Mineral and vitamin supplementation is necessary for horses for several reasons:

• Required for digestion and utilization of feedstuffs and for most metabolic processes • Due to mineral depletion of soils, feedstuff nutrient value is lower

• Mineral and vitamin content of forages varies greatly

• Due to vitamin-mineral interactions, these nutrients need to be supplied in the correct amounts and proportions

• To achieve optimum performance Supplemental protein may be required based on growth requirements, reproductive stage, and forage quality.
