Dunstan Extruded Rice
 
 
  • Dunstan Extruded Rice with Rice Bran Oil is formed through the extrusion of polished white rice after mixing with Rice Bran Oil.

    Extruded Rice, like the cereals Maize, Barley and Oats, is a carbohydrate source, noted for its calorie dense addition to the ration, therefore making it ideal for weight gain.

    Rice is often said to be ' Anti-Allergenic' and for animals that react to Gluten, rice is often used as the cereal of choice.

    Rice Bran Oil is included in this product to complement the energy status of Rice. However, within Rice Bran Oil is a natural compound, Gamma Oryzanol, known for its effect on muscle integrity and development.

    Extruded Rice plus Rice Bran Oil is well digested by the horse and therefore provides a very safe way to feed a calorie-dense grain, reducing the risk of hind-gut fermentation which often leads to digestive upset or colic.

    The extrusion of Rice to gelatinise the starch offers further opportunity for enhanced digestion.

    • The recommended feeding rates for Dunstan Extruded Rice 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).
       
    • It is advisable to split the daily hard-feed into at least two feeds, preferably 3-4, however, feed no more than 2kg of concentrate per feed.
       
    • 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.
