Performance Cubes provide energy for work but are ‘a Non-Heating’ feed and are ideal for horses that need to focus on their jobs or are a bit sharp.
Performance Cubes are designed to be added to a TopSpec feed balancer or supplement and therefore contain no added vitamins or trace-elements. That is why we call them a ‘blend’, because they are a blend of straight raw materials rather than a complete feed.
One of the ways in which they are superior to most straights however, is that they have been supplemented with the major minerals calcium, sodium and magnesium. For example, feeding Performance Cubes instead of cooked barley/sugar beet/oats/alfalfa to working horses, reduces or eliminates the need to add salt.
They are formulated without the use of any cereal-grains, so they are not just ‘oat-free’ or ‘barley-free’ but completely cereal-grain free. At the same time they have a good energy level of 12.5MJ/kg, equivalent to most cereal-containing compound feeds designed to support hard work. The formula is low in starch and sugar and high in fibre.
Performance Cubes contain good quality protein and have available sources of calcium, magnesium and salt added.
The highly digestible fibre in these cubes helps to promote the beneficial bacteria in the hindgut therefore helping to maintain a healthy digestive system.
When to use Performance Cubes:-
- TopSpec Feed Balancers provide the perfect start to feeding a cereal-grain-free, low sugar/ starch diet. TopChops and/or unmolassed sugar beet shreds often provide a limited amount of suitable additional calories but when more calories are required or simple cubes are preferred, Performance Cubes provide the answer.
- Ideal when extra energy is required for harder work.
- An excellent choice when relaxed and focussed performance is required.
- Perfect for any horses or ponies requiring a low starch / high-fibre diet for other reasons e.g. muscle function.
