ORANGE SUPERIOR A Vitamin & Mineral Supplement For Mature Horses - For use in diets of working horses, broodmares, stallions and maintenance where additional supplementation of these nutrients may be beneficial FEATURES Yea Sacc®1026 Bio-available Minerals Organic Selenium Essential Amino Acids Enhanced with Probiotics SPECIAL INGREDIENTS: dac® Orange Superior provides a balanced vitamin and mineral profile for maintenance, broodmares, stallions, and working horses. Minerals play a critical role in numerous metabolic functions including: reproduction, bone development, nerve function, immune function, hoof, skin and coat quality as well as energy balance. dac® Orange Superior is enhanced with Probiotics. Yea Sacc®1026 - is a live yeast culture derived from the specific yeast strain Saccharomyces cerevisiae 1026. Yea Sacc®1026 increases fiber, phosphorus and calcium digestibility in mares, and increases gross energy, total lipids and amino acid absorption. Yea Sacc®1026 Improves milk availability to foals if administered for 3-4 weeks before and throughout the lactation period. Organic Selenium - Selenium is an essential nutrient that plays a critical role in metabolism, healthy growth, reproductive health, and immunity. It also acts as a powerful antioxidant to prevent fatty acid oxidation which can cause tissue damage. Research has shown that Sel-Plex®, an organic form of selenium, is more readily absorbed and retained than selenium in inorganic forms. Sel‐Plex® is the ONLY organic selenium to be reviewed by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration). Bio-available Minerals – or chelated minerals are those that have been bonded to two or more amino acids. A mineral in this chelated state allows easy passage through the intestinal wall into the blood resulting in increased metabolism of that mineral. dac® Orange Superior utilizes organic minerals to increase availability and enhance absorption rates. FEEDING DIRECTIONS: dac® Orange Superior can be fed with either fortified or unfortified grains. Fortified grains contain added vitamins and minerals and require a lower feeding rate of dac® Orange Superior. Feed dac® Orange Superior at the following rates: Maintenance: 2 scoops (2 ounces) per horse per day if fed with unfortified grains. Consult an equine nutritionist or dac® if feeding with fortified grain. Pregnant/Lactating Mares and Performance Horses: 3 scoops (3 ounces) per horse per day. Consult an equine nutritionist or dac® if feeding with fortified grain. Feeding rate based on 1000 lb horse.
