Pro Mineral – Helping to replenish some of the most commonly deficient minerals in forage.
Pro Mineral has been specifically formulated to balance the common mineral deficiencies in your horses grazing.
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 horses diet during the summer months when you 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 synthesised 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 horses 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 grass is restricted. Essential Fatty Acids cannot be manufactured within the body & must be present in the diet.

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 horses feed is a reasonable amount to cover maintenance requirements.
Working horses will require additional electrolytes. Dissolving the salt in water & spraying on to hay, can be an alternative option for picky eaters.
Usage Level: one 25ml scoop supplies approximately 32 grams of product.
Suggested intake: 500kg Horse 1 – 1 & 1/2scoops per day. 300kg Ponies 1/2 to 1 scoop per day.
1 x 25ml scoop provides approx. 200mg of copper.
Do not exceed the above dose recommendations & adjust if other trace element sources are used.
Pro Mineral is a powdered supplement which we recommend is mixed in a soaked base feed. Suitable feeds are: soaked mash (alpengrun mash, fast fibre, pink mash etc), soaked hay cobs, beet pulp or a suitable soaked feed of you choice.
When feeding for the first time, it is recommended to introduce gradually over a period of 5-7 days.
