Comprehensive Feed Balancer is a very palatable ‘Non-Heating’ pelleted feed that is formulated without cereal grains and is low in sugar and starch.
It contains many supplements combined with good quality protein to promote muscle development and topline. The supplements include a top-specificaion broad-spectrum supplement and specialised supplements including a superb hoof supplement, generous levels of anti-oxidants and sophisticated digestive aids.
This superb specification allows horses to utilise far more nutrients from the forage and straights in their diet, which usually means that their hard feed intake can be reduced with many resulting benefits A complete specification is freely available.
Comprehensive Feed Balancer is a very flexible nutrient-rich feed designed to balance the rations of most horses and ponies simply by adjusting the rate at which it is fed and the products it is fed with.
When Comprehensive Feed Balancer is fed there is therefore often no need to add any further supplements, other than salt or electrolytes for sweating horses. The addition of e.g. blood tonics, yeast supplements/digestive aids, or hoof supplements is a totally unnecessary expense, ineffective and potentially harmful.
CoolCondition Cubes provide ‘Non-Heating’ but conditioning calories and are ideal for horses that need condition without ‘fizz.’
CoolCondition Cubes are designed to be added to a TopSpec feed balancer or supplement and therefore contain no added vitamins or trace-elements. That is why we call them a ‘blend,’ because they are a blend of straight raw materials rather than a complete feed. Adjusting the rate at which CoolCondition Cubes are fed will have no effect on vitamin and trace-element intake as these are supplied by the balancer used.
One of the ways in which CoolCondition Cubes are superior to most straights however, is that they have been supplemented with the major minerals calcium, sodium and magnesium. For example, feeding these cubes instead of cooked barley/sugar beet/alfalfa, to working horses reduces or eliminates the need to add salt.
CoolCondition Cubes combine the brilliant properties of being seriously cool and seriously conditioning, this is a very rare combination.
They are formulated without the use of any cereals, so they are not just ‘oat-free’ or ‘barley-free’ but completely cereal-grain-free. At the same time they have a good conditioning index of 12.5MJ/kg, equivalent to most cereal-containing conditioning compound feeds. The formula is very low in sugar and starch and high in fibre.
UlsaKind provides nutritional support for horses susceptible to erosion of the stomach lining. The ultra-low-starch cubes include scientifically-proven ingredients including â-glucans and acid buffers which help to maintain healthy digestive comfort and the natural integrity of the stomach lining. They also reduce acidity within the stomach for up to 6 hours. The stomach contents become gel-like, so less likely to splash; feed moves more slowly out of the stomach, shortening the time when the stomach is empty and therefore more acidic.
