A premixture for horses.
The ultimate equine forage balancer for Youngstock. Delivering optimal key vitamins, minerals & amino acids to support the growth and development of youngstock.
Our high specification formulas are carefully balanced using optimum ratios defined by the National Research Council. Targeting only the deficient minerals in forage.
The Pro Youngster 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 Youngster 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.
This superior powdered equine balancer has been specifically formulated to contain the commonly deficient minerals, vitamins and amino acids at the optimum levels required to support the increased nutritional demands of the growing equine. These key ingredients are critically important for building strong bones, tendons, ligaments, muscles, teeth, and vital organs.
Also includes Vistacell to support gastrointestinal health and integrity.
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.

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.
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 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.
3 x 50 ml size scoops (= approximately 140g) for a 500 Kg horse per day.
1.5 x 50 ml size scoops (= approximately 70g) for a 250 Kg horse per day.
As a guide a 1 x level 50 ml scoop of Pro Youngster provides approximately 46.6g of product. Therefore three x 50 ml scoops is about 140g.
How long will one 4.2 Kg pack of Pro Youngster last?
It will last about 30 days fed at the recommended rate for a 500 Kg horse.
It will last about 60 days fed at the recommended rate for a 250 Kg horse.
Pro Youngster is a powdered supplement which we recommend is mixed with a damp base feed, such as alfalfa, beet pulp, wheat bran and/or copra meal etc.
When feeding for the first time, it is recommended to introduce gradually over a period of 5-7 days.
