Why Benchmark Golden Oldies™?
When formulating a premium feed for older horses it is important to address the challenges of ageing by maximising feed digestibility and nutritional robustness - and wherever possible to provide support for entire body systems.
Important inclusions are the correct amino acid profile and the ratio of Essential Amino Acids (EAASs) to Non-Essential Amino Acids (NEAAs). Getting this right can be lifechanging for a cherished oldie.
Other critical inclusions such as Omega 3 DHA, antioxidants, biotin, superfibres, and pre and pro biotics all combine to combat the challenges of old age. When changing from a poorer quality feed to Golden Oldies™, the benefits can be seen in digestive health, general vigour, mobility and coat condition. If poor quality or limited protein has been fed previously you will see a marked change in your horse’s top line over time.
Remember if your horse’s teeth are showing their age you can soak your Golden Oldies™ down to a mash with cold water. Adding Benchmark Super Fibre Mash™ to Golden Oldies™ will provide an energy rich fibre source that is easy to digest and a great conditioner, particularly during colder months or when pastures are poor.
