Feeding Notes:

Feeding recommendations as indicated above 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, other a little less, for the same level of activity.

Ensure adequate fibre intake 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 hardfeed into at least two feeds, preferable 3-4, but feed not more than 2.5kg of Dunstan Speedfeed per meal.
