Horses were originally prairie animals that had to search all day for grasses and herbs to eat. This can still be seen in the structure of their digestive system: a small stomach and a highly developed large intestine. Today horses have to manage on highly concentrated energy feeds, relatively little hay and almost no herbs, which is contrary to nature. Cavalor Strucomix Original is a complete maintenance feed that contains all the natural raw materials a horse would have freely sought itself in the past.
Cavalor Strucomix Original contains Struconcept, which contains various grass and alfalfa types to ensure a supply of crude cellulose, which stimulates the intestinal flora. Cavalor Strucomix Original also contains Cavalor Pro-Yeast and an extensive range of herbs, including thyme, garlic and eucalyptus, for a positive effect on digestion, immunity and breathing. Because Cavalor Strucomix Original is a complete feed, no extra hay is necessary, although can still be given. Cavalor Strucomix Original can also be used as a replacement for roughage, in addition to energy feed, or as a supplement to energy feed and roughage.
Directions for use
Daily amount Strucomix Original per animal, in addition to sufficient roughage:
as a supplement – max. 350 g per 100 kg live body weight,
as an additional concentrate – max. 700 g per 100 kg live body weight.
The daily feed ration depends on work, breed and roughage ration.
Bags 15 kg
Horses today are fed large amounts of feed concentrates, particularly sports horse and mares that are in foal or lactating. Their bodies need help processing them. It is mainly in the small intestine that grains are converted from starch into glucose. When at every meal more grains are fed than the small intestine is capable of digesting, this step is passed on to the large intestine. Inside the large intestine, the acid value (pH) subsequently drops (acidification), causing the micro-organisms to become less active and causing poorer digestion. Active yeast cultures are the solution for this problem, as they stimulate healthy bacteria inside the large intestine and hinder malignant bacteria (streptococci). This prevents acidification (pH drop), which allows the micro flora to operate properly.
Pro-Yeast provides optimal digestion of crude fiber, intake of minerals, production of B-vitamins, an effective yield of the total feed and, of utmost importance, a reduced risk of colic.
Crude fiber is an indispensable pacesetter for the intestines. Crude fiber ensures that the energy contained in the nutrients is gradually released. Health-supporting intestinal bacteria inside the large bowel transform these fibers into volatile fatty acids that serve as an energy source for the body. This type of energy, which is released slowly, is the perfect supplement for horses requiring considerable stamina to take part in a variety of horse trials such as endurance, three-day eventing, combined driving and trekking. The intestinal flora also greatly benefit from crude fiber. It has an effect on water resorption, thereby counteracting diarrhea. Furthermore, crude fiber thwarts the formation of salmonella and clostridia bacteria. The crude fiber that is part of Cavalor Struconcept originates from high-grade sources such as alfalfa stems, spelt and flax fibers.
Omega 3 fatty acids not only benefit humans. They are just as beneficial for horses, offering a propitious effect on their health and condition. In addition to a glossy coat, omega 3 fatty acids offer a wide number of healthful effects. Omega 3 fatty acids are immunity stimulants; serve as inflammation inhibitors; prevent the blood from clotting while prompting improved blood circulation and act as a defense against a host of allergies. This unique fatty acid composition supports the general condition of the horse.
This unique composition of herbs (including mint, thyme and garlic) provides a tasty mixture that even the most picky eaters will happily accept. Moreover, these herbs support respiration, digestion and the body’s natural resistance. The Air-Force herbal mix opens up the airways, thereby promoting the supply of oxygen, making the horse feel good. Garlic supports the animal’s health, as it is a source of allicin, a natural product that kills off noxious bacteria. Moreover, garlic offers natural protection against intestinal parasites.
