Product Summary:

Farnam® Weight Builder™

Farnam® Weight Builder™ is a high-calorie supplement rich in Omega-3 fatty acids and contains over twice the calories found in an equal amount of grain, but with none of the dangers. This powerful supplement helps support skin and coat conditioning while also providing fuel necessary for top-level performance.

Features:

  • Provides extra calories in the form of fat for maintaining body condition and fuel for performance without the risk of colic associated with grain feeding*
  • Contains flax meal, which is high in Omega-3 fatty acids
  • Contains protein, fat, fiber, calcium, and phosphorus in guaranteed analysis
  • Calcium : phosphorus ratio is balanced so it can be fed with other supplements
  • Also enhances skin and coat condition
*Specifically, colic caused by grain. This product does not claim to prevent colic, but reduces the risk of colic compared to feeding more grain.

Item Specifications:

Sizes:
8 lb.
28 lb.

Feeding Instructions
Includes 2 oz. scoop.
To improve skin and coat condition, feed one scoop (2 oz.) daily with regular grain ration.
For weight gain, feed two scoops (4 oz.) daily with regular grain ration.
Depending on a horse's activity level and condition, additional Weight Builder may be fed with no adverse effects.

Old horses needed to gain weight. I didn't notice much difference.
They were 36 and 34, and the older one passed away in Dec. 2015, it may
just have been his time.

can you use this for dogs?
A shopper on Feb 21, 2015
Best Answer: I am not sure. The container does not mention canines. Additionally i think it is pretty sweet and may not have the right protein structure to help a dog gain weight. Works well on horses though.

I justwould like to know if it in pellet form or powder form?
A shopper on Feb 28, 2014
Best Answer: it is a powder form, but not a fine powder, your horse will enjoy the taste my two do, I just mix a small amount of water and small amount of their grain mix in with it and they eat it right up.

Best Answer: The product label shows this is safe for all classes of horses. We do always have to recommend that you check with your mare's veterinarian as well.

Does this product make a younger QH Hot and spooky?
JAMIE S on Mar 4, 2017
Best Answer: We gave this to our 13 yr old QH/ Friesan cross. We had her on a pretty heavy dose. We did not see a change in her temperament, but if anything she was more calm because she was feeling better, not being so skinny and underweight. She is a older horse, but I wouldn't hesitate in putting my younger horses on it.

Fat content of this product?
A shopper on May 29, 2014
Best Answer: Listed as 40%. Easy to feed and doesn't cause colic issues the way grain can, or diarrhea the way too much oil can. This has kept my 27 year old Thoroughbred going great.

Is it safe for a filly?
shawna h on Oct 25, 2016
Best Answer: I have been using this product in my grain rations since Sept.2000. I use it on weanlings through my aged senior horse. It is cool calories so it does not winded them up while I am trying to supply the necessary calories for growth, work or survival (high needs of the aged). It has been very palatable, easy to digest and utilize for my horse program.
