    Information from Our Horse Experts

    Animal experts at the Purina Animal Nutrition Center share their knowledge about horses.

    Q
    What happens when the foal is weaned off of milk replacer?
    A
    Foals that have become well adapted to dry feed (formulated for growth) at 1 pound per month of age per day can be successfully weaned off liquid milk replacer at 3 months of age. Ideally, foals at this age should be fed a minimum of three meals per day. If available hay or pasture quality is poor, at 90 days of age, you may transition the foal to Purina® Equine Junior®, which provides both grain and excellent-quality fiber in a complete feed. If hay or pasture quality is good, then continue increasing the amount of hay up to 1 to 1.5 pounds per 100 pounds of body weight.
