ADM Animal Nutrition Releases New Forage First Summer Care Supplement for Working Horses

Quincy, Illinois (July 17, 2020) — Forage First Summer Care is a new equine supplement from ADM Animal Nutrition that’s formulated to help working horses combat the effects of heat stress and insects.

“Heat stress has been shown to decrease gut integrity and cause negative health effects like leaky gut syndrome,” said Michael Barret, consumer products business manager for ADM Animal Nutrition. “That’s why we formulated a new high-quality supplement that supports and optimizes gut health and deters dehydration. Here at ADM, we believe you should feed the best to the ones you the love the most.”
