Hi-Fi Balancer is formulated for horses and ponies in light work to be fed alongside any of the Hi-Fi range of Fibre Feeds.
Following the news that some racehorses have tested positive for morphine as a possible result of feed contamination, Dengie can confirm that none of these cases have been linked to any Dengie alfalfa-based products.
It is low in energy, sugar and starch compared to traditional mixes and cubes and so is ideal for good doers and individuals that require a low sugar and starch diet. If you are feeding less than the recommend amount of a mix or cube you won’t be supplying the required level of nutrients your horse or pony needs. Hi-Fi Balancer contains concentrated levels of vitamins and minerals so that it can be fed in smaller quantities but still provide a balanced diet.
If you have fed either of our Balancers before you will notice that we have changed the format to a 4mm pellet. Product specification remains exactly the same, however you will now receive 15kg rather than 10kg.
- Molasses free – ideal for horses and ponies that require a low sugar diet
- Alfalfa – for highly bioavilable vitamins and minerals that are easy for a horse or pony to absorb
- Linseed – high in omega 3 essential fatty acids for exceptional coat shine
- Herbs – rosemary and thyme are added for palatability and as a source of antioxidants
- Chelated minerals – trace minerals such as copper are vulnerable to interactions with other minerals in the gut. Chelating them protects them so that the horse can absorb them more efficiently
