1-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 6 months should be fed at least 1% of the bodyweight as forage to maintain gut health.

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

3-If the recommended minimum feeding rate is not met, either: Add 1 lb of GRO 'N WIN or GRO 'N WIN Alfa for every 4 lbs of Cadence™ Ultra underfed.

4-Always maintain a clean, fresh water supply.
5-Make salt available free choice.


Cadence Ultra Helps Finicky Horse Waylin

Waylin is a 12-year-old thoroughbred that I have had for four years now. Over the years I have tried everything to get him to eat and gain weight. About seven months ago, it was suggested by one of my feed stores employees to try the Cadence Ultra. I was prepared for him to turn his nose up at it as he has done over and over again. I was in total shock when he started eating it like he hadn't had food for years.

In the seven months since he has been eating the Cadence Ultra, not only has he gained weight and muscle but he also had dapples for the first time in four years. My farrier also said that his feet have never looked better. Waylin is a much happier and healthier horse thanks to BUCKEYE® Cadence Ultra. I would recommend Cadence Ultra and any of the BUCKEYE® products.
