PLUS PROTEIN

A concentrated supplementary feed that adds protein in a combination with fat, fibre and vitamins and minerals in balanced proportions. Can be used as the only strong feed where requirements are met by a relatively low feed, or for horses with higher energy needs in combination with grain.
Always give your horse access to forage before feeding it concentrate feed and try to spread its concentrate feeds evenly throughout the day.

  • GMO free raw materials, read more about GMO here
  • Recyclable paper bag 20 kg
  • Climate labelled
  • Consider adding supplementary minerals if feeding less than the recommended amount.

Feeding guide

A suitable feed should be based on the nutritional value of the forage feed, level of performance and growth and whether the horse is in foal or lactating.

As a guideline, feed an adult horse approx. 0.1 kg PLUS Protein/100 kg horse (in light work) to 0.2 kg PLUSS Protein/100kg horse (in medium/hard work) together with 1-1.5 kg of dry matter forage feed/100 kg horse.

1 litre KRAFFT PLUS Protein = approx. 0.7 kg.

RAW MATERIALS

SOYBEAN EXTRACT (ROASTED)

Soybean meal, the nutritional attribute of which is mainly protein. The fat content of the soybean is extracted and reduced to below the fat content of the soybean itself.

WHEAT BRAN

Wheat bran consists mostly of hulls and fragments of wheat that remain once the starchy kernel has been removed and as a result, contains less starch and more fiber than whole wheat. Wheat bran has good dietary qualities and is rich in B vitamins. Wheat bran has a high phosphorous content which is hard to digest for the horse.

GREEN MEAL

Like the alfalfa (lucerne), green meal has a high content of high-quality protein and crude fiber. Green meal and alfalfa combined result in a very palatable feed. In order to yield an optimum crop of the highest quality, the grass is usually harvested 3-4 times a year, depending on the weather.

OAT BRAN

Oat bran is, in fact, the bran of de-husked oats. It is known for its good dietary properties and high content of plant fibers and so-called beta-glucans.

WHEAT

Wheat has high contents of energy and protein but the protein is of mediocre quality and hence, not ideal for young horses. Wheat is a little sticky, a binding characteristic used in the production of pellets (together with molasses).

BEET PULP

Pressed beet pulp is a product from the sugar industry that is high in fiber but low in sugar without any added molasses. It has a high content of easily degradable fibers, especially pectin, and is free of starch, contributing to a high-energy content while promoting a balanced microflora in the gut of the horse. It also contains relatively large amounts of lysine, an essential amino acid.

ALFALFA

The lucerne is a leguminous plant characterised by its high content of good quality protein and crude fiber. It is a drought-resistant plant that delivers up to three harvests. It is sometimes referred to as alfalfa. Lucerne is often included as a raw material in factory produced equine feeds and is also available to purchase as a raw material in the form of LUCERNE Chopped, LUCERNE Pellets and LUCERNE Pure Pellets. LUCERNE Chopped and LUCERNE Pellets contain molasses while LUCERNE Pure Pellets is completely free of added molasses.

MOLASSES

Sugar beet molasses is a high-energy by-product of the sugar industry. It is highly palatable and a natural binding agent in the production of pellets.

SODIUM CHLORIDE

Sodium chloride, i.e. common salt, is used for adding salt to the feed.

RAPESEED OIL

Contains rapeseed oil made from rapeseed - a high-energy starch-free feed that adds energy in concentrated form.

POTATO PROTEIN

Potato protein is, as the name indicates, protein derived from potatoes. Potato protein is a high-quality protein with a high content of the essential (vital) amino acids - methionine and lysine. Also, compared to other protein-rich feeds, potato protein is a highly digestible feed which allows the horse to absorb and benefit from most of the potato protein it eats. Potato protein is an essential ingredient in our products.
