Feeding Directions

For the best results with Pryde's BioMare Cubes®:

  • 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.
  • 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.
