Dunstan Fibre Balancer is a semi- concentrate. This makes it ideal for the young growing horse who does not require the recommended intakes of a ‘full feed’ i.e. when there are signs of Developmental Orthopaedic Disease (DOD) type conditions or where excessive growth rates through high pasture quality and availability are anticipated. In these situations feeding a ‘full feed’ at the recommended intakes to meet key nutrient requirements will result in excessive calorie intakes.
Dunstan Fibre Balancer will provide the same high specification of protein, amino acids and supplements as Fibre Plus, but with elevated trace minerals. The nutrient -dense character of Dunstan Fibre Balancer ensures key nutrients are provided in a reduced intake of feed, to maintain the supply of minerals essential for bone and cartilage integrity.
The higher fibre content of Dunstan Fibre Balancer reduces the reliance on grain and therefore starch for calorie contribution. Calories from fibre means a reduction in fluctuation in blood glucose and resulting insulin in comparison to a grain-based feed. This effect may have a positive influence over bone formation and freedom from joint abnormalities.
Dunstan Fibre Balancer offers the combination of proven nutrient values to provide for good growth rates and sound bone and joint development, with the added benefit of quality Meadow Hay, Soya Hulls and Lucerne for elevated fibre levels, to benefit digestive health.
Mannan Oligosaccharide and Aluminosilicate Clay are included as nutritional aids towards maintaining digestive physiology for the horse at pasture.
Dunstan Fibre Balancer contains a live yeast culture to enhance the development of beneficial microflora in the caecum for improved nutrient digestion, in particular, Phosphorus utilisation, an important component of bone development.
Dunstan Fibre Balancer contains Selenium Yeast, the organic form of Selenium for optimum assimilation of this important trace mineral.

Dunstan Fibre Balancer is a semi concentrate and is formulated to provide for the daily mineral requirements of the growing Weanling and Yearling from a reduced level of concentrated feed.
Amounts per horse per day when offered as the full feed:
The recommended feeding rates are based on a 500kg horse and are guidelines only.
Always ensure the Horse has access to clean drinking water.
High Copper levels in Dunstan Fibre Balancer make it unsuitable for feeding to sheep.
