Brandt’s Best Textured Feeds
All Best Textured Horse Feeds include a cold-process supplement pellet that contains protein, vitamins, and minerals. The palatability and size of this pellet help eliminate sorting and refusal, and ensure intake of nutrients critical to the horse. Heavy (40-44 lb) recleaned oats, cracked corn, and the supplement pellet are coated with a combination of molasses and vegetable oil to produce a dust-free feed. Best Textured Feeds contain yeast culture, which improves the utilization of dietary phosphorus and has been reported to improve milk production in mares.
Brandt’s Best Pelleted Feeds
All Best Pell Horse Feeds are fully fortified with protein, vitamins, minerals, and yeast culture. Cold-process pelleting with molasses insures a palatable, dust-free, and economical feed. Cold processing reduces the heat damage that occurs with steam processing and extends shelf life and nutrient stability
Equine Science Formula – Phase Feeding Program
PHASE I is specifically designed to meet the nutrient needs of the growing horse up to twelve months of age. This feed is formulated to minimize nutrition-related occurrence of developmental orthopedic disease and to provide nutrients necessary for optimal growth while reducing skeletal disorders. This feed contains high-quality protein that provides essential amino acids necessary for growth and development. Phase I is formulated with appropriate levels of calcium, phosphorus, copper, and zinc as well as other minerals for strong bones. It is also fortified with yeast culture, fat-soluble vitamins, and the B-complex vitamins essential for maximal growth in young horses. Phase I is available in textured form for greatest palatability.
PHASE II features the same attention to ingredient quality as Phase I but with levels of fortification appropriate for the yearling as well as the mare during pregnancy and lactation. Levels of trace minerals in Phase II ensure that development of the fetus and storage of nutrients in the fetal liver are optimized, resulting in superior skeletal development in the neonatal foal. Additionally, the strong skeletal foundation initiated in the weanling fed Phase I is furthered in the yearling fed Phase II. Phase II is available in textured form.
PHASE III is a scientifically formulated performance horse feed that specifically addresses energy substrate availability and muscle metabolism in the equine athlete. Energy sources utilized in this feed are selected to satisfy the specific metabolic requirements of the horse during both the anaerobic and aerobic phases of exercise. The mineral, protein, yeast culture, and vitamin levels in Phase III ensure peak performance and meet the micronutrient requirements of the horse in intense training.
25% KER PELLETS are designed as a protein, vitamin, and mineral supplement for all classes of horses. They can be fed alone (with no additional grain) to horses maintaining adequate body condition on high-quality forage (hay/pasture). In this case, KER Pellets act as a low-calorie, concentrated sourec of essential protein, vitamins, and minerals, which are often marginal in all-forage diets. This feed also contains yeast culture for optimal nutrient digestibility. KER Pellets can also be mixed with unforitified grains to form balanced concentrates for any class of horse requiring additional calorites to grow or perform.
