or pasture and free-choice mineral-vitamin mix. Provide clean, fresh water at all times.

Store feed in a clean, dry place protected from insects and rodents. Never feed moldy or insect infested feed to horses as it may cause illness, abortion or death.
