What is our Summer Horse Feed Balancer?
Our ultra-low iron, summer horse feed balancer has been formulated specifically for summer horse feeding using vast amounts of data obtained from scientific analysis of the many samples of forage we analyse. It contains only the commonly deficient minerals found to be needed to help balance a forage-based diet. The minerals used are of good quality to ensure against contamination with heavy metals and enable good absorption rates.
All Forageplus Summer Balancers are powders, are very low in sugar and starch, contain no fillers and only the highest purity minerals and vitamins. The balancers are best carried in a high fibre, fast soak feed or chop of your choice. If your horse is on a reduced grass or hay/haylage only diet then the Winter range of balancers are perfect as they contain high levels of vitamin E to maintain antioxidant processes to help neutralise against free radicals in the body.
Forageplus recommends the feeding of additional micronised linseed throughout the summer months 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.
“I can’t believe the difference in my horse’s skin and coat since starting to feed these minerals. His coat has a sheen I have never seen before and his itching has stopped. Thank you!” Lynn Parkinson, Lincolnshire
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 ultra-low iron forms of monosodium phosphate and magnesium oxide in our balancers.
Oil% 8.83%, Protein 17.65% and DE 7.80 MJ/kg (please note these are Kg amounts)
|Quantity per 100g
|Magnesium Oxide (low-iron)
|Phosphorous (low-iron monosodium phosphate)
|Iodine (calcium iodate)
The above analysis for 100 grams is equivalent to elemental values fed. The volume feed rate (100 grams) is not the same as the elemental feed rate values (above). Therefore the above figures will not equal 100 grams.
This summer horse feed balancer is particularly useful for those unable to take forage samples for analysis or those wishing to add further products from a base that contains no iron or manganese but good levels of copper, zinc and magnesium.
