Feeding rates

Oleo Special is recommended for the pleasure or performance horse. Feed at a rate of 0.5 to 1.5 kg per 100 kg of body weight. Adjust feeding rate depending on forage quality, body condition and level of activity. Feed with good quality forage to ensure that the horseconsumes 1% body weight (on a dry matter basis) in forages. Provide free choice salt.

  1. These recommendations are based on feeding a forage equal or greater than 15% protein.
  2. Amounts can vary depending on the hay. Purina recommends that you have your hay analyzed and balance your ration accordingly. In general, Optimal (35720) will better balance the ration of broodmares and foals than Equilizer (35710).
  3. Do not provide more than 0.5% of Body Weight of this feed at one time.
  4. Provide a source of fresh, clean water at all times.
  5. Follow sound management practices along with disease and sanitation control measures. If there are any questions, contact your veterinarian, Purina dealer or Purina sales consultant.

Directions for use must be carefully followed.
Feed is perishable. Store in a dry, well-ventilated area protected from rodents and insects. Do not feed moldy or insect-infested feed to animals as it may cause illness, abortion or death.
