Equis® Golden Senior

Complete feed

Life stage: Senior

Features & benefits

  • Equis Golden Senior is safe to be fed as the complete diet for horses unable to consume forages. This is advantageous for horses who may not be able to chew hay, may have respiratory problems or allergies, or when high quality roughage is not available.
  • Includes Alltech® BioMOS®, Diamond V Yeast Culture®, Nuwen Calsea Powder Advance at manufacturer’s recommended levels for your horse’s digestive wellness and immune balance through nutritional excellence.
  • Trust in the fixed formulation. Equis formulas stay consistent every batch without the ingredient switching of least-cost formulation.
  • Equis Golden Senior features SelPlex® from Alltech® as a natural yeast derived selenium source in response to the low availability of this trace mineral in some forages.
  • Includes Zinpro® 4-Plex EQ Performance Minerals®. Equis feeds contain complexed trace minerals including zinc, manganese, copper and cobalt. These minerals may only be required in small amounts each day, but they play a critical role in numerous metabolic functions that affect the health of the horse.
