Superior nutrition starts at the source.
Everyone knows that a healthy diet includes fresh, nutrient-rich foods. At BUCKEYE® Nutrition, we want your horse to benefit from the same level of care that we put into our own meal preparations. That’s why we work with only a limited number of vendors who we know and trust. Harvested from the rich Ohio soil to the fertile Canadian plains, our exclusively sourced ingredients are:
- 100% Traceable
- From certified suppliers
- Compliant with our nutrient specifications
- Adherent to stringent quality standards
We take our traceability promise seriously.
BUCKEYE® Nutrition inspects every single truckload that arrives at our plant. Prior to unloading, each ingredient is sampled, tested and checked under a microscope for potential toxins. If a product does not meet our strict quality standards, we reject the load. All so you can trust the quality and safety of every soybean, kernel of corn or scoop of premium oats that goes into your horse’s feed bucket.
Promote horse health with fixed formulations.
Horses are strong, powerful animals, but their digestive systems require delicately regulated nutrition. Even small changes to your horse’s diet can cause gut, colic, ulcer or other issues. At BUCKEYE® Nutrition, we care more about your horse than our own profit margin. A company born out of love rather than profit, we never compromise the integrity of our ingredients to make a buck. While many other brands change their ingredients based on grain prices, BUCKEYE® Nutrition ingredients remain fixed for the consistency your horse needs and the quality you trust.
We ensure bag-to-bag consistency.
With any BUCKEYE® Nutrition formulation, you know exactly what you’re getting – each ingredient is printed right on the bag. And, with fixed formulation, that list never changes. Whether it’s January or July, whether you’re in New York or Florida, you can be confident your horse is eating the same blend of premium ingredients you know and trust.
A single plant means consistent quality control.
BUCKEYE® Nutrition manufactures all of our formulations from one family-owned location with LRQA and Safe Feed/Safe Food certifications. This gives us total control over our rigid inbound testing procedures, including mycotoxin testing prior to unload. We enforce a clean medication- and ionophore-free facility. And, our in-house quality associates perform assessments every day to ensure all BUCKEYE® Nutrition products meet strict visual, texture and aroma standards before leaving our doors.
GRO 'N WIN®
Not all forage is created equal. That's why GRO 'N WIN® is the perfect ration balancer to complement your horse's forage. Created to be fed as a stand-alone feed or a supplement to your horse's daily grain diet, it is formulated with a precise balance of amino acids, vitamins and minerals for easy digestion and absorption. GRO 'N WIN® is highly concentrated, so you feed less of it, allowing your horse to eat more naturally. Ideal for growth, reproduction, performance, and maintenance horses, GRO 'N WIN® along with forage will supply your horse with all the essential nutrients it needs without excess calories or use of additional supplements.

Senior Pelleted is a complete feed designed for older horses with poor teeth that can no longer eat long-stemmed forage and are difficult to keep in good condition.
The high level of digestible fiber makes it safe to feed at high amounts to supply the fiber no longer available from hay. The lower starch and sugar formula can help lessen hyperactivity and negative metabolic effects. Added vitamin E and selenium help to support immune function. Fortified with GRO 'N WIN® technology, Senior Pelleted supplies essential vitamins and chelated minerals along with balanced essential amino acids for superior protein quality to help maintain your aging horse's muscle tone and topline.
