Opti-Care Balancer is a nutrient dense balancer that can be used across a variety of feeding programmes. Opti-Care Cubes can be fed on their own with high quality forage or in addition to other feeds as a top dresser when reduced feeding rates are not meeting the micronutrient requirements of the horse. This balancer contains nutritionally advanced ingredients that are cleared for competition use. GAIN Opti-Care Balancer is ideal for breeding stock, mares, foals, yearlings and stallions. It supplies quality amino acids to nutritionally support balanced growth and development of the musculoskeletal system. Low starch levels result in reduced glycaemic responses to feed and thereby decrease possible negative effects of insulin and growth hormone spikes during growth. Feeding Opti-Care balancer helps to maintain a calm temperament in breeding stock prone to excitability. Opti-Care balancer can be fed throughout pregnancy to meet micronutrient requirements and are ideal in later pregnancy where room in the abdomen is limited and mares need small feeds.
Mature Horse and Ponies Key Benefits
Opti-Care balancer is an ideal balancer for mature horses and ponies maintaining condition on forage alone. It supplies concentrated nutrition without extra calories. Ideal for feeding to good-doers where usual feed intake is reduced due to excess condition, thereby also reducing important micronutrients. Adding Opti-Care balancer ensures micronutrient requirements are still met where calorie intake is reduced.
This balancer can also be used for horses on box rest and/or post injury/illness when combined with quality forage. Opti-Care balancer will provide important nutrients to help maintain tissue repair. The low carbohydrate content helps to keep horses calm.
Opti-Care balancer may be fed to horses and ponies prone to laminitis. It is highly economical to feed, at a feeding rate of 1kg per day a 25kg bag will last one horse 25 days when fed with forage. Trace mineral content of pasture is often variable and feeding Opti-Care balancer helps to ensure micronutrient needs are met throughout the year.
