With minimal starch and calorie levels, Stud Balancer is perfect alongside forage for those who hold condition well or can be fed in conjunction with other compound feeds, or straights, where additional energy for condition or performance is required. Small frequent, digestible meals are key to reducing excessive glycaemic response and avoiding starch overload, which can be associated with uneven growth rates. The nutrient density of Stud Balancer means that only small volumes are required, helping keep meals sizes down and also benefiting those with reduced appetite. Yea-Sacc® yeast culture is included, to stimulatefibre digesting bacteria, along with Digest Plus prebiotic, which feeds other beneficial species, and the two work together to promote overall gut health. This is of particular importance at times of stress and for the fussy feeder.
