Dunstan Extruded Barley
  • Dunstan Extruded Barley provides horse owners with a very safe way to feed this versatile grain to their horses for energy for both performance and conditioning.

    Barley that has not undergone a form of heat processing has limited digestibility for the horse and therefore increases the risk of digestive upsets associated with fermentation of undigested starch in the hindgut

    Dunstan Extruded Barley ensures improved starch digestion allowing better feed utilisation for weight gain and performance.

    Dunstan Extruded Barley is a great conditioning feed and can be added into the existing ration to increase calorie density without concerns of further mineral supplementation in an already balanced ration.

    Dunstan Extruded Barley, when fed in conjunction with a balanced diet for protein, fibre, minerals and vitamins, provides a highly available energy source for either work output or where an extra condition is required.

    The addition of Vegetable Oil further boosts calorie density and enhances skin and coat quality.
