Canada’s #1 Brand in Equine Nutrition
Horse owners across Western Canada have asked – and now we can deliver. Cargill Feed & Nutrition is excited to announce the official launch of the Canadian Purina Equine Feed Line in the Prairies.
Following up on the success local horse owners have had with the Trimax and Integri-T products, a line-up of 13 products, including feeds from the Evolution, Omolene and Equilibrium lines, will be available starting April 1, 2017.
Focusing on high-quality ingredients, and research-driven nutrition, these feeds meet the needs of a wide variety of horses from foals to seniors, trail horses to high-end performers.
The expansion of the line across the country is also being celebrated by Ian Millar, whose team competes at Spruce Meadows in Calgary, Alberta.
“The availability of this high quality and consistent feed almost everywhere in Canada is a great benefit for our horses,” says Millar, a 10-time Olympian and Canadian Champion who is known for being a true horseman, dedicated to the health and well-being of his equine athletes.
Feed safety is the most important factor in the Purina feed quality program. All bagged Purina horse feeds are made in Strathroy, Ontario, in a specialized facility that does not use or store medicated feed ingredients. Stephanie Poupart, Equine Portfolio Manager, says horse owners and trainers can rely on Purina for the safety, good health, and performance of their equine athletes.
“Our Strathroy plant uses the most advanced equipment and systems to ensure superior animal health and feed safety. We do not produce feed containing Ractopamine or any other medicated feed additives, and no medicated feed additives are allowed to enter the facility. This eliminates the risk of harmful drug contamination of your horse feed,” says Poupart.
Purina offers all horse owners equine nutrition consultation through Purina Connect. Jill Dickson, a Purina Connect Consultant with experience in equine nutrition in Southern Alberta, says owners can get personalized nutrition advice Monday through Friday online and by telephone.
“Being able to speak directly to a customer, to ask the right questions and understand the specific needs of their horse, enables us to ensure success when it comes to feeding,” says Dickson.
