Purina Ultium Competition Horse Formula
Purina Ultium Competition Horse Formula is designed for world-class equine athletes, allowing them to compete at their highest levels. Ultium® Competition Horse Formula delivers a concentrated amount of energy to these working horses, by distributing this energy over several different sources (vegetable oils, beet pulp and a proprietary mix of other sources). Because this feed is energy dense, less feed is required for maintenance of body condition when compared to feeds with lower energy density, such as straight grains. Ultium® Competition Horse Formula delivers mental focus and manageability, quick recovery and muscle repair, prolonged stamina, a strong top line and less digestive upset.

Ultium® Competition Horse Formula
Start with the amounts given for the weight and class of horse. However, individual horse variation may require feeding rate adjustment by plus or minus 10-15%. Therefore, the horse's body condition should be assessed at regular intervals (every 2-3 weeks) and the amount fed either increased or decreased to maintain the desired body condition.
Changes in diet should be gradual. A 7-10 day period should be allowed to reach recommended feeding rates. Further increases in feeding rate should not exceed one pound per day for an individual horse.
Always feed a minimum of 1 lb per 100 lbs of body weight of good quality hay and/or pasture.
Fresh clean water and salt should be provided free-choice to all horses.
