Low GI Pellet 20kg
Low GI Pellet - A low-glycemic feed with slow-release energy for breeding, growing and performance horses .
Low GI Cube is a low starch, fully fortified feed for breeding and performance horses in a highly palatable and convenient cube. Scientific research has shown that low-glycemic feed sources produce more balanced energy levels due to lower blood sugar and insulin spikes following a meal. Low GI Cube derives energy from fat and digestible fibre, reducing the proportion of energy derived from starch, and resulting in a lower glycemic response to feeding.
The horse's digestive tract is designed to slowly digest and absorb feed. Feeds high in fiber, starch and sugar are absorbed quickly resulting in sudden changes in blood glucose and insulin levels. In addition some starch escapes digestion in the small intestine and will be fermented in the large intestine resulting in hindgut acidosis. Hindgut acidosis can increase the risk of colic, laminitis and behavioral disorders. Low GI Cube is a low-starch feed that may reduce the risk or severity of these conditions through minimizing sudden changes in blood glucose and insulin levels.
Elevated glycemic response may be associated with increased risk of developmental orthopedic disease, tying-up, behavioral disorders and insulin resistance. Low GI Cube is a rich source of highly digestible fiber, essential for maintaining a healthy digestive system and providing slow-release, cool energy.
Mill run, soybean meal, canola meal, soybean hulls, barley, wheat, canola oil, molasses, bentonite, lysine, methionine, limestone, dicalcium phosphate, magnesium oxide, KER vitamin and mineral premix.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
Mix Low GI Cube daily with chaff or feed alone. Grain may be fed in conjunction if a higher calorie diet is required. Adjust grain intake according to needs based on body condition, growth rate and available forage.
1 - 2kg Older foal (if fed)
2 - 4kg Idle horse, dry mare
2.5- 3kg Weanling
3 - 5kg Yearling
3 - 5kg Late pregnant mare
4 - 7kg Lactating mare
2 - 3Kg Performance horse - light work
3 - 5Kg Performance horse - heavy work
The above recommendations are for horses with a mature body weight of 500kg. Adjust according to the weight of your horse. If a low-calorie intake balancer pellet is required use KER All Phase Pellet or KER Gold Pellet.
