Product line formulated by Purina Ph.D. Equine Nutritionists and based on 85 years of research
ST. LOUIS, (Purina) – Purina Animal Nutrition today introduced IMPACT horse feed, a line of premium horse feeds designed to meet the nutritional requirements of horses of all types and lifestyles. The product line offers textured, pelleted and complete feeds for horses in nearly any life stage and activity level.
Since 1926, the Purina Animal Nutrition Center in Gray Summit, Mo., has defined and delivered the future of equine nutrition. Significant investment in this unique farm was recently completed to further expand its capabilities and facilities dedicated to industry leading research innovation. With more than 70 horses involved in research projects, the primary focus of the equine facilities is in feed intake and digestive physiology, breeding and foal growth, and development and exercise physiology. Purina can formulate, develop, and test the performance of feeds like IMPACT® horse feed before they reach the market.
“Purina solidly bases its feed formulations on research. The feed has got to work, and the proof that the feed is working shows in how the horse looks,” said Dean MacElroy, operator of D&L Farm and Home, Texas. “With IMPACT® horse feed, Purina hasn’t compromised on the formulas at all. Everything is there. If a customer has a pregnant mare or babies, I can go to any farm and feel very comfortable recommending these feeds. I know they’re going to perform.”
IMPACT® horse feeds offer several benefits:
· High-quality protein for muscle maintenance
· Added fat for sustainable energy and healthy hair coat
· Nutritional balance, removing the need for supplements
· Formulated with ingredients proven through time and research to support overall horse health
“Purina is dedicated to creating unsurpassed nutrition for every type of horse, and IMPACT® horse feeds are a reflection of that dedication,” said Katie Young, Ph.D., manager equine nutritional services, Purina Animal Nutrition. “Our feeds are made with the finest ingredients and backed by research, so owners can trust that they’re feeding their horses high-quality nutrition.”
