Feeding rates

Evolution Juvenile is recommended for weanlings, yearlings and two-year olds. Feed in conjunction with water and a minimum of 1% body weight (on a dry matter basis) of a long stemmed forage (hay/pasture). Feed according to the following table, whereby the lower quantity meets minimum vitamin and mineral requirements and the higher quantity meets Purina Superior Recommendations. Ideally, feed enough to achieve desired body condition, and for every kilogram under the Purina Superior recommendation, provide 300 grams of Purina Optimal (35720). Depending on hay analysis, Equilizer (35710) may be better suited as the optional top-dress supplement.
