Pro Mineral 

A fundamental equine mineral balancer, helping to replenish some of the most commonly deficient minerals in forage.

Our high specification formulas are carefully balanced using optimum ratios defined by the National Research Council. Targeting only the deficient minerals in forage.

Pro Mineral 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 Mineral is produced using 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.

Pro Mineral is an ideal choice for supplementing your horse’s diet during the summer months when your horse is predominately out at grass.

If your horse is on a restricted grass or a hay/haylage-only diet, then we recommend feeding additional vitamin E. This is because research has shown that vitamin E is often deficient in the diets of horses that do not have access to continual grazing on fresh green grass, as well as in horses grazing on winter pasture. Vitamin E is considered an essential nutrient because it cannot be synthesized by the horse.
Alternatively, feed our Pro Balance + supplement which has vitamin E added to the formulation.

Pro Mineral is also useful for those horse owners who want to balance their horse’s diet but are unable to formulate a diet based on a bespoke forage analysis.

Feeding separate minerals can sometimes be time-consuming, complicated, and expensive. Pro Mineral can save horse owners time and money!

If ‘exceptional’ mineral concerns have been identified in a particular horse’s diet by forage analysis, then Pro Mineral can also be used as a building block feed balancer for which to formulate a bespoke feeding plan.

We recommend additional micronised 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 the grass is restricted. Essential Fatty Acids cannot be manufactured within the body & must be present in the diet.

Pro Mineral is recommended for:

  • Balancing the commonly deficient minerals in grazing.
  • Strong hooves.
  • Healthy frogs.
  • Strong ligaments and tendons.

Please note our guidance on the use of Salt:

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 on onto hay, can be an alternative option for picky eaters.

    Great product but both times I’ve went to restock it’s been sold out. It’s also not just for a few days it’s now been weeks since my horses have been on their minerals which isn’t very beneficial for them. So in short the product is great and great value for money but the restock time is too long.

      I am sorry that you had problems with ordering this product. Our supplier did have a delay with delivery on a few occasions, due to a lack of production with covid restrictions affecting manufacture and supply and then brexit also initially affected supply, However, this issue has now been resolved.
