Dunstan Pasture Plus is an extruded mineralised nugget, formulated to meet the mineral needs of the pregnant Broodmare whilst at pasture.
It is important that during the last three months of foetal development, that the Broodmare receives sufficient intake of the important trace minerals, Copper, Zinc, Manganese and Selenium, to ensure correct skeletal development and joint soundness in the developing foal.
Pasture is usually sufficient to meet the nutritional needs for protein and energy at this time, and the need for supplementary feed is often not required to meet these requirements.
However, it is unlikely that pasture intake alone will meet the elevated requirement for trace minerals, and therefore supplementation either as a balanced horse feed or a specific mineralised feed is recommended.
Dunstan Pasture Plus is a cooked cereal nugget that contains within its formulation the Broodmare’s requirements for the essential trace elements, Magnesium, Calcium, Phosphorus and Salt. The growth amino acid, Lysine, is provided to boost pasture quality.
The provision of Copper, Zinc and Selenium in the more available forms as Organic Copper, Organic Zinc and Selenium Yeast, enhances the availability of these essential minerals, at a time when the Broodmares digestive capacity is often compromised.
Dunstan Pasture Plus is not a complete feed, but a mineralised feed concentrate to be fed in conjunction with pasture.
Dunstan Horsefeeds are produced in Equine-Safe manufacturing plants, ensuring a product of premium quality, safety and performance.
