Why no phosphorous?
This ultra-low iron equine balancer is the only phosphorous-free, forage-focused horse feed balancer currently available on the market.
Formulated for those who are already receiving sufficient phosphorous levels from their grass and hay.
We have used our vast forage analysis data set to formulate the best phosphorous-free balancer we possibly can, containing only the commonly deficient minerals, vitamins and amino acids found to be needed to help support and develop optimum equine health.
In addition, we have formulated our product so that it is the ultimate balancer covering all your horse’s other needs as long as he/she is on a forage-based diet and in maintenance, light or moderate work.
Under 1% sugar and starch combined. Free from any fillers or bulking agents, containing only the highest purity minerals and vitamins for the lowest iron formulation, and free from phosphorous.
Forageplus Balancers can be carried in a high fibre, fast soak feed or chop of your choice. If your horse is on a reduced grass or hay or haylage-only diet, then this no-phosphorous Balancer is perfect as it contains high levels of vitamin E to maintain antioxidant processes, helping to neutralise against free radicals in the body.
Forageplus also recommends the feeding of additional micronised linseed throughout the winter months, or if a horse is on a predominantly hay/haylage diet. This will ensure good levels of the essential fat omega 3 to maintain and support excellent health.
Under 1% in sugar & starch combined. Free from any fillers, bulking agents or preservatives. We only use the highest quality minerals to ensure against contamination with heavy metals, enabling high absorption rates. We use an ultra-low iron form of magnesium oxide in our balancers.
Oil 5.80%, Protein 17.35% and DE 6.70 MJ/kg (Please note these are in Kg amounts)
|Ingredient||Quantity per 80g|
|Magnesium (low iron magnesium oxide)||12g|
|Iodine (Calcium iodate)||4mg|
|Vitamin B1 (Thiamine)||100mg|
|Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine)||100mg|
The above analysis for 80 grams is equivalent to elemental values fed. The volume feed rate (80 grams) is not the same as the elemental feed rate values (above). Therefore the above figures will not equal 80 grams.
Our No Phosphorous Balancer matches nutrients to the forage consumed by a horse. Supplying correct levels of nutrients in forage, as matched to ratios determined by the National Research Council, is an important consideration when maintaining and supporting:

- healthy frogs
- healthy skin
- vibrant, shiny coat colour
- robust tendons, ligaments and joints
- a strong immune system
- healthy muscles
- healthy nerves
- healthy lungs and breathing
- a well-functioning metabolic system
- good fertility and bone
