Everyday Superfood for Optimal Growth and Condition
For horses that require a conditioning, slow-release high energy performance feed
FiberBoost® is an oat free, specifically formulated feed comprising fresh cut lucerne and freshly kibbled barley, mixed in the correct proportions, being a 2:1 ratio by weight and balanced with a vitamin and mineral supplement. This ratio is ideal to buffer the stomach against excessive acidity caused by grain. It increases saliva production, slows intake, increases digestion and metabolism of both the grain and fibre portion, plus maintains healthy gut function and hydration. The unique process of controlled fermentation of the barley enhances its starch digestibility to a level above that achieved by micronisation.
FiberBoost® is a complete feed that does not require additional supplements or grains to be added in the feed bowl which makes feeding convenient and hassle free. Your horse gets the benefit of a premium forage fibre and a highly digestible grain all in one bag.
FiberBoost® provides superior protein and amino acids for growth and development required in young growing horses, equine athletes and those requiring a conditioning feed or top-line boost. The balance of protein and highly digestible slow release energy makes it ideal for stallions, broodmares, youngsters and sport horses wanting a safe, high energy performance feed. FiberBoost® is also recommended to help maintain body weight in older horses.
When planning a horse’s diet, the most important thing to consider is that the horse must receive an absolute minimum of 1.5% of its bodyweight in forage fibre – e.g. hay, pasture, and or Fiber Fresh. The rest of the diet must then be balanced according to the composition of that fibre and the physiological demands of the horse e.g. growth, lactation, exercise for extra energy, protein etc.
FiberBoost® is a complete feed and mixed in the correct proportions of fibre to grain (2:1) which means there is no need to add additional grains/concentrates or supplements in the feed bowl with FiberBoost®.
When introducing FiberBoost to the diet increase daily amounts by 0.5kg increments until the required feeding amount is reached as per our recommended feeding rates.
