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.



OLA maintains weight & is still energized after competition

Meet OLA Loki and owner Bonnie! Loki is insulin resistant, but still competed 665 miles in competitive trail, endurance and limited distance endurance to win the regional championship, Part Arab championship, the Charles Phillips Versatility award and the AHDRA versatility award.

"While he is competing, Loki gets Cadence, which he LOVES, and GRO 'N WIN. He was able to maintain his weight and remain full of energy even after three days in a row of competing and going week after week. When he is not competing he just gets GRO 'N WIN. Thanks you for taking the time to do the research and produce great products for the performance horse."

Koda's hoof quality & coat condition improve with GRO 'N Win

Meet Koda, a 20 year old Quarter Horse. He's retired from barrel racing but still active with his owner, Hallee. After just one month on GRO 'N Win, his topline, coat condition and hoof quality have improved drastically, and he is feeling like a 4 year old again!

Charlie's coat shines with GRO 'N Win

I love your product Gro 'N Win! I adopted a 2011 standardbred gelding in March, and although he was in good condition for a stockyard rescue, he still was on the thin side with a dull/scraggly coat. Even after a month or so of TLC and being on a regular feeding program, Charlie was lethargic with a dull coat, so I called my local pet pharmacy/feed store and asked for suggestions. They put me in contact with a Buckeye nutritionist, and she suggested Gro 'N Win. Within a week, Charlie started to shine up, muscle up and had so much more energy! He looks fantastic - and he LOVES it. Charlie and I thank you so much for such a fantastic product!

Grow 'n Win is Lori's Go To Feed

We want to thank you for providing us with the wonderful ration balancer, Gro ‘N Win! Many years ago, our veterinarian recommended Gro ‘N Win for a young horse that was experiencing growth issues and since the vet was such a fan of the feed, she suggested that we start all of our horses on Gro ‘N Win. Hence, the start of a wonderful feeding program. My current show horse, Joly Sweet Valentine (Whinny) has been on Gro ‘N Win since she was a baby. We have found that Gro ‘N Win has helped to keep her competitive. She maintains a great body condition, a high quality shine and as an extra bonus she remains calm.
