• Opti-Care Balancer

    Opti-Care Balancer is a nutrient dense balancer that can be used across a variety of feeding programmes. Opti-Care Cubes can be fed on their own with high quality forage or in addition to other feeds as a top dresser when reduced feeding rates are not meeting the micronutrient requirements of the horse. They contain nutritionally advanced ingredients and are cleared for competition use.

    • Low starch levels result in reduced glycaemic responses to feed and thereby decrease possible negative effects of insulin and growth hormone spikes during growth.
    • Feeding Opti-Care balancer helps to maintain a calm temperament in breeding stock prone to excitability.
    • Opti-Care balancer can be fed throughout pregnancy to meet micronutrient requirements and are ideal in later pregnancy where room in the abdomen is limited and mares need small feeds.

    • Opti-Care balancer is an ideal balancer for mature horses and ponies maintaining condition on forage alone.
    • Supplies concentrated nutrition without extra calories.
    • Ideal for feeding to good-doers where usual feed intake is reduced due to excess condition, thereby also reducing important micronutrients. Adding Opti-Care balancer ensures micronutrient requirements are still met where calorie intake is reduced.
    • Opti-Care balancer is ideal for horses on box rest and/or post injury/illness when combined with quality forage. Opti-Care balancer will provide important nutrients to help maintain tissue repair.
    • Opti-Care balancer’s low carbohydrate content helps to keep horses calm.
    • Opti-Care balancer may be fed to horses and ponies prone to laminitis.
    • Opti-Care blancer is highly economical to feed, at a feeding rate of 1kg per day a 25kg bag will last one horse 25 days when fed with forage.
