Purina® Omolene #300® Growth Horse Feed
It took over 100 years of industry-leading research and innovation to build today’s Purina® Omolene® horse feed lineup. We started with naturally nutritious high-quality whole grains packed with antioxidants, phytonutrients and prebiotic fibers. From there, countless nutrition studies and feeding trials at the Purina Animal Nutrition Center led to scientific breakthroughs that keep our formulas on the cutting-edge of equine nutrition and performance. Because only innovations proven to have the highest level of performance and safety earn their place in Purina® Omolene® horse feeds, you can feed with full confidence. Whether you need to fuel intense competitive performance, support your horse’s gastric health or nourish the growth of the next generation of equine athletes, Omolene® feeds are built to help solve your toughest nutritional challenges.

*This is the recommended minimum amount of hay to be fed. If feeding more hay, you may reduce the feeding rate of Omolene® 300 needed to maintain appropriate body condition.
** Do not feed less than 0.35 lbs/100 lbs body weight/day (3.5 lbs per 1000 lbs BW) or 0.75 lbs per 100 lbs of body weight per day for yearlings (3.75 lbs per 500-lb BW). If your horse gains too much weight at that minimum feeding rate, replace Omolene® 300 with Purina® ENRICH PLUS® Ration Balancing Horse Feed.
*** Feeding rates of Omolene® 300 and forage may be adjusted or feed may be top-dressed with Purina® Amplify® High Fat Supplement for additional calories.
**** Use the lower feeding rate for moderate growth rate and the higher feeding rate to support more rapid growth.
