Provide clean, fresh water at all times and provide free-choice Harvest Salt by BUCKEYE® Nutrition.

Forage values are suggested intakes based on good quality forage. The quality and digestibility of the forage is variable and dependent on the maturity of the plant at harvest. Horses older than six months should be fed at least 1% of body weight as forage to maintain gut health.

When possible, have your forage analyzed to estimate quality and digestibility.

If additional calories are needed do one of the following:

  1. Add ULTIMATE FINISH™ 25, 40 or 100 by BUCKEYE® Nutrition.
  2. Incorporate additional BUCKEYE® Nutrition products.

Sometimes a little more in the winter. I live in Mo. Gets pretty cold here. A 50 lb bag lasts a long time. Its pelleted for easy digestion. I would recommend this to everyone"
Betsy, OH:  "This is been my go to ration balancer for all of my horses and all classes from aged to weanling. Low carb/low starch, it provides the basics with a consistent ration. I have never found things pieces of corn, oats, bad pellets, floor sweepings in any Buckeye product as I have with other companies feeds."
"I purchased the GRO 'N WIN® for our mini to help supplement him for jumping and to develop more strength overall. He has improved in his overall appearance after he started taking it. Definitely recommend it."
"I have successfully fed GRO 'N WIN® to a large range of horses from a young mini to a senior Arab. Proven product from a company you can trust. The low Nsc non-structural carbohydrates makes it a great balancer for a horse with dietary issues PPID,IR,DSLD,etc."
