Kristie is proud to be working with the Dunstan Team who are a fantastic bunch of like-minded equine enthusiasts!
Dunstan has a long tradition of producing quality Equine Feeds in Equine Safe facilities which is something to be proud of. She really enjoys working with clients to find solutions for their horse and horse feed challenges.
“Feeding fibre – make sure your horse is getting a minimum of 1% to 1.5% of its bodyweight in roughage per day. So a 500kg horse needs 5.0kg to 7.5kg of fibre each day. Where to source fibre? Pasture, hay, chaffs, ensiled products such as Equifibre, and the super fibre Dunstan Betabeet Flakes or Sugarbeet Flakes (which is a good source of calories as well as fibre). Dunstan also has some fabulous complete feeds that are high in fibre such as Dunstan Breed & Grow, Dunstan Maxim Low-GI and for the more senior of our equine friends, Dunstan Old Horse.”
