  • The feeding rate table should be used as a guide. Actual amounts required will vary with individual horses and their work or breeding status; and changes in quality of the pasture, hay, chaff and other feeds provided.

  • When feeding below recommended rates of QPD Breed Mix, vitamin and mineral deficiencies can easily be avoided with a top-up dose of Equine Vit&Min.

  • Total feed intake including pasture, hay and bagged feeds should be 1.5 to 2.5 % of bodyweight daily (dry weight of feed). The majority of intake (at least 1% of bodyweight) for breeding and growing horses should be roughage (hay, chaff, pasture).

  • Roughage should be available at all times.

  • Feed concentrates little and often rather than in one big meal. Do not feed more than 0.5 kg of QPD Breed Mix per 100kg bodyweight in a single meal.

  • Always provide clean, fresh water.

  • Introduce new feeds into the diet gradually over a period of 1 to 2 weeks to allow the gut bacteria to adjust.
