Fiber Boost®

 

Everyday Superfood For Optimal Growth And Condition

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. This ratio is ideal to increase 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.

Slow-release, high energy performance feed.

  • Fresh cut lucerne and freshly kibbled barley
  • Builds top-line and condition
  • Balenced with superior protein and amino acids for growing horses

 
Fiber Boost
 
 
  • 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 the highest energy /calorie product within the Fiber Fresh range. It is therefore ideal to maintain body weight in older horses.

  • FiberProtect® Feeding Recommendation
    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.

    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.

    We recommend feeding a minimum of 2kg per day, but there is no limit on how much FiberBoost® can be fed.

    Feeding FiberBoost® at the correct ratio increases the digestibility of concentrates by 20-30%, therefore the daily amount of concentrates can be reduced. How much to reduce this by will depend on the individual horse and can be reviewed by regular condition scoring.

    Most sport/race horses do best on 4-6kgs of FiberBoost® per day in addition to added energy such as grains/concentrate feeds/balancer pellet and fat/oils.
