Pro Balance Plus
A superior equine forage balancer helping to replenish some of the most commonly deficient minerals, vitamins & amino acids in forage. Plus added B Vitamins and G.I. support.
Progressive Earth Pro Balance Plus is a superior premixture formulated to help balance the grass, hay, or haylage in your horse’s diet. Plus added B vitamins to support the health of hooves, skin, nervous system, red blood cell production, and the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins.
VistaCell is included to support healthy gut microflora and maintain correct pH balance.
Pro Balance Plus is manufactured in a UFAS (Universal Feed Assurance Scheme), BETA NOPS (Naturally Occurring Prohibited Substances), FEMAS (Feed Materials Assurance Scheme), ISO 22000 ( Food Safety Management System) certified state-of-the-art premix manufacturing facility. Pro Balance Plus is produced using the highest quality feed assured ingredients under strictly controlled production conditions and conforms to the requirements of EU and UK legislation governing the manufacture of animal feeding stuffs.
Our high specification formulas are carefully balanced using optimum ratios defined by the National Research Council. Targeting only the deficient minerals in forage.
Pro Balance Plus does not contain any wheat feed or linseed.
We recommend the addition of micronized linseed meal throughout the winter months, or if a horse is fed predominantly hay/haylage. This is for the essential fatty acids that a horse may be short of when grass is restricted. Essential Fatty Acids cannot be manufactured within the body and must be present in the diet.

Please note our guidance on the use of Salt: We do not add salt directly to our formulations.
Chloride in salt is naturally quite abrasive. So adding salt can lead to rapid degradation of vitamins used in our mixes if exposed to light, moisture and heat etc.
The addition of salt could considerably reduce the shelf life of our products. Our products are packed and sealed in carefully controlled packing facilities at our mixing house. We cannot guarantee how products are stored once opened by our customers.
We have a fast turnover of products and all our mixes benefit from long shelf lives. Customers can feel confident that their products will remain fresh and free from degradation.
Our Balancers and Premixes are formulated with the specialist guidance of World-leading nutritionists at the Professional Mixing House Company we use.
We recommend all horses should have free access to salt. However, a salt lick alone cannot be relied upon to cover maintenance & sweat requirements. Many horses do not choose to use the lick enough.
The amount of salt needed is variable depending on how much the horse sweats.
For example, a 500 kg Horse needs 10g of sodium per day (25g of salt) for maintenance needs, this is without exercise or sweating on hot days.
1 – 2 tablespoons of salt per day, added to the horse’s feed is a reasonable amount to cover maintenance requirements.
Working horses will require additional electrolytes. Dissolving the salt in water & spraying it onto hay, can be an alternative option for picky eaters.
