Total Equine was developed from science and experience and first produced in 2000. The nutrient levels are based on what has been learned through scientific research over the last 40 years. The physical form of extrusion and the specific ingredients are what horses, mules and donkeys need to maximize health, attitude and performance.
The base of Total Equine is alfalfa hay, which gives it the odor and flavor equines love. The palatability is excellent. When fed at 4.00 lb. per 1,000 lb. bodyweight, Total Equine provides the nutrients required by mature equines when fed with adequate quality roughage. The fiber level supplies 70 – 80% of the equines needs for a safe ration.
FIBER- Alfalfa hay is the main source of fiber in Total Equine PROTEIN- The protein in Total Equine is derived from alfalfa,rice bran, and natural oil meal. MAJOR MINERALS- Minerals are the main building blocks for bones as well as being important for all chemical reactions in the body. ENERGY- Extruded grain is the major source of energy in Total Equine. TRACE MINERALS - Trace minerals are the catalysts for most chemical reactions in the body and some are important for antioxidant activities. VITAMINS- All chemical reactions in the body that produce growth, reproduction, work and even maintenance require a catalyst or several catalysts. PROCESSING- Total Equine is steam extruded. This process insures maximum digestibility compared to raw, unprocessed or steam pelleted starch. SPECIALTY COMBINATIONS -Total Equine contains Tasco® which is a specific species of seaweed by the name of Ascophyllum nodosum. A. nodosum contains high levels of Fucoidan and Fucose sugar.
