One diet. Multiple lifestyles. Strategy® GX Professional Formula horse feed is as simple and as complex as that. Simple, because the perfected-over-time formula provides 100% of the required protein, vitamins and minerals for a wide variety of horses in your barn, when fed as directed.* While there will always be individual horses with specialized nutrition and management needs, Strategy® GX meets the nutritional needs of the vast majority of horses with a single formulation. So even when your horses are in different stages of breeding or development and varying levels of performance, Strategy® GX delivers complex, balanced nutrition in a simplified feeding program.

Complex, because over the past 12+ years, Purina Animal Nutrition Center researchers have fed Strategy® GX almost 20,000 times in feeding trials and research studies to optimize palatability, growth, exercise performance, and manufacturing quality. The results and resulting optimizations make Strategy® GX the unbeatable formula it is today.

Pasture Chart

* This is the recommended minimum amount of hay to be fed. If feeding more hay, reduce the feeding rate of Strategy® GX horse feed by 1.0 lb for every additional 2.0 lbs of hay fed.

** Do not feed less than 0.3 lbs per 100 lbs of body weight per day for mature horses or 0.75 lbs per 100 lbsof body weight per day for yearlings. If your horse gains too much weight at that minimum feeding rate, then you should replace Strategy® GX horse feed with Purina® Enrich Plus® ration balancing feed.

*** Use lower feeding rate for moderate growth rate and the higher feeding rate to support more rapid growth.




If changing to Purina® Strategy® GX horse feed:

1. Make the feed change gradually over a period of 7 to 10 days.

2. Mix the new feed with the old, gradually increasing the amount of the new feed while decreasing an equal amount of the old.

3. Changes in the rate of feeding should not exceed 1.0 lb per day for each horse.
