Chelated Organic Trace Minerals

Chelated Organic Trace Minerals

These proteinated minerals allow for maximum absorption and retention by the horse. They are designed to match as closely as possible the naturally complexed trace element compounds found in forages and grains.

100% Organic Selenium

100% Organic Selenium

Organic Selenium is more bio-available than inorganic Selenium and is better retained in the body. This allows the horse to build nutrient reserves against periods of increased demand with less risk of toxicity.

Added Amino Acids

Added Amino Acids

Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. Think of the proteins as words and the amino acids as the letters that form the words. If an animal is trying to form a protein to build or repair tissue and an amino acid is missing, the protein cannot be formed. LMF feeds use high quality protein sources in all of our feeds. Additionally, LMF feeds are supplemented with two of the most critical amino acids, Lysine and Methionine.

Natural Vitamin E

Natural Vitamin E

Natural Vitamin E, which comes from plant oils, is an important fat soluble vitamin that is not produced by the horse’s body. This vitamin must be obtained through external sources like forage, grain and supplements. Vitamin E: acts as an antioxidant, helps keep the immune system strong, and helps the body use Vitamin K.

Omega 3 and Omega 6 Fatty Acids

Omega 3 and Omega 6 Fatty Acids

Omega fatty acids are unsaturated fatty acids that are components of oils commonly added to horse diets. Omega 6 fatty acids are used in the body to help mediate inflammation. Omega 3 fatty acid is used to produce intermediaries that suppress inflammation. Both Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids are important in a horse’s diet for hoof health, reproductive success, allergy and immune conditions, respiratory conditions, and exercise recovery.

Yeast Culture

Yeast Culture

Yeast Cultures work to enhance fiber digestion and nutrient absorption allowing for increased for enhanced animal performance. By improving feed efficiency yeast cultures also help to maintain body and coat conditions in horses.

Magnesium

Magnesium

Magnesium (MG) is a mineral with many functions in the horse. One key function of Magnesium is the involvement with insulin to store blood sugar. Deficiency of Magnesium may contribute to worsening insulin resistance. Magnesium is specifically added to all LMF Feeds intended to be fed to carbohydrate sensitive horses.

LMF LOW NON STRUCTURAL CARBOHYDRATE STAGE 1

Feed LMF LOW NON STRUCTURAL CARBOHYDRATE STAGE 1 to horses at risk of carbohydrate intake problems. Stage 1 should be fed at a rate of 5-10 lbs. per day (for a 1000 lb. horse) along with low carbohydrate hay. For horses where complete control of sugar/starch intake is necessary, feed LMF LOW NSC COMPLETE as the total diet.

WARNING: Feed LMF Horse Feeds to horses according to the feeding instructions provided on the feed tag, or upon the advice of your nutritionist. Do not add other sources of selenium that cause total dietary selenium (forage and grain, combined) to exceed 0.3 ppm. Feeding additional vitamin or mineral supplements is not recommended when feeding LMF Feed products according to feeding instructions.
