Why High Cal®?

10_elements-for-BioMare-product-page-mockup_Jan18.png

Formulated specifically for horses grazing high oxalate (calcium binding), subtropical pastures where chronic calcium deficiency and ‘Bighead Disease’ are a risk.

13_elements-for-BioMare-product-page-mockup_Jan18.png

Extra calcium and magnesium counteract the negative effect of high oxalate pastures on the bioavailability of these minerals to maintain bone and joint health.

11_elements-for-BioMare-product-page-mockup_Jan18.png

Set recipe formulation with the same premium quality proteins used in every batch to support muscle building and milk production on subtropical pastures.

14_elements-for-BioMare-product-page-mockup_Jan18.png

Combines copper plus omega fatty acids from full fat soybean and cold pressed canola oil to give brilliant coat colour and shine.

Feed alone where weight control is required or add your own grains or any of the feeds from the Pryde’s EasiFeed range when additional calories are needed.

**Use your horse's expected mature bodyweight to calculate the correct dose. For example a weanling that will mature at 500 kg should receive 5 x 200 g = 1000 g/day.

Light Exercise: Up to 60 mins walking, or 30 mins walking, trotting and cantering.

Moderate Exercise: Up to 120 mins walking and trotting, or 30-60 mins trotting, cantering and some galloping.

Intense Exercise: 30-60 mins intense skill work, short duration galloping, racing and endurance.

For the Best Results

  • Introduce into a horse’s ration gradually over 2 weeks.

  • Feed in conjunction with ample forage (pasture, hay and/or chaff).

  • Make clean, fresh water and salt available at all times.

  • Adjust the amount fed so it is appropriate for a horse’s current activity and bodyweight.

  • Divide feeds into two or more smaller meals if feeding more than 0.5 kg per 100 kg of bodyweight in ‘hard feed’ per day.

  • The feeding rates given here are based on the amount of balancer pellet needed to meet a horse’s vitamin and mineral requirements. If you feed below these feeding rates, vitamin and mineral deficiencies will appear in the diet and may affect health and limit growth and sound development, reproduction or performance. It is best to feed this balancer pellet at the recommended amounts.

  • If you are feeding this balancer pellet in conjunction with one of the Pryde’s EasiFeed range of complete feeds the amount fed may be reduced. See the ‘Keep It Balanced’ information on the back of your feed bag for adjusted feeding rates.

Did You Know?

Subtropical grasses contain a compound called ‘oxalate’ that binds calcium and prevents it from being absorbed. Left unsupplemented, horses grazing high oxalate subtropical grasses will become severely calcium deficient. The first symptom is often a ‘shifting lameness’.
