2.  Supply GRASS PLUS Mineral & Vitamin Mix (with grass or mixed forage) or ALFA PLUS Mineral & Vitamin Mix (with legume forage).



For Broodmares:

  • Growth helps to maintain healthy and steady glucose and insulin levels in mares during pregnancy and lactation
  • Growth aids in supporting proper metabolism in nursing foals with reduced levels of starch and sugar
  For Growing Horses:
  • Growth helps promote steady growth using a combination of fat and carbohydrates for calories
  • Growth supports consistent glucose and insulin levels, helping to support healthy metabolism
  • Growth includes ideal concentrations of the amino acids lysine, methionine and threonine necessary to support a healthy growth rate
