Horses live in a wide variety of situations and are used at various levels of work so there is no simple answer to, “What do I feed my horse?” The main goal is to provide your horse with a complete, balanced diet with enough energy for their workload or lifestage. A staple in the equine diet is roughage and that can come in the form of hay or a complete feed formulated with roughage. Which you choose often depends upon where your horse lives, what he likes and what you like! So whether you choose a supplement to balance the nutrition of hay or a complete pelleted feed because of it’s convenience, King has an equine feed that will suit you and your horse.
Poultry:From broilers to egg layers, waterfowl to showbirds, there is King feed specifically formulated to address the nutritional and health needs of your bird. We offer pellets, mashes and crumbles to optimize feed utilization and our cleaned grains and screened pellets enhance palletability.(Source: King website)
