Proper growth and development depend upon strong genetics, a nurturing environment, and good nutrition. That’s why the Ph.D. Equine Nutritionists at the Purina Animal Nutrition Center formulated Purina® Equine Junior® horse feed to take the guesswork out of feeding your growing horse. The formula was developed to give your young horse a strong head start with the proper balance of nutrients to promote optimal growth and development. And because Purina® Equine Junior® horse feed is a complete feed with high-quality forage built in, it eliminates nutrient variability of hay or pasture and promotes a consistent diet for weanlings and yearlings.
Purina® Equine Junior® horse feed is designed to be fed as a complete feed because it’s formulated with high-quality forage. If necessary, you may also feed with good-quality hay or pasture—up to a maximum of 5 lbs per day—to relieve boredom. When fed with hay, reduce about 1.0 lb of feed for each 1.5-2.0 lbs of hay offered. For best results, do not feed more than 1.0 lb of hay per 100 lbs of your horse’s body weight per day when feeding Purina® Equine Junior® horse feed. A minimum of 6 lbs of Purina® Equine Junior® horse feed should be fed per day to meet minimum daily requirements of protein, vitamins and minerals.
