EquiMate Lix Block

EquiMate is an "all-in-one" vitamin and mineral supplement for horses that includes strong prebiotic and enzymatic aids for better horse health and superior performance.

It is a non-molasses horse lick supplement which combines a complete vitamin and mineral package with buffers.

EquiMate is available in 50lb or 125lb free choice lick blocks.

This product works effectively to help support hooves, hair coat, joint lubricity, feed utilization, circulation and resistance to colicing.

SweetPro Feeds has designed these supplements to maximize nutrient uptake from your horses' feed, and minimize the need for multiple supplements. Horses produce less amylase, the starch and sugar digestive enzyme, than most other animals do. Therefore, the chances are greater for undigested starch from grains and sugar from molasses reaching the hindgut. This is where trouble starts. 

FEEDING INSTRUCTIONS

1)  Before feeding EquiMate blocks for the first time, horses should be well fed and have access to plenty of clean fresh water.

2)  Have one lick block available for each 5 to 15 horses.

3)  Provide an adequate source of good quality forage at all times.

4)  Place lick blocks near areas where animals loaf and at least 100 yards from water.

5)  Make EquiMate blocks available in more than one location in large pastures or where more than one water source is available. 

6)  If animals run out of EquiMate, repeat from step one.

7)  Other salt and minerals may provide free choice to balance specific rations. 

8)  A two-week adaptation will be required to establish a base consumption rate.

9)  The above feeding directions are general guidelines and will vary with the overall feeding conditions. Always adapt to your specific requirements.
