BlackType Prime is a truly unique, scientifically formulated, pre-digested high fibre feed for racehorses out of, or in early training
The inclusion of multiple sources of omega 3 fatty acids, provides essential energy while also benefitting soft tissue, cardiovascular and respiratory health.
Steam extruded pre-digestive technology, enables easy to digest ingredients, allowing for a lower feeding rate and maximum nutrient absorption and availability.
When introduced slowly, the highly palatable crunchy nuggets, designed to be easily eaten from the manger, stimulate appetite, chewing and salivation, combined with the minimal cereal grain and low starch formulation, natural support with gastric and digestive health maintenance is achieved.
Exceptionally high quality proteins provided through EQ Complete™, encourages superior muscle development, while easily digested fibres and oil support healthy body condition without compromising, behaviour, gastric or intestinal health. Complete with high specification vitamins and chelated minerals BlackType Prime can be combined with a simple chaff, or our class leading, pro-biotic beetroot fibre feed, Pink Mash, to create a carefully balanced ration.
