      Feeding Directions

      For the best results with Pryde's EasiFeed Low Starch®:

      • The daily feeding rates should be used as a guide. The amount fed will depend on the quality and quantity of pasture, hay and chaff available, along with the horse's body condition, growth rate and stage of development, pregnancy, lactation or level of work.
      • Feed in conjunction with good quality pasture, hay and/or chaff.
      • Divide the diet into two or more smaller feeds if feeding more than 0.5 kg per 100 kg of body weight/day.
      • Introduce into your horse's ration gradually over a period of 1 - 2 weeks.
      • Clean, fresh water and a salt lick should be made available at all times.
