TBone - 2015-04-27 9:35 AM Does anyone feed Forco along with Platinum Performance CJ?  From what I can tell, there doesn't seem to be any type of ingrediants in the PPCJ to promote & feed the good gut bacteria.  Also, my one horse has been on an antibiotic.  Is it a waste to give the Forco while on the antibiotic, since the antibiotic is probably killing good & bad gut bacteria?  Do I wait until he is done with the antibiotic, then maybe give some Probios to help repopulate the gut with good bacteria and give the Forco for it to feed on?  Or give while on the antibiotic?

bump...  anyone have any answers for me?

For what the cost of the FORCO is, I give it during any kind of antibiotic treatment. After a deworming and any antibiotic treament, I usually give probios for a few days along with the FORCO. FORCO works well with most any kind of supplement. I feed it with THE and I have a few customers that feed it with Platinum.

I feed the regular platinum along with Forco to one of mine. As far as the antibiotics, I'm not 100% sure . I'd probably just feed the forco along with the antibiotics. Someone else may have better insight on that.

obestobbe - 2015-04-27 12:05 AM I use it while I'm traveling as it's a lot like us using yogurt. Sometimes you need a little and sometimes more. But I always use it with my Animal Element Detox because it has been proven they both work BEST together!! There are a lot of sales supplements but look at your ingredients and if you can't say them or they start with Oats?? Your probably not getting what you think! Be AWARE!!

I will say I take the FORCO myself and use to eat Yogurt and there is absolutely no comparison on how it works. The FORCO is a prebiotic and feeds the good bacteria while yogurt has some live bacterias and introduces more bacteria to the gut. I get sick to my stomach when I eat yogurt and I have tried all the primo brands.

It is the one and only supplement that I have stuck with, I am a believer, my horses look great and they are on grass hay, a flake of alfalfa and 1 lb of oats per day.

It all goes back to a horse can't be healthy without a healthy gut and FORCO enables the digestive system to work as best as it can depending on the genetics of the horse.

I am on day 4 of forco. I am already seeing results. My filly didn't finish her grain yesterday. I bet she is full. My mare who had been real sick hasn't made made much of a come back until now being on forco. She has perked up and finally shedding that winter coat. I know it is working and fast too. I'll let you know how it is working on my ulcer prone mare. I am loving this forco already and can't wait to see the results later on.

So Nevertootold, how much do you take yourself? I have the pellets for the horses, but I guess I can smash them up. Really want to try this, I have IBS and really don't like yoghurt that much...
Oh, and how do you take it? Put it in water or something??
Thanks! Not trying to hijack the thread, just looking for some info.

I love FORCO.  If I could afford it, I would give it to everything on my property.  I feed it to a 26 year old gelding that suddenly lost about 100 lbs about a year and a half ago.  No other issues, just got bone thin.  Vet checked for worms (he is wormed regularly but checked anyway) and any other simple explaniation.  Decided further testing was really no financially worth it, since at 25 I could not justify an expensive treatment program.  I decided to love him and if he showed signs of pain, I would address that later.  
A friend suggested FORCO, he gained most of the weight back in about 6 weeks, and has been fine ever since.  If I run out and can't get it, I do feed yogurt, but try to keep him on the FORCO all the time.

I've actually been buying mine from the feed store, was cheaper through them than buying directly from a dealer.

How is Forco different from Brewers Yeast, or other supplements like Optizyme, Fast track, or Suceed?

The company says it best.

"
Two important aspects of total health care for horses. 
  • Feeding the horse a complete and balanced ration including proper amounts of hay, grain, water, vitamins and minerals.
  • Providing a proper and adequate source of nutrients which will feed, nuture and assist in maintaining normal and proper levels of beneficial digestive bacteria for a fully efficient operating digestive system.  This is where FORCO assists you in the overall health of your horse!
FORCO Feed Supplement Digestive Fortifier is a product that addresses the problem of providing proper bacterial populations and fermentation in the horse’s digestive tract.
FORCO uses highly effective yeast cultures and digestive enzymes in making FORCO Feed Supplement Digestive Fortifier . FORCO uses a formula that began in research over 25 years ago. This formula combines different cultures and enzymes causing a synergistic effect which makes the fermentative quality greater than if each ingredient is used individually.
FORCO Feed Supplement Digestive Fortifier  is a one of a kind product. It is one of the few pure and all-natural products on the market. It is dependable, stable, and safe. It does not contain live microbial or live-cell yeast, due to their perishability and inconsistent performance. It has no carriers or fillers and there are no supplemental vitamins, minerals or proteins. The FORCO formula contains only pure fermentation products designed to promote normal microorganism and bacteria population in the digestive tract of the horse."
