How to start feeding Victor Extruded Advantage: It is recommended that you feed your horse nothing other than water and good quality hay for a minimum of 24 hours before introducing this food. This ensures the intestine is completely void of undigested starch from a previous food. Then feed according to the directions below.
Feeding Hay: Victor Extruded Advantage Horse Feed is designed to supplement good quality grass hay. Horses should be offered hay free choice and should consume a minimum of 1% of their body weight daily.
Feeding for Normally Active Adult Horses: Supplementing Victor Extruded Advantage at a rate of 0.4% of their bodyweight daily will keep most horses with even moderate levels of activity in good condition. Feeding for High Energy Demands (Lactating Females, Breeding Stallions, Colts, and very hard working horses) the feed rate may be safely increased to 1.20% of their bodyweight daily.
1000 lbs. Horse Example: Feed a minimum of 10 lbs. of hay each day and 4.0 lbs. of Victor Extruded Advantage Horse Feed. A person can safely feed up to 12 lbs. of Victor Extruded Advantage Horse Feed to their 1000 lbs. horse that is requiring extreme levels of energy. Monitor body condition and make adjustments in daily feeding levels to maintain good condition. Note: As a result of the unique cooking process, this food weighs almost ½ that of a typical pelleted horse feed. Make sure your feeding by weight and not by volume.

FOR BEST RESULTS: Split total daily feed amount into two or more equal feedings. Keep salt and a good quality free choice mineral available to horses as well as a fresh supply of water at all times. When changing to Victor Extruded Advantage it is recommended to feed only hay and water for a minimum of 24 hours before introducing Victor Extruded Advantage into their diet. Do not allow horses access to moldy or insect infested feed or hay.
NOTES ON PALATABILITY: Victor Extruded Advantage is based on premium quality fiber sources as well as wholesome grains, all of which are highly palatable to horses. There is no need to add any type of flavors to enhance palatability. Extruded products have a very different texture, much like that of breakfast cereal. Most horses will immediately start eating this feed, while others may take a few days to become accustomed to the different texture, especially when moved from a sweet textured feed.

The horse is considered to be a non-ruminant herbivore, meaning it does not have a multi-compartmented stomach (like a cow), and consumes only plant foods in nature. The equine stomach is unique in that the small intestine uses enzymes for digestion for primarily proteins, starches, and fats. The hind-gut (large intestine) utilizes a bacterial fermentation process to break down the fibrous portions of the equine diet. Horses consuming only a few pounds of feed daily seldom have a digestive tract problem. Performance horses that require high levels of energy are most susceptible to digestive upsets caused primarily from undigested feed-stuffs passing into the hind-gut where the fermentation process begins to produce gas, heat, and discomfort for the horse. In severe cases, this can lead to colic, which is the number one killer of horses today. Horses with healthy, efficiently functioning digestive systems have a decreased risk of colic and are less nervous, displaying a comfortable calm demeanor allowing them to better focus on tasks which may result in better overall performance.

Extrusion is a relatively complex cooking and drying process that is commonly used in both the human and pet food industry. Extrusion utilizes a combination of steam and friction as heat sources to “cook” a formula under pressure. The sudden release of pressure as the product exits the die plate causes starch molecules to “explode” much like that of popcorn. This forms a unique “Expanded” food nugget that is highly digestible. A horse’s small intestine digestion of uncooked grains such as corn, rice, barley, etc.. typically runs between 30 and 45 percent. Gelatinized starch found in Victor Extruded Advantage horse feed digests at a rate exceeding 90% which represents a 200-300% increase in small intestine starch digestion.
