DEFIANCE SOUND STARCH
H4408CP

ABOUT THE PRODUCT

Defiance Sound Starch is a highly-fortified pelleted horse feed that has a low level of non-structural carbohydrates (NSC, 10.5 %).  The low level of carbohydrates inherent in the Defiance Sound Starch formula make this feed safe to offer horses sensitive to sugar and starch.  The combination of high quality fat- and fiber-based ingredients make Defiance Sound Starch an energy dense horse feed perfect for high performance athletes, breeding mares and stallions, and thin horses needing to gain weight safely. This feed is available in a 5/32 inch pellet.

NON-STRUCTURAL CARBOHYDRATES (10.5%)

  • 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

Upon first introduction, Defiance Sound Starch should be presented to the horse slowly.  A good rule of thumb is to mix ½ of the new feed with ½ of the old feed for 3 to 5 days.  After the transition, feed according to the following chart:

Level of Activity Defiance Sound Starch
lbs/horse/day
Maintenance
(<3 hours of work/week)
Up to 5 lbs*
Performance         
(>3 hours of work/week)
5*-12 lbs

*If feeding less than the amount recommended, then it is advised that additional vitamin and minerals be offered along with the feed to meet the horse’s total dietary nutrient requirements for vitamins and minerals.  As a rule of thumb, for every 1 lb of Defiance Sound Starch omitted, add ¼lb of Vital Edge Pelleted Mineral or 1 oz of Ranch-O-Min 1011 Horse Mineral, daily.

Always provide a minimum of 1.0% of the horse’s body weight daily in the form of forage (hay or pasture) to maintain gut health.  Note that the chart is based on the nutrient requirements of a 500 kg (1,100 lb) mature horse and is therefore a simple guideline.   Adjust depending on the horse's body condition, age, and level of activity.  Fresh, clean water and white salt should be available free-choice.

DO NOT FEED TO SHEEP DUE TO ADDED COPPER.
