Profile

Hubbard® Life Performance Horse Feed is a 12% protein feed specifically designed for the performance horse.  Highly digestible energy sources and high quality proteins are added at optimal levels for the active horse.

 

About the Product

  • The combination of high quality ingredients provides a palatable, consistent and completely fortified feed for working horses.
  • Higher fat levels provide increased caloric intake while minimizing risk due to overfeeding of excessive carbohydrates.
  • Energy sources satisfy metabolic requirements during both the anaerobic and aerobic phases of exercise.

Part of a Coordinated Product Line
Offering a program of horse products helps to support the nutrient demands of different life stages and activity levels.  It also prevents the need to change brands of feed and the off-feed problems that sometimes result.

 

Benefits from Ingredients

Contains Chelated Trace Minerals
The addition of organic minerals is believed to be beneficial because of  the increased uptake of the minerals across the gut wall.  Increased levels of the minerals zinc, copper, manganese and cobalt can help in many biological functions including the immune and reproductive systems.

Organic Selenium
Organic selenium and optimal levels of Vitamin E are added for cell protection in horses that are under the stress of showing, racing, lactating, growing or even low activity animals.

Contains Yeast
The addition of yeast cultures helps increase digestibility of forages and the absorption of nutrients.

Vegetable Oil
Added vegetable oil helps meet energy requirements without overfeeding grain, and improves hair coat condition.

Protein
Hubbard Life Horse Feeds are formulated with select plant protein sources to provide balanced levels of amino acids.  Some of the quality plant protein sources used in Hubbard Life Horse Feeds may include: soybean meal, sunflower meal, canola meal, alfalfa meal and linseed meal.

Energy
Hubbard Life Horse Feeds provide the digestible calories needed for growth and work through a blend of energy rich carbohydrates and fats.  The primary energy sources found in Hubbard Life Horse Feeds may include: oats, barley, corn and vegetable oil.

Feeding Directions

Adjust suggested feeding rate to fit needs of individual horses.  Adjustments of ±10%, depending upon weight, age and activity, are common.

Feed Hubbard Life Performance to the hard-working, high nutrient, demand performance horse.  Supply at a rate of 0.5 to 1 pound per 100 pounds of body weight. Good quality hay should also be supplied. Use the feeding chart at the bottom of the page as a guideline as to how much to feed.

  • Hubbard Life 30% Horse Supplement can be top-dressed on Hubbard Life Performance at the rate of 0.5 to 2 pounds per head per day, depending upon weight, age and activity.

Management Tips

  • Worm at least 4 times each year.
  • Trim horse’s feet frequently.
  • Keep your horse’s teeth floated.
  • A physical examination should be performed annually on all horses by your veterinarian.
