If you have a horse in hard work/competition and you are currently feeding the daily recommended amount of a processed hard feed, once Fibregenix Platinum Pro is introduced you should be able to gradually reduce hard feed by at least half as the approved probiotic in Pro will enable him improve his nutrient yield from the fibre in his diet. You can then substitute that portion of hard feed with things such as beet pulp, linseed oil or lupins.
Pro has a Digestible Energy of 12.3MJ/kg, so it’s comparable with other medium energy hard feeds but without the whole cereal and molasses component in it. It’s also fed at just 100g per 100kg of bodyweight. Therefore it’s possible to reduce the amount of hard feed being fed which will cut down on the amount of starch and sugar in the horse’s diet – a ‘win-win’ for your horse’s digestive system.
Alternatively, you can also try feeding a ‘straight’ grain such as oats or micronized barley alongside your fibre and Platinum Pro to provide fast release energy – often a better option as you can actually see what you are giving your horse and you are feeding one type of cereal only rather than a combination of two or three as seen so often in processed hard feeds. Just be careful with the amount of grain you’re feeding in any one meal.
Platinum Pro is non-heating due to its low starch and sugar content.
