Introducing Forage First® GS

Between exercise, hauling, stall confinement, intermittent feeding, and high concentrate levels, an estimated 90% of all performance horses experience gastric distress which can negatively affect performance, behavior, and overall health. Performance horses endure all kinds of stressors which can lead to a suboptimal gastric environment. Forage First® GS is a gastric support supplement from ADM that provides the nutritional support today’s performance horses need for optimal gastric health. Its unique triple action blend of ingredients supports a healthy gastric pH while helping protect and strengthen the stomach lining.

Product Research

An estimated 60-90% of all performance horses suffer from ulcers and/or gastric discomfort, with the greatest prevalence in race horses. Although the primary therapy for EGUS is gastric acid suppression, researchers J.M. Lattimer, B. Whitaker, and M. Barrett compiled a case report to determine the effect of Forage First® GS on gastric ulcer scores in mature horses. On initial gastroscopy, each participant was diagnosed with grade 2 ulcers of the lesser curvature and pyloris. After 30 days of consuming Forage First® GS, gastric ulceration scores decreased in all participants and ulcers were completely resolved in three of the six horses.

Feeding Directions & Intended Use

Feed at a rate of 15 g per 100 lb of body weight per meal or snack. An average horse weighing 1,000 lb should receive 0.33 lb per meal. For best results, feed this product in 3 to 4 meals/snacks per day. Do not exceed 4 meals/snacks per day at the recommended rate. This product is not a complete feed, additional supplementation and clean, palatable water is required.

Forage First® GS is a unique supplement designed for equine to provide nutritional support for gastrointestinal health. While Forage First® GS is designed to help the performance horse that is in training, showing, or is being hauled regularly, it can be fed to any equine who may have poor gastric health.
