Select I & II are made using the finest ingredients with the highest bioavailability, no “secret” or “super” ingredients.

Select I &II formulas provide significant amounts of nutrients in a proper balance.
Conventional wisdom has it that a healthy horse, fed a common sense diet of good quality grain and hay, does not need supplements. That may not always be true. When you buy a vitamin/mineral supplement you buy insurance for your horse unless:
• Your horse has a specifically known deficiency.
• Your veterinarian or nutrishionist has diagnosed a nutritional related disease.
• You know your soil is lacking in some vital mineral.
This insurance becomes a “Good Buy” especially when you are feeding a growing youngster, a mare in foal or lactating, or a performance horse that is transported or shown. Considering the cost of feeding a fortified feed, a good basic ration supplemented with a god vitamin/mineral supplement is usually the least cost ration.
|Why Expired Dating?
There is no way to determine, from the appearance of a product its vitamin potency. Equine vitamin and minerals are not different from their human counterparts, when you mix the two together you rapidly deplete the vitamin potency. After sixteen (16) months the fat soluble vitamins (A, D, & E) and beta-carotene, are far below guaranteed levels. For this reason Select I & II have expiration dating, eleven (11) months from the date of manufacture. This insures that Select I & II meets the guaranteed level of vitamins.

SELECT I & II AND MARE & FOAL I& II
Select Vitamin and Mineral Supplements are formulated specifically for the ration you are feeding your horse, be it an adult animal or a foal. If you are feeding alfalfa to your horse (even if you are feeding a combination of alfalfa and grain hay), Select I will balance your Ca:P ratio. It will also supply all the other vitamins and minerals required to keep your adult horse functioning properly.
If you are feeding grain hay, grass hay, or on pasture, then Select II is the right product for your horse. This formula will give the extra Calcium and Phosphorus to guarantee adequate levels for your horse’s metabolism.
Broodmares present a special situation. During the last trimester of pregnancy, a mare needs even more Calcium, Phosphorus, Copper and Zinc. You should increase her daily dose of Select (either SelectI or Select II depending on your feeding program) during the last trimester up to 3 scoops (4.5 ounces) per day. Adding up to one-half pound (8 ounces) per head/day of Mare and Foal (either I or II to match the Select I or II you are using) will insure that optimum levels of essential minerals are available to her fetus.
