Feed with a Good Quality Hay and Grain Ration
Farrier's Formula® should be fed with a good quality hay and grain ration. Eliminate any bran from the diet if possible. The phytate and phosphorus content of bran can alter calcium/phosphorus absorption or lead to other mineral imbalances.
One standard measuring cup (237 ml) will deliver 170 grams of product. Two cups (474 ml) will deliver 340 grams of product. Top dress or mix with grain ration.
Top dress or mix with regular feed. For each 1000 lbs (450 kg) of body weight use one measuring cup (170 gm) of product per day.
