One Product for All Stages of Life
Just one product provides the correct levels of protein, energy, minerals and vitamins for optimum growth and performance regardless of the life stage.

Quality Proteins and Amino Acids
Ingredients are selected for high digestibility and amino acid balance.  Synthetic amino acids are also offered to make sure there are no deficiencies for optimal hair and muscle growth in these animals.

Fiber Sources
Carefully chosen sources of fiber (alfalfa meal, soy hulls, beet pulp) have been added to assure a healthy GI tract for these herbivores.
