Dunstan Maxim Low-GI

Dunstan Maxim Low-GI is premium quality, Low-GI performance feed. 

It is formulated using quality fibre sources to produce a feed that is low in starch and sugar, suitable for horses that get ‘hot’ on conventional grain-based feeds. 

The quality fibre sources included in Dunstan Maxim Low-GI, ( Sugarbeet, Lucerne, Soya Hulls and Meadow Hay) result in a high-fibre feed which has benefits for equine digestive health and they also assist in contributing to the horses daily fibre requirements.  The addition of a Live Yeast further contributes to digestive health, as it aids digestion and assists in maintaining a more optimal hindgut pH, therefore contributing to the overall health of the intestinal ecosystem of the horse.

The inclusion of Vegetable Oil provides a ‘cool energy’ sources as well as providing essential fatty acids for coat sheen and skin condition.

The inclusion of Glycinate Trace Minerals and Selenium Yeast ensure maximum availability of these important minerals.   Combined with elevated levels of Natural Vitamin E, the highly bio-available Organic Selenium assists to maintain normal muscle function and together they act as antioxidants to protect body tissues from oxidative stress.

A mycotoxin binder is included in Dunstan Maxim Low-GI as a general insurance against pasture mycotoxins

  • The above recommended feeding rates for Dunstan Maxim Low-GI 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, 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 good-doing mares in their last trimester ,feed Dunstan Pasture Plus concentrate as a replacement for Dunstan Maxim Low-GI to ensure adequate mineral intake
  • It is advisable to split the daily hard-feed into at least two feeds, preferable 3-4, but feed no more than 2.0 kg of Dunstan Maxim Low-GI per meal.
