Feeding Recommendation

NRM Sweetfeed™ can be fed alone or combined with a suitable fibre source. Adjust intake according to needs based on breed, body weight, body condition, work load and available forage. Grain or a fat source such as oil or NRM Equi-Jewel may be fed in conjunction with NRM Sweetfeed™ if a higher calorie diet is required. Always provide at least 1.5% of the horse’s body weight in good quality forage (pasture, hay, chaff, fibre products) per day. Always allow free access to fresh, clean water.


Please ensure product is stored in a cool, dry and vermin free environment.

Caution: Do not feed to any animal species other than those stipulated on the label.
