The very well known and respected "Dunstan" brand was developed in the mid 1980's when the process of extrusion was innovatively introduced into the NZ feed manufacturing industry.
Since then, the "Dunstan" brand has become one of New Zealand's leading equine feed brands.
Dunstan has worked alongside veterinary professionals to develop nutrition programmes for the New Zealand Equine Industry. The complete feed concept is applied to nutrition for young horses, from foals to yearlings; to racehorses; and to sport and leisure horses. This is because one horse feed will not meet the nutritional requirements for horses at different stages of growth and development, or at different performance levels. Dunstan is dedicated to providing diets that will optimise growth and performance in each sector by selecting wholesome ingredients and applying rigorous quality control standards to both ingredients and finished products.
Dunstan's expert team is always there to guide you to choose the best.
