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.
Supplementary feed especially adapted to older horses or horses of all ages that find it hard to maintain a healthy weight. A high-energy feed with extra high-quality protein added and extra vitamins and minerals in balanced proportions for older horses, as well as yeast for improved digestion.
Always give your horse access to forage before feeding it concentrate feed and try to spread its concentrate feeds evenly throughout the day.

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.
A guideline for an adult horse involved in light work is approx. 0.2-0.6 kg of coarse feed/100 kg horse and 1-1.5 kg dry coarse feed/100 kg horse. A low strong feed allowance may need to be supplemented with extra mineral feed.

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).
Barley has a slightly higher energy content than oats where the energy comes from a higher content of starch. The higher energy content of the barley (and maize) is not as easily absorbed by the small intestine of the horse. Barley has a lower fibre and protein content than oats.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Contains rapeseed oil made from rapeseed - a high-energy starch-free feed that adds energy in concentrated form.
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.
Sodium chloride, i.e. common salt, is used for adding salt to the feed.
