    Dunstan Race-Ease
    • Dunstan Race Ease is a high-energy Racing formula utilising a combination of energy sources to avoid complete reliance on high starch ingredients as a fuel source.  The inclusion of super fibres (sugarbeet and soya hulls) provide calories from low starch, quality fibre sources, not only to assist in managing ‘tying-up’ but also for digestive health.  Steam flaked Lupins contribute a low starch, high protein, high fat, energy-dense ingredient ideal for the working horse. The further addition of vegetable oil provides another alternative calorie source of key importance in the equine athlete pre-disposed to ‘tying-up’.

      Dunstan Race Ease is an Oat free ration, with the cereal portion provided as extruded Barley. The inclusion of Barleysupplies a in it's extruded form supplies a readily available energy source, but in a highly digestible form which is less likely to cause digestive upsets as a result of excessive fermentation in the caecum or hindgut.

      Minerals are provided as Glycinate Organic Trace Minerals resulting in improved bioavailability. This ensures maximum feed and nutrient utilisation, also aiding development of the natural immune system.

      Elevated levels of Vitamin E and Selenium are included in this formula, with Selenium provided in the more available form of Selenium Yeast and Vitamin E as Natural Vitamin E.

      Additional electrolytes as Potassium Chloride and Magnesium Oxide are included to aid muscle integrity and assist in reducing anxiety from Magnesium deficiency.

      Chromium Yeast is included as an aid to overall energy utilisation and as an agent to help reduce lactic acid accumulation, a factor often associated with tying up.

      The further addition of a live yeast aids digestion and increases nutrient availability as well as assisting in maintaining an optimal hindgut pH.

    • 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.

      Light Work 2.5kg – 3kg
      Moderate Work 3kg – 4kg
      Heavy work 4kg - 5kg
      • The recommended feeding rates for Dunstan Race Ease are based on a 500kg horses 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).
      • For horses pre-disposed to ‘tying-up’ if additional calories are required in the ration and the recommended intakes of Dunstan Race Ease are being fed utilise Dunstan Betabeet as an ideal calorie supplement. Dunstan Betabeet is low in starch and sugar and will contribute quality fibre to the ration.
      • 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 Race Ease 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 Race Ease make it unsuitable for feeding to sheep.
