Mineral and vitamin supplementation is necessary for horses for several reasons:
- Required for digestion and utilization of feed stuffs and for most metabolic processes• Due to mineral depletion of soils, feed stuff nutrient value is lower
- Mineral and vitamin content of forages varies greatly
- Due to vitamin-mineral interactions, these nutrients need to be supplied in the correct amounts and proportions
- To achieve optimum performance
Supplemental protein may be required based on growth requirements, reproductive stage, and forage quality. PRO-VITA-MIN 20-5 Tub provides the necessary protein, minerals, and vitamins to complement forages and grains, enabling horses to reach their performance potential. It is an ideal product for meeting nutrient needs under situations that make it difficult to individually supplement horses on a daily basis, such as with pasture or range conditions. It is a good choice for supplementing free-choice to mature horses on pasture or range. Also, it helps meet nutrient needs of yearlings, two-year olds,gestating broodmares, and lactating broodmares. PRO-VITA-MIN 20-5 Tub combines the advantages of GROSTRONG® Minerals with high-quality protein sources. It is the result of unsurpassed formulation expertise and leading edge technology.Over 100 years of formulation and manufacturing expertise back the reliability and nutritional soundness of PRO-VITA-MIN20-5 Tub. PRO-VITA-MIN 20-5 Tub, a Forage First®Vitamin and Mineral Product, is a key component of the Forage First pro-gram. Forage First programs combine good-quality forage, GROSTRONG vitamin-mineral products, and energy-based prod-ucts, when needed, to produce balanced total rations. With this combination of feeds, horses can be healthy and perform attheir best when fed less grain than they would receive from traditional horse rations. Consequently, horses are at less risk of metabolic and digestive disorders and DOD that may result from high-starch intake

Feed GROSTRONG PRO-VITA-MIN 20-5 Tub free-choice to horses on pasture or roughage rations. Make sure animal shave adequate pasture or roughage available and are not starved for salt or minerals. Feed GROSTRONG PRO-VITA-MIN20-5 Tub continuously. Place tubs in pastures near areas frequented by horses, such as watering locations, shade or loafing areas. Place one tub for every 5 horses and place tubs far enough apart to prevent dominant horses from controlling more than one tub. Consumption may vary depending on number of horses per tub, climate, grazing conditions, condition of horses and/or availability of other feeds. Horses should consume 1 to 2 lb per horse daily. In situations where climate and/or other factors result in consumption other than desired, intake of supplement can be increased or decreased by adding or reducing tubs per pasture. Provide adequate forage and supplemental feed as needed to maintain the desired body condition. Provide free access to fresh, clean water at all times.
CAUTION: Consumption of this product by sheep and goats may result in copper toxicity. Follow label directions. Feeding added selenium at levels in excess of 0.3 ppm in the total diet is prohibited.
