Feeding Recommendations

Good quality pasture, or hay should be fed in conjunction with Fibre Grow to provide adequate roughage intake. Regular exercise is an important management aspect to ensure correct bone and joint development.

  • Weanling April - October 3 - 4 Kg / Day
  • Yearling November - February 4 - 6 Kg / Day

Regular monitoring of weight gain allows for accurate assessment of growth patterns to avoid excessive growth rate which may negatively influence joint soundness. If excessive growth rate is a concern, Dunstan Keg Fibre Balancer may be an appropriate alternative product to feed.
