DEFIANCE VITAL EDGE PELLETED MINERAL

ABOUT THE PRODUCT

Defiance Vital Edge Pelleted Mineral is a highly fortified supplement, designed to meet the vitamin and mineral requirements of all classes of horses in a small feeding rate.  Defiance Vital Edge Pelleted Mineral is ideal for horses that are sensitive to sugars and starch (NSC 11.1 %), are prone to being over-weight, or may be lacking in certain vitamins and minerals. This supplement also provides a rich amino acid and direct-fed microbial (probiotic) profile, plus a small amount of Omega-3 fatty acid from flax seed.  This supplement serves as a well-rounded “diet balancer” when horses are fed a forage-based diet. This supplement is available in a 3/16 inch pellet.

NON-STRUCTURAL CARBOHYDRATES (11.1 %)

  • Low in starch and calories - Made with fiber-based ingredients (such as Soybean Hulls, Beet Pulp, Distillers Dried Grains with Solubles, Extruded Soybeans, Ground Flax Seed, Rice Bran, and Soybean Oil) to ensure a low level of NSC.
  • Alltech’s Yea-Sacc® & BioMos® Pro and Pre-Biotic to enhance the digestive efficiency.
  • Alltech’s Bioplex® Trace Minerals  “Chelated” copper, zinc, and manganese bound to amino acids and peptides increase trace mineral absorption and improve the horse’s mineral status.
  • Alltech’s Sel-Plex® An organic source of selenium derived from yeast to help fight infection and disease.
  • Balanced Omega-6 and Omega-3 fatty acid ratio (3:1) Derived from flax seed and rice bran. Aids in cellular membrane function and repair.
  • Added amino acids and B-Vitamins To support muscle growth, plus added B-complex vitamins to promote proper immune function, hoof and skin health, and glossy hair and coat.
  • Caramel flavoring  To entice consumption.
FEEDING DIRECTIONS

Defiance Vital Edge Pelleted Mineral can be fed alone or mixed with oats (or any other concentrate grain mix) and should be fed in addition to an adequate supply of hay or pasture and free access to fresh, clean water.  As a rule of thumb, horses should receive at least 1-1.5% of their body weight daily in good quality hay or pasture.

Adjust the feeding rate of Vital Edge if feeding along with another fortified commercial feed.
