Which do you think would be better?

I have my late yearling on Ultium currently. She looks wonderful, etc. However, a friend suggested Southern States Triple Crown Growth formula. They seem to be very similar in percentages and such, but which feed do you recommend?

Hi Chelsea,

Stick with the Ultium because it is lower in sugar and starch than the TC product. This is important for his joint and bone health.

All the best,
