  • Dunstan Coolfeed is a highly palatable, high-fibre textured feed. It is ideal for horses that are spelling, in light work and those that don’t require a calorie-dense feed to maintain body condition.

    In addition, its high inclusion of Oaten/Barley straw makes it a great inclusion to the ration when pasture and fibre sources may be limited.

    The inclusion of cooked extruded cereals supplies calories in a highly digestible form which is less likely to cause digestive upsets as a result of excessive fermentation in the caecum or hindgut.

    The Vegetable Oil included in Dunstan Coolfeed will assist to enhance skin and coat condition and provides ‘cool calories’.

    Dunstan Coolfeed contains a comprehensive formula of minerals. Minerals are provided as glycinate organic trace minerals resulting in improved bioavailability. This ensures maximum feed and nutrient utilisation, also aiding the development of the natural immune system.

    Organic Selenium as Selenium Yeast is included to provide a highly available and safe form of Selenium.

    Dunstan Coolfeed includes highly bioavailable Natural Vitamin E.

  • Amounts per horse per day when offered as the full feed:

    The recommended feeding rates are based on a 500kg horse and are guidelines only.

    Spelling2kg
    Light Work2kg – 3kg
    Moderate Work3kg – 4kg plus
    • The recommended feeding rates for Dunstan Coolfeed are based on a 500kg horse and are guidelines only. Daily feed amounts will vary depending on pasture availability and body condition. Horses are very much individuals with different metabolic efficiencies, some require a little more, others a little less, for the same level of activity.
       
    • Ensure adequate fibre intakes by providing 1 % - 1 .5% per day of the horse's body weight as chaff, hay, Dunstan Betabeet/Sugarbeet or pasture (on a Dry Matter basis).
       
    • It is advisable to split the daily hard-feed into at least two feeds, preferably 3-4, but feed no more than 2.0 kg of Dunstan Coolfeed per meal.
       
    • Always introduce a new feed gradually over a period of 7 – 10 days, working up to the desired feed intake taking into consideration body condition and work level.
    General Notes
    Always ensure the horse has access to clean drinking water.

    High Copper levels in Dunstan Coolfeed make it unsuitable for feeding to sheep.
