VITAMIN, MINERAL AND PROTEIN SUPPLEMENT FOR GROWING, BREEDING AND WORKING HORSES

An extruded and palatable meal made from premium full fat soybean that is fully fortified with a balanced blend of vitamins
and minerals.

  • High quality protein and oils from the full fat soybean support muscle development, enhance coat shine and boost diet energy levels.
  • A versatile supplement that can be added to other grains or high energy feeds or simply fed alone mixed with some chaff.
  • Contains added vitamins and minerals to fill the gaps that natural feedstuffs such as pastures, hay and grains leave in a horse's diet to support the optimal health of growing, breeding and working horses.

Feeding Directions

For the best results with Pryde's Gro Pak®:

  • The daily feeding rates should be used as a guide, but ideally you should not adjust the daily feeding rates of Gro Pak® from the recommendations given. Feeding more or less Gro Pak® will compromise your horse's intake of essential vitamins and minerals. Instead, adjust the amount of additional grain or energy feeds you add to the Gro Pak® according to 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.
  • The above guidelines are based on a 500kg mature horse, or a growing horse expected to reach 500kg. Adjust to your horse's particular size, workload and age.
  • 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.
