Dear Equestrian community When it comes to feeding your horse, we want to make things easier; therefore, Equibran mash will now be replaced with Equibran pellets, which can be used as a complementary feed with a balanced horse feed. This product can be fed dry or soaked in water, allowing for more flexibility and a lower chance of choking when the product has not been moistened by mistake. Equibran offers an optimal fiber source with high-quality protein and is a natural source of phosphorus. Equibran, also known as digestive wheat bran, is low in starch and high in digestible fibre.

Jaarlikse ramaankope, ooiseleksie en die versorging en seleksie van jong ooie verseker genetiese vordering! Die jong ooie of vervangingsootjies dra by tot die genetiese vordering of verbetering in die kudde en verhoed dat die ooitrop se gemiddelde ouderdom nie te hoog raak nie. Dit word gedoen deur al die ooie wat deur die jaar op grond van ouderdom, swak produksie en lae reproduksie uitgeskot word, te vervang met beter jong ooie. Navorsing bevestig wat produsente oor die jare ervaar: Ooitjies wat gedurende die eerste 2 maande na geboorte goed gegroei het, presteer baie beter oor die res… Read More

In as early as 1891, researchers indicated that a lack of protein in the feed brings about a decrease in digestibility of particularly the fibrous parts of feed. Ruminants, and not single-stomach animals, use microbes (bacteria and protozoa) to help them digest food to a certain extent, and later the animal digests the more easily… Read More
