Like the alfalfa (lucerne), green meal has a high content of high-quality protein and crude fibre. Green meal and alfalfa combined result in a very palatable feed. In order to yield an optimum crop of the highest quality, the grass is usually harvested 3-4 times a year, depending on the weather.
Performance Low Starch Muesli
Performance Low Starch Muesli
Low Starch Muesli is a supplementary feed with an extra low (6%) starch and (5%) sugar content, with added living yeast to balance your horse’s digestive system. The energy is provided primarily by an extra high proportion of fibre and fat. The feed has a high protein content and added minerals to more easily balance the overall ration even in small feeds.
Always give your horse access to forage before feeding it concentrate feed and try to spread its concentrate feeds evenly throughout the day.
- Extra low starch (6%) and sugar (5%)
- The low starch content is advantageous for horses with certain types of muscle problems, such as tying up
- Added Active live yeast to balance the horse’s digestive system – LEVUCELL®SC
- Full effect of LEVUCELL®SC already at 1 kg feed
- Complete feed with a high proportion of vitmains and minerals
- Without oat kernels
- Recyclable paper bag 20 kg
- Consider adding supplementary minerals to small-size concentrate feeds
ACTIVE LIVE YEAST – LEVUCELL®SC
Levucell is an active live yeast which is active in the large intestine of the horse. There it works to increase the digestibility of the feed and thereby also increase the availability of nutrients. The active live yeast helps to break down fibers and contributes to a more stable flora of the large intestine, which can have a positive effect on problems like diarrhea. Levucell SC consists of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae CNCM I-1077, which has both a probiotic effect – that is, increasing the amount of important microorganisms in the colon and a prebiotic effect – that is, contributing to a good environment in the large intestine to benefit the survival of the good microorganisms.

A suitable feed should be based on the nutritional value of the forage, the amount of work the horse does and whether it is pregnant, lactating or growing. A target value for an adult horse in light work is approximately 0.2-0.4 kg of concentrates per 100 kg of horse, and at least 1.5 kg of dry forage per 100 kg of horse.
It may be necessary to supplement a low concentrate feed with extra mineral feed. Spread the concentrates over several feeds per day for the best results. Always give forage before concentrates.
1 litre Performance Low Starch Muesli = approx. 0.5 kg.

Oat bran is, in fact, the bran of de-husked oats. It is known for its good dietary properties and high content of plant fibres and so-called beta-glucans.
Pressed beet pulp is a product from the sugar industry that is high in fibre but low in sugar without any added molasses. It has a high content of easily degradable fibres, especially pectin, and is free of starch, contributing to a high-energy content while promoting a balanced microflora in the gut of the horse. It also contains relatively large amounts of lysine, an essential amino acid.
The lucerne is a leguminous plant characterised by its high content of good quality protein and crude fibre. It is a drought-resistant plant that delivers up to three harvests. It is sometimes referred to as alfalfa. Lucerne is often included as a raw material in factory produced equine feeds and is also available to purchase as a raw material in the form of LUCERNE Chopped Straw, LUCERNE Pellets and LUCERNE Pure Pellets. LUCERNE Chopped Straw and LUCERNE Pellets contain molasses while LUCERNE Pure Pellets is completely free of added molasses.
Wheat bran consists mostly of hulls and fragments of wheat that remain once the starchy kernel has been removed and as a result, contains less starch and more fibre than whole wheat. Wheat bran has good dietary qualities and is rich in B vitamins. Dry wheat bran has a low density and is rather dusty. It should be weighed and soaked before feeding. However, wheat bran has a high phosphorous content which is hard to digest for the horse.
FLAKED SOYA BEAN (STEAM-COOKED)
Soybean is made up entirely of the bean and provides additional protein as well as fat and crude fibre. Steam-flaked soybean is steamed for 60 minutes, making it easier for the horse to absorb the nutrients.
Linseed is rich in fat and Omega 3. Each linseed pod contains ten oblate shiny brown seeds. Inside the seed pod is a cell layer of mucilage, the dietary properties of which protect the lining of the intestine and facilitate bowel movements. Linseed is free of starch. Linseed has a high content of protein while the content of essential amino acids, such as lysine, is low. NB! Whole linseeds must be heated before use.
Micronised peas are heated up for a short time. The shorter cooking time makes the nutrition in the peas more accessible to the horse but is not as effective as steam cooking. The nutritional attributes of micronised peas are primarily protein and a certain amount of crude fibre.
Contains rapeseed oil made from rapeseed - a high-energy starch-free feed that adds energy in concentrated form.
Soybean hulls are, as the name indicates, the hull on the soybean, the nutritional attribute of which consists mainly of crude fibre.
Carrot is a palatable raw material containing a lot of carotene.
Potato protein is, as the name indicates, protein derived from potatoes. Potato protein is a high-quality protein with a high content of the essential (vital) amino acids - methionine and lysine. Also, compared to other protein-rich feeds, potato protein is a highly digestible feed which allows the horse to absorb and benefit from most of the potato protein it eats. Potato protein is an essential ingredient in our products.
Sodium chloride, i.e. common salt, is used for adding salt to the feed.
