Characteristics



Contains reduced starch and higher fat and fibre content (commonly referred to as low glycemic)

  • Delivers sensible calories (energy) for optimal growth and milk production.
  • A calorie blend designed to help minimize DOD’s (Developmental Orthopedic Diseases) by controlling insulin response in mare and foal.
  • Helps minimize gut upset (colic) by preventing starch overload in the hindgut.
  • Proven to effectively lessen glycemic and insulin response.


Contains a high pectin fibre source (beet pulp)

  • A highly fermentable fibre source providing needed calories for milk production and growth.
  • Helps maintain a healthier hindgut pH and microbial population.


Contains Athlete™, Purina’s unique extruded high fat supplement with flaxseed (an excellent source of Omega‑3) with a 5:1 balanced Omega-6 to Omega‑3 ratio

  • Higher digestibility and calorie (energy) availability.
  • Improves hair coat and skin condition.
  • Supports immune function and anti-inflammatory properties.
  • Omega‑3 fatty acids shown to enhance insulin efficiency thus reducing insulin resistance.
  • Important for proper cognitive development.
  • Promotes improved fertility in mares.


Contains Horse Plus™, Purina’s exclusive blend of Vitamin C, and a full complement of all B vitamins including biotin

  • Helps support proper immune function and overall health.
  • Essential for proper utilization or energy for growth and milk production.
  • Helps enhance fertility.


Contains prebiotics and probiotics

  • Helps promote good gut bacteria and protect against harmful bacteria for improved gut health.
  • Supports antibodies (IgG, IgA, IgM) production in colostrum.


Contains balanced amino acids with added Lysine & Methionine

  • Provides building blocks for improved muscle and joint development and milk production.


Contains organic copper, zinc, manganese and selenium

  • Increases absorption and enhances trace mineral bioavailability to improve immune response and bone development and decrease the risk of DOD’s.
  • Supports the transplacental transfer of selenium during late gestation.


Contains Purina Yeast Culture

  • Improves hindgut fermentation which increases energy, protein and phosphorus utilization.


Contains an elevated level of selenium (0.4 ppm)

  • Important antioxidants.
  • Preventing foal selenium deficiencies.

Feeding rates

Evolution Maternity is recommended for the gestating, lactating mare and nursing foal. 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 275 grams of Purina Optimal (35720). Depending on hay analysis, Equilizer (35710) may be better suited as the optional top-dress supplement.

  1. Agribrands Purina recommends analyzing your hay and balancing the ration accordingly.
  2. Feed clean and dust free hay in sufficient amount daily. Feeding poor quality hay or feeding inadequate amounts could cause colic and other digestive upsets.
  3. Daily ration should be divided into 2 and preferably 3 separate feedings or more.
  4. Use a scale to weigh your feed so you know exactly how much your horse is being fed. Do not feed by volume.
  5. Agribrands Purina recommends providing a maximum of 0.5% of body weight of this feed at one time.
  6. These recommendations are intended as a guide. They should be adjusted to variables of management, environment and individual needs. Consult your Purina Equine Consultant if necessary.
  7. Follow sound management practices along with optimal preventive veterinary medicine.

CAUTION
Directions for use must be carefully followed.
Feed is perishable. Store in a dry, well‑ventilated area protected from rodents and insects. Do not feed moldy or insect‑infested feed to animals as it may cause illness, abortion or death.
