Feeding Instructions: 

Complete Hay Replacement: 

Feed 1.3 pounds per 100 lbs bodyweight for easy keeper. Feed 2 pounds per 100 lbs bodyweight for hard keeper or free feed. For complete hay replacement, split total amount into 2-3 feedings In general, do not exceed 6 pounds of any pellets per feeding. 

Partial hay replacement or in addition as concentrate: 

The first day introduce the pellets by feeding about one pound. Increase (resp. exchange) feed by one pound each day. 

Transition from all-hay to all-pellets: 

Every four to five days, replace one flake of hay (average). The first day, introduce the pellets by feeding about one pound. Increase by one pound per day until 4-5 pounds are reached, which replaces a flake of hay. Every four to five days, replace one flake of hay with 4-5 pounds of pellets for same caloric intake.
