What is EVM TropiCAL Blend?
Equine Vit&Min TropiCAL Blend provides all the minerals often missing from the equine diet including chelated calcium for horses grazing high oxalate tropical or kikuyu pastures. It is best suited to mature horses at rest or in light work. For breeding, growing or hard working horses, EVM TropiCAL-Pro is recommended.
Equine Vit&Min is unique in its ability to balance the mineral profile across the whole diet.
It contains a blend of organic and inorganic minerals with added salt, biotin and Vitamin E. It includes chelated sources of calcium, zinc, copper and selenium. With added biotin and Vitamin E but no sweeteners or fillers.
Equine Vit&Min gives you the freedom to raise or lower your horse’s calorie intake (by feeding more or less grain, pellets, super fibres or oil) whilst knowing that the vitamin and mineral requirements are ALL being met.
Equine Vit&Min TropiCAL Blend can:
- Add calcium to offset oxalate levels in pastures.
- Top up the minerals often missing in horse diets to at least the minimum recommended levels (according to NRC 2007).
- Balance the critical mineral ratios across the whole diet.
Directions for Use
Mix daily serve of EVM TropiCAL Blend into horse’s slightly dampened feed. Unlike other Equine Vit&Min blends, TropiCAL includes a daily serve of salt which allows the product to be used as a loose lick since horses’ appetites for salt matches their actual requirement. Ideally, the product is best served daily, but when management conditions only facilitate free choice minerals, TropiCAL can be made available free choice in a free-draining container kept under shelter.
