Provides a full balanced daily requirement.
Vetpro has customized the range of Mineral Supplements to make minerals more user- specific. The under lying principle that we are basing this on is that all horses need mineral supplementation. They are essential for the growth and development of the musculo-skeletal system in young horses. Adult horses rely on minerals for the maintenance of that same system. There are no grazing situations in New Zealand that can provide the total mineral requirements of a horse on a daily basis.
We can recognize 2 dietary situations where different mineral supplements are necessary. Which category does your horse fit?
1# Horses grazing at pasture and fed nothing else. E.g. spelling horses (maintenance) ponies and broodmares (non-pregnant). Then you will need Speller Minerals.
2# Horses fed hard feed and hay with limited access to pasture, and being required to produce strenuous or demanding performance E.g. racehorses, eventers and also late pregnancy and lactating broodmares. Then you will need Performance Minerals (See info below)
Equine High Performance Mineral Supplement
Horses in full training on high energy diets have an extra demand for minerals and trace elements. The same can be said for lactating broodmares and rapidly growing yearlings (pre-sale preparation). If feeding prepared feeds with some minerals included - check the list of actual minerals and note that unless the horse is fed the stated quantity eg, 5kgs per day then the mineral content will be less than the required daily amount. Vetpro Equine Performance Minerals contain calcium and phosphorus in approximately a 1:1 ratio, along with higher levels of all the essential trace minerals. Used at the recommended dose rated it provides the daily requirements of all important minerals and trace elements.
We recommend this formulation for all racehorses, polo ponies, eventers, pre-sale yearlings and late pregnancy and lactating broodmares.
