Dunstan Fibre Grow is a low-starch, high-fibre pellet, formulated to provide quality nutrition to the pregnant and lactating Mare and Young Growing Horse.
The low starch and quality fibre ingredients used in Dunstan Fibre Grow (Lucerne Chaff, Soya Hulls and Meadow Hay) serve two key purposes. Firstly, to benefit the sound growth of the young horse and secondly to aid the digestive health of all horses. A low-starch feed will assist to minimise the negative effect of insulin on joint and cartilage development. In addition, the low-starch and high-fibre composition of Dunstan Fibre Grow will help to ensure good hindgut microflora activity and reduce the likelihood of digestive upsets associated with high-starch or low-fibre diets.
A comprehensive mineral and vitamin supplement are added to Dunstan Fibre Grow. Minerals are included in their Organic form including Selenium from Selenium Yeast, and therefore are safer and more bio-available to the horse, for optimum utilisation. A balanced inclusion of Calcium and Phosphorus are also included at levels to promote sound bone & joint development.
As well as providing a quality high-fibre inclusion in Dunstan Fibre Grow for hindgut health, the addition of the live yeast further aids digestion and will assist in maintaining a more optimal hindgut Ph.
Quality protein ingredients are used to ensure good amino acid status which is of key importance in all breeding horses.
Dunstan Fibre Grow includes Mannan Oligosaccharide and Aluminosilicate Clay to aid in digestive comfort.
