  • Dunstan Yearling Mix is a full feed and therefore is formulated to be fed at a minimum of 2.5kg daily to provide adequate vitamin and mineral supplementation (based on a 500 kg mature body weight).

    If the Yearling’s body condition does not require an intake of 2.5kg or greater of Dunstan Yearling Mix then a ‘semi concentrate’ - Dunstan Grass Balancer -is recommended, to ensure adequate vitamin and mineral fortification of the diet.

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

    Yearlings 2.5kg – 4kg
    Sales Preparation 4kg - 6kg
    • The recommended feeding rates for Dunstan Yearling Mix are based on a mature weight of 500kg 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 Yearling Mix 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
