Maxisoy+ Low GI Super Fibre Pellets

  • There are two major reasons for feeding Maxisoy+ Low GI Super Fibre Pellets

    1. As a fibre source, they are often available at a lower cost then chaff and beetpulp

    2. They are a ‘safe’ and ‘cool’ form of energy, making them a suitable feed for resting horses, horses in work, ‘good doers’ and horses prone to metabolic conditions such as laminitis, insulin resistance, tying up and cushings disease.

    “Super” Fibre

    The ‘super’ fibre found in Maxisoy+ offers superior digestibility over other forage fibre sources (75% digestible fibre) compared with most fibre sources such as hay and chaff (40-50% digestible fibre) These highly digestible fibres are known as ‘super’ fibres.

    ‘Super’ fibres like Maxisoy+ are readily fermented in the hindgut, producing volatile fatty acids which in turn provide a steady stream of slow release energy.

    Quality Protein

    A horse needs a daily intake of protein to maintain, grow and repair tissues. Unlike energy, protein is not stored in the body and must be provided in the diet on a daily basis. Improving the protein quality of the ration will assist in improving muscle development in growing, working and aged horses and milk production in lactating mares. Soybeans are widely recognised as the best quality vegetable protein source available due to the balance of essential (limiting) amino acids such as lysine.

    Maxisoy+ has a crude protein content of 16.4% on a DM basis with an estimated lysine content of over 10g/kg (DM)

    Low GI (less then 5% sugar + starch)

    Research has shown that the feeding of ‘High GI’ starch and sugar rich feeds to be directly linked to formation of conditions such as cushings disease, laminitis, tying up, PSSM, obesity, insulin resistance, equine metabolic syndrome and behavioural problems.

    Maxisoy+ provides dietary energy through fermentation of fibre in the digestive system and thus avoids insulin spikes and associated problems caused by the feeding of high GI feeds. By both glycemic index and laboratory carbohydrate analysis Maxisoy+ is extremely safe for insulin resistant horses.

     DIRECTIONS FOR USE

    Maxisoy+ should be introduced into your horses diet gradually. We recommend feeding Maxisoy+ in conjunction with a good quality vitamin and mineral supplement. Maxisoy+ is designed to be fed in conjunction with quality pasture and/or hay.

    Store Maxisoy+ in a cool, dry environment away from pests and rodents.

    Maxisoy+ is designed to be fed wet and can be soaked with up to 5 times water. Use less water for a light fluffy mix, and more water for a porridge consistency mix. Use warm water for a lovely winter feed!

    DAILY FEEDING GUIDE

    MAXISOY+ AS BASE FEED
    This guide is for horses being fed Maxisoy+ as their base feed. Horses that are stabled or yarded should be fed at a minimum morning and night. Paddock horses can be fed daily. Your horses requirements will vary considerably depending on your horse, the activity you are performing and the other available feeds (hay, grass etc) so please use this as a rough giude only and feed to your horses requirements.

    If feeding Maxisoy+ as your base feed we suggest mixing it with chaff and a complete mineral mix for a balanced hard feed.

    DRY FEED WEIGHT / WHEN WET THE FEEDING WEIGHTS WILL INCREASE DEPENDENT ON THE AMOUNT OF WATER USED.
    SCOOP REFERRED TO IS A STANDARD 2 LITRE FEED SCOOP (EACH SCOOP HOLDS APPROX 1.2KG OF MAXISOY+)

     

    BODY WEIGHT HEIGHT MAINTENANCE LIGHT/MODERATE WORK PERFORMANCE

    In addition to your hard feed we recommend your horse should have access to adequate hay and/or pasture.

    MAXISOY+ TO TOP UP HARD FEEDS
    This guide is for owners wishing to bulk their current hard feed and add condition to their horse. Horses that are stabled or yarded should be fed at a minimum morning and night. Paddock horses can be fed daily. Your horses requirements will vary considerably depending on your horse, the activity you are performing and the other available feeds (hay, grass etc) so please use this as a rough giude only and feed to your horses requirements.

    When complimenting premixed feeds please see their premix feeding guidelines to ensure you are feeding adequate amounts for mineral and energy requirements. You can choose to drop chaff and use Maxisoy+ as the fibre content of such diets.

    DRY FEED WEIGHT / WHEN WET THE FEEDING WEIGHTS WILL INCREASE DEPENDENT ON THE AMOUNT OF WATER USED.
