Dosage of Trifecta To My Quarter Horses


“Hello. I love trifecta. I have used it on every horse I have had and the results speak for themselves.

 Right now I have two quarter horses. One is around 1250lbs and the other is 1224lbs. How many ounces should I feed them. The cups that come in the bag are confusing because I don’t find them to be accurate, and there is a different size cup now.

 Thank you for your time. Best product ever!!!!”

Answer by Ph.D. Equine Nutritionist, Kelsey Johnson Nonella:

Great to hear you love the product as much as we do! Trifecta is to be fed at 4 oz per 500 pounds, so with your two quarter horses I would recommend 10 oz to each of them. So sorry for the confusion in the measuring cups. In trying to better serve our customers we are in the process of transiting our measuring cups to ultimately have a sturdier more accurate measurement, so thank you for bearing with us while you make this change.

If you weight your feed that is great, which allows you to manage their diet very accurately.

Thank you for your question and your loyalty.

    I was wondering if the 8 ounces should be fed at one feeding or 4 ounces in the am and 4 in the evening.

      You can feed it whichever works easiest for you. Some people find for best palatability, feeding 4 ounces in the morning and then again in the evening works best for them. However, if you have no issues with palatability and you only grain your horse once a day, you are welcome to feed the 8 ounces in one setting with no adverse side affects. Thank you for the question.
