Cavalor® Strucomix Senior
High-fiber feed to prepare your horse for a healthy old age
HIGH FIBER FEED FOR THE SENIOR HORSE
The efficiency of the digestive system as well as the quality of a horse’s teeth decrease as horses age. As a result, senior horses need special nutritional attention. Cavalor® Strucomix Senior is specially formulated with puffed and extruded grains for easy and efficient digestion, high-quality proteins (easily digestible and faster conversion into energy) as well as a high level of vitamins, minerals and trace elements. Cavalor® Strucomix Senior is the feed that contains everything your horses need for a healthy and active life. Senior has a higher calorie content than Original and can be beneficial for horses with increased calorie needs.
TIP: You can feed Strucomix Senior to horses of all ages. Great for hard keepers as well.
HIGH DIGESTIBILITY THROUGH PUFFED GRAINS
By puffing grains we are able to improve the starch digestibility in the foregut from an average of 5-50% to 85-90%. These grains travel through the stomach and small intestine at a slower rate, allowing the digestive enzymes more time to act on the feed. More nutrients in the feed are released for the horse to absorb while avoiding any rapid releases of sugar and starch, which is critical for horses with metabolic issues.
COMPLETE VITAMINS AND MINERALS PROFILE
Not only do we use a balanced blend of high quality vitamins and minerals, but we are always careful to use the most stable versions. While the vitamins we use are always in the most stable form, the minerals we use are always in the most absorbable form.
NOT ONLY FOR SENIOR HORSES
Strucomix Senior is a great feed for underweight horses, as well as for pregnant mares as it contains 14% protein from high quality protein sources.
Research has revealed strong evidence that the active components in the yucca root have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. Antioxidants protect the horse’s cells against free radicals — molecules produced at the cellular level when the horse’s body breaks down feed.COMPOSITION Barley / wheat middlings / puffed barley / puffed corn / flaxseed / soybeans heat processed / wheat gluten meal / dehydrated alfalfa meal / alfalfa hay / cane molasses / linseed meal / pea flakes / soybean oil / corn ground / sunflower seed / calcium carbonate / salt / monocalcium phosphate / magnesium oxide / palm oil / vitamin A supplement / vitamin D3 supplement / vitamin E supplement / choline chloride / ferrous sulfate / manganese sulfate / calcium iodate / copper sulfate / zinc sulfate / sodium selenite / propyl gallate (preservative) / yeast culture Additional information: Feed Detail Sheet (pdf)
