Fortifed Feeds are mixes of ingredients meant to
provide the correct balance of proteins, energy sources,
vitamins and minerals for particular groups of horses.
In contrast, grain mixes contain grains and molasses, but
not added protein, vitamins or minerals. Grain mixes always
contain more phosphorus than calcium and usually lead to
nutrient deficiencies and imbalances in the total ration.
Fortified feeds are much better for horses than grain
mixes because they contain vitamins and minerals in the
correct amounts and ratios for horses. Vitamins and minerals
added to feeds must be listed on the label. Be sure to check
the label on your horse feed. If vitamins and minerals, [for
example: monocalcium phosphate, copper sulfate, d-alpha
tocopherol acetate (natural-source vitaminE)] are not listed
on the feed label, the feed is a grain mix, not a fortified
Fortified feeds come in two main forms, pelleted feeds and
sweet feeds. In most situations, we recommend pelleted feeds
for horses. Our pelleted feeds contain less starch and sugar
and are more digestible in horses than typical sweet feeds.

rations are desirable, because they contain much less starch and
sugar. But, how can horses on high-forage rations get enough
energy for maximum performance? Fortunately, high-energy, added
fat, GROSTRONG Ultra-Fiber Horse Feed is now
available. It provides substantial energy to horses with minimal
starch. And, its 5-6 pound feeding rate allows horses to be fed
high-forage rations. Therefore, the use of high-starch cereal
grains, which often result in digestive and metabolic disorders,
can be eliminated.........
