Highfield Stock Farm LTD. - Complete Feed
Highfield Stock Farm LTD. has been using First Place Feeds for the last year, switching from a feed company we had used for 6 years. We are a thoroughbred breeding farm that focuses on quality versus quantity. We have all ages: foals, weanlings, yearlings, two year olds, race horses, retirees, mares- maiden, broodmare, barrens, and a Stallion. The team at First Place Feeds has worked extremely hard to create a great feed for us and the mixture of horses we have on the property.
They worked with our hay and past grain, taking samples, to evaluate past issues we had, what our strengths were, and created a great feeding program for us. They continue to monitor our horses on a regular basis. I have seen a great change in how our horses look and the calmness we have in our barn. This calmness is happiness both for the horses and grooms.
For sales prep they provided supplements for specific horses that may be lacking somewhere. We use Top Gloss from First Place Feeds for weight and shine. Using Top Gloss has helped keep the coats shiny even from the sunlight they have been exposed to. Thier weight and height is great and compared to the yearlings in Kentucky we are on the right track. Our average yearlings height is 15 Hands and about 930 LBS.
Another result we have seen since working with First Place Feeds is during breeding season. We have struggled with some mares in the past getting in foal, as all farms do. This year we fed the Equi-Max Crumble Mineral to our broodmares and stallions and had great performance. We bred 38 mares with 33 confirmed in foal. We also had a great foaling season, they are all healthy and strong foals.
I would recommend First Place Feeds to anyone who would like to see some great changes and to those who may be lacking in some areas. They have been easy to work with, supportive, and helpful with every question.
