Dunstan Keg Fibre Plus

A high fibre, complete formulation for growing Weanlings and Yearlings, presented as a 10mm palatable pellet.

  • Premium Quality - Some breeders prefer to offer greater quantities of fibre to their young horses to help minimise any adverse effect from feeding high levels of carbohydrate which may compromise the natural intestinal flora of the horses digestive system. This high fibre product provides a diet of a lower glycaemic index which may assist in the negative interaction between insulin and cartilage or joint development: Dunstan Keg Fibre Plus is a high fibre pellet which lowers the consumption of starchy cereals resulting in a more controlled release of blood glucose and insulin providing a positive influence on bone formation and freedom from joint abnormalities.

  • Research and Results - Dunstan Keg Fibre Plus contains a comprehensive range of supplements used by Dunstan for a number of years in its breeding and racing formulas, proven for their ability to enhance digestion and nutrient availability and immunity. Organic Selenium Yeast, Organic Glycinate Trace Minerals, Live Yeast and a Mycotoxin binder to help reduce the effect of Rye Grass Staggers, and as a general insurance against pasture mycotoxins.

Feeding Recommendations

Dunstan Keg Fibre Plus is a complete feed formulated to balance pasture for protein, energy, minerals and vitamins and should not be mixed with other feeds or supplements without further advice. Good quality pasture or hay should be fed in conjunction with Dunstan Keg Fibre Plus 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 is a concern Dunstan Keg Fibre Balancer may be an appropriate alternative product to feed.
