DEFIANCE SOUND STARCH SENIOR
Defiance Sound Starch Senior is a highly-fortified pelleted horse feed that has a low level of non-structural carbohydrates (NSC, 9.6 %), making it a safe feed to offer senior horses sensitive to sugar and starch in their diet. This easy to chew pellet also contains highly digestible nutrients so aging horses can easily break down the pellets in the mouth and in the digestive tract. The combination of high quality fat and fiber-based ingredients make Defiance Sound Starch Senior an energy dense horse feed perfect for maturing horses needing to gain or maintain weight safely. This feed is available in a 5/32 inch pellet.
NON-STRUCTURAL CARBOHYDRATES (9.6 %)
Upon first introduction, Defiance Sound Starch Senior 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 Senior
(<3 hours of work/week)
|Up to 5 lbs*|
(>3 hours of work/week)
(as the sole diet)
1.5 - 2 lbs per
100 lbs of Body Weight
*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 Senior 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.
