Manganese is an important trace mineral for whole horse body health. It is unusual for manganese to be deficient in the diets of horses as it is abundant in grass, hay, haylage and cereals. However where a forage analysis reports low levels, particularly for young and growing horses, supplementation is necessary.
Bioplex manganese for horses is a highly absorbable mineral source of horse manganese providing 15% elemental manganese without fillers or additives.
Forageplus does not advise the feeding of separate minerals unless levels have been checked through carrying out a forage analysis. The ratios of minerals are important and feeding one mineral without supplementing correct levels of another can be detrimental to horse health. If you are uncertain of mineral levels then feeding either a Forageplus Equine Balancer or carrying out analysis of forage is wise.
