Client Testimonial

"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

Our history.

BUCKEYE Nutrition has been in business for more than 100 years. We trace our beginning to 1910 when the Pocock Family of Massillon, Ohio, opened The Buckeye Cereal Company. Even back then, quality was at the center of our story. In September 2005, another family-owned company, Mars, Incorporated, purchased BUCKEYE Nutrition and shifted the company's focus to premium equine nutrition. What does this mean for BUCKEYE Nutrition? It means an ongoing commitment to high-quality, consistent feeds produced by a family-owned, single plant rooted in tradition.

Today, BUCKEYE Nutrition utilizes a scientific approach to develop flagship products like GRO ‘N WIN, Cadence and Ultimate Finish, as well as innovative, solution-based feeds like EQ8 Gut Health. With BUCKEYE Nutrition, you’re guaranteed to find the right feed to help your horse excel.
