Vapour extrusion feed has several major benefits over its conventional equivalents, confectionery and pet food. First, because vapour extrusion is about twice the size and half the density of a cereal mixture or granulated aggregate of the same ingredient, most equines need up to 32% longer to feed.
Horse are also less inclined to lock their feed and are susceptible to chokes and colics. The excellent digestibility properties of vapour extrusion feed help horse to get more power from less feed. Total feed stability of vapour extrusion is higher than that of cereals, sweetened feed or a pellet. According to a University of Florida survey carried out in the 1980', 18th century horse owners showed that animals feeding on steam-extruded feed s had a high level of healthfulness.
5 percent better feed utilisation than pelletised feeds. Difficult to keep and older horse profit from the higher nutritional supply of a vapour extrusion feed. Due to the longer chewing period and better feed utilisation, many users find that they can feed up to 30% less vapour extrusion feed than a pellet or cereal feed and enjoy the same advantages.
But how much does one have to feed to improve the physical fitness of the organism? First, an evaluation of the state of the human organism should be made. Diagrams are available for the calculation of the Bodycondition Scores. Below are diagrams of how to assess a horse's physical fitness. The back is flat, the rips are noticeable but not visible, the grease around the cock, the ankles, the shoulder and the throat mixes gently with the rest of the bod.
It is necessary for practice to know how much extra fat is needed to raise your physical fitness from 4 to 5 and how much food is needed. Nutritional requirements of horses indicate that an improvement in status can be reached by increasing energetic uptake by 10-15%.
There are two things that determine the amount of calories needed to reach a 1 kg rise in your physical weight: the nutritional mix. Furthermore, the demand for excess fuel per kg of extra fuel rises with increasing old-age. Additions in weights from 33 kg to 45 kg lead to an increment of the state value by 2 unit (i.e. 4 to 6 units).
In the following chart, the amount of power required in addition to service is shown to raise the status value from 4 to 5 over different timescales: What is the best way to raise your power? Nutrition can provide us with food sources of calories in the shape of carb and oil. Proteins can be used as a source of power if they are consumed in quantities beyond the horse's needs.
The use of proteins to enhance caloric input, however, is costly and inefficient and generates warmth, Ammonia and gases during the digestive process. As a rule, the augmentation of the "fat content" can be reached by an augmented caloric supply (and we do not know that!). In order to raise the "coverage", the power consumption can be raised above the level necessary for servicing. In order to derive maximal benefits from the feed and to enhance the security of the change in energetic supply, the energetic supply should be provided in a way that is mainly absorbed in the small bowel.
The horse digests non-fibrous sugars and oil in the small bowel and benefits from food that is easily absorbed in the small bowel. 90 percent of the vapour extrusion feed is broken down in the small bowel in comparison to crude granules. Just 21% of the maize, 29% of the oat and 65% of the malted oat are left to digest in the small bowel and the rest is left to ferment in the large bowel.
What should my horse eat every single night? If you are calculating the amount of food your horse needs every single passing hour, a good general guideline is to feed 2 - 2.5% of his total diet. A 500 kg horse would need about 10 kg of fodder per diem (including fodder obtained from pasture).
In order to raise the body mass, it may be necessary to feed up to 3% of the body mass. If feed such as a pellet, coarse grain or sweetened feed is substituted by vapour extrusion feed, a pellet ladle is substituted by a ladle of vapour extrusion feed. Due to the lower densities of vapour extrusion feedstocks, the mass per dispenser is approximately 2/3 of the mass of the same amount of material, so a lower mass of vapour extrusion feedstock is needed to achieve the same mass gains.
On the following chart you can see the overall weights of crude (pelleted, sweetened feed and cereals) or vapour extrusion feed required to raise the value for physical fitness by one point. However, some horse tends to lose their status in cold weather. It is necessary to supervise grazing when a horse whose diet is partial grazing is fed if it is balanced by another type of forage such as fodder or forage.
With increasing grazing the amount of straw or straw can be decreased. Routine worms and dental examinations should be included in your horse care programme to make sure you get the most out of the feed. Every change in your horse's nutrition should be phased in progressively over a two- to three-week course.
When and how often to feed the animals. Horse have a small stomach, so small foods should be given, often to help the digestive system. When more than 6 kg concentrates are needed for gaining slimming power, dividing the diet into at least three foods per diem helps to increase intestinal transit.
Proteins must be smuggled into the small bowel to liberate them. Furthermore, the reduction of vital fatty acid leads to a reduction in the horse's muscular power, elasticity and stamina. Feed a high energetic thick food in the small bowel and digest it enhances the horse's own energetic output. Oil is an outstanding source of concentrated power and an important way to improve a horse's state.
Horse can take up to 1500 ml per diurn. The use of high level lubrication and subsequent outerwear with additional lubrication when needed allows some power management when the working efficiency changes. About 3 week for the gastrointestinal system to fully assimilate the added essential oil and about 3 week for muscle to fully utilise the essential water as an source of source of energy.
Raise the status of the power feed above the standard power requirement. Oils are a cold source of power. What can I do to enhance the appearance of my horse? Lack of nutrition with omega-3 fats increases the risks of allergy and eczema. Due to the emergence of vapour extraction it has become possible to incorporate high level oils into entire feed systems.
The use of energy-tight feed such as vapour extrusion and micronisation improves small bowel intestinal transit, less warmth, acidity and natural gases are generated, a greater amount of nutrient can be taken in and higher quantities of oil can be added to the diet. Each of these can help improve your horse's physical fitness.
