Baileys No. 14 Lo-Cal Balancer Horse Feed 20kg

 

Lo-Cal balancer is a nutrient dense pellet containing all a horse or pony needs for health and well being but with a minimal carbohydrate (calorie) content.  Its quality protein provides the essential amino acids required to build and repair muscle and other tissues whilst Yea Sacc1026 stimulates fibre digesting bacteria, helping to improve gut efficiency.  The superior vitamin and mineral content promotes good health and supports performance and includes chelated (Bioplex) minerals which are more easily absorbed and utilised by the horse’s body. 
 
Lo-Cal balancer can be fed as the sole concentrate, to balance forage, or alongside reduced levels of other compound feeds to top up nutrient levels.  Whatever the time of year, your horse will benefit from receiving a balanced diet – if your horse requires few, if any calories, because of reduced work load, or simply because he is a good doer, feeding Lo-Cal balancer to maintain nutrient levels without additional energy will help keep his body healthy.
 
Good Doers
 
Often on restricted grazing or forage and little or no hard feed, good doers are frequently lack lustre as a result.  Formulated to be fed in small quantities, Lo-Cal balancer will provide essential nutrients that may be lacking through this regime, making sure the horse or pony doesn’t miss out and often helping them feel brighter too, but without additional calories.
 
Laminitis

 

Its low starch level (at around 10%) and small feeding quantities make Lo-Cal balancer an ideal option for the horse or pony prone to laminitis and the excellent levels of biotin, methionine, calcium and zinc promote healthy hoof growth and repair.  Customers are advised to contact Baileys Nutritionists to discuss diets for laminitics.
 
Working and Performance Horses
 
The concentrated levels of nutrients in Lo-Cal balancer create superb top line, muscle tone and overall condition whilst its low starch (energy) levels mean it is suitable for over exuberant horses.  Horses in light to moderate work, who maintain condition well, may find that Lo-Cal balancer as the sole concentrate, plus ad lib forage (grass, hay or haylage), is all they need.  For those in moderate to hard work, the elevated nutritional profile of Performance Balancer is preferable.  For horses who require a little more energy to keep them looking and feeling on top form, Lo-Cal balancer can be fed to “top dress” reduced quantities of other compound feeds or alongside straight cereals and can also top up nutrient levels if the hard feed used is formulated for a lower level of work than the horse is actually doing. 
 
Showing

 

The quality protein and concentrated nutrients in Lo-Cal balancer help create superb top line and excellent overall condition.
 
Condition

 

Adding Lo-Cal balancer to an existing ration will improve the overall nutrient content and this should be reflected in the horse's general condition.  Due to the yeast content, digestive efficiency should also be improved and, as a result, the horse may get more from the fibre element of its diet. If actual weight gain is required, it is likely to be more effective (and cost effective) to alter the base ration to one formulated for this ie. Top Line Conditioning Mix or Cubes.
 
Box Rest

 

Correct nutrition is important for the horse recovering from illness or injury and Lo-Cal balancer provides a balance of essential nutrients plus quality protein for tissue repair but its negligible carbohydrate content helps avoid temperament problems or digestive upsets.
