Maize provides an energy-dense supplement feed for horses with increased calorie demands for performance or when requiring weight gain. However, it is not a suitable feed stuff for horses in an uncooked state due to its lack of preceacal digestibly. The extrusion or cooking process, when applied to Maize, raises digestibility in the small intestine from around 30% to 90%. Therefore Dunstan Extruded Maize is a safe way to provide this energy-dense grain to the diets of performance horses, providing them with the necessary ‘fuel’ to perform.
The addition of Vegetable Oil during the extrusion process enhances the energy value of the product whilst adding essential fatty acids to aid cellular integrity and skin and coat appearance.
Dunstan Extruded Maize is presented as small discs and when fed in conjunction with a balanced diet for protein, fibre, minerals and vitamins, provides a highly available energy source for hard-working horses or where an extra condition is required.
Dunstan Horsefeeds are produced in Equine-Safe manufacturing plants, ensuring a product of premium quality, safety and performance.
