Our Story



We love horses as much as you do. Pure nutrition, safe ingredients – they matter to you. And to us. 

It’s why we do our part to help horses live the longest, healthiest and happiest lives possible. We do it by working with equine nutritionists, using only 100 percent traceable ingredients and producing our feeds in a single, medicine-free facility.


We're horse people.

Caring for horses is our passion. Our mission simply is to provide the highest-quality, safest feed available and best-in-class equine nutritional solutions.

We partner with the industry’s top research center, the WALTHAM Centre for Pet Nutrition, and take a scientific approach to develop nutritionally sound, solution-based horse feeds.


Our history.

The Pocock family of Massillon, Ohio, started the Buckeye Cereal Company in 1910. Quality was the company’s hallmark. They eventually ventured into producing livestock feeds.

In 2005, Mars, Incorporated, also a family owned company, purchased Buckeye Nutrition, and the focus shifted to premium equine nutrition. Today, Buckeye Nutrition produces its flagship products such as GRO N’ WIN™, Cadence™ and Ultimate Finish™, as well as solution-based feeds like EQ8™ Gut Health. 

We want every horse to have the best formula for their specific needs. Discover the right feeding solution for your horse

"After one week on EQ8 my horse began gaining the weight he needed. He switched from ear pinning as his go-to response to perking up and resting his muzzle on my hip. Competition wise, we went from not even being able to complete a novice course without me getting dumped to moving up to training level. I swear by EQ8™ and am so thankful that I found that last piece of my horse's maintenance. It allows him to feel and perform at his best. A big thanks to BUCKEYE!" – Lillie, KS
