Dunstan Breed & Grow - Vitamin E

Dunstan Breed & Grow  -  Vitamin E

We are delighted to announce a nutritional enhancement to our Dunstan Breed & Grow Nuts.

Dunstan Breed & Grow is formulated for pregnant mares and young growing horses, which spend most of their time out on pasture.

With pasture well recognised for its contribution to many key vitamins in our equine diets, the amount of Vitamin E in Dunstan Breed & Grow aims to supplement the Vitamin E levels provided by pasture.

However, recently, when talking to horse owners, our Team have found that many of them are also having great success with Dunstan Breed & Grow on their performance horses.
In addition, young Thoroughbreds and Standardbreds in their early training are thriving on Dunstan Breed & Grow.

As Dunstan Breed & Grow is low in starch and high in fibre, horses are settled and able to focus on their early education.

However, the awareness of the extended application of Dunstan Breed & Grow made us consider how it could be improved to better meet the demands of these young performance horses.
So, we needed to take into account that many of these working horses have restricted pasture intake with time in boxes and yards, resulting in a reduction in the daily intake of Vitamin E, the very nutrient that is so important as an antioxidant for muscle health, function and immunity.

As a result, Dunstan has doubled the inclusion of Vitamin E in Dunstan Breed & Grow.

Now, when being fed Dunstan Breed & Grow, your horse will receive 250mg of Vitamin E per kg of feed , ensuring Vitamin E requirements are met even when pasture intake is reduced.
Furthermore, the Vitamin E in the Dunstan feeds is provided as Natural Vitamin E which is more bioavailable than synthetic Vitamin E , improving its potency.

For horses that are still out on good New Zealand green pastures there are no concerns with providing this additional Vitamin E to the diet.
