Premium Hi-Fat Supplements

For additional energy needs.


Once a nutritional base of forage, minerals, and vitamins is established in a horse's ration, additional energy needs should be addressed.


Too Much Starch Creates Problems

Today's elite equine athletes need very specialized rations with all nutrients in the correct proportions if they are to perform at their best. Traditionally, cereal grains have been used to supply the horse with extra energy and other nutrients. Unfortunately, feeding too much grain (starch source) can result in metabolic and digestive disorders, such as colic, founder, tying-up, etc., and may contribute to developmental orthopedic disease (DOD).



Extensive research has shown that fats provide more energy per pound, are digested more efficiently, and decrease the thermal load in working horses compared to grains. Dietary fat also has a sparing effect on muscle glycogen stores, allowing horses to do more work before tiring.


A Better Energy Source

A source of energy that does not contribute to metabolic and digestive disorders and DOD is a long-awaited breakthrough for the horse industry. Stabilized rice bran is considered the best source of beneficial dietary fat for horses. The stabilized rice bran is made with a stabilization process that inactivates the lipase enzyme - the enzyme responsible for causing rancidity. This process also maintains the potency of vitamin E and antioxidants naturally occurring in HEALTHY GLOTM, a stabilized rice bran product. The result is a highly nutritious product.


Premium Hi-Fat Supplements

FORAGE FIRSTprograms combine good-quality forage, GROSTRONG® vitamin-mineral products, and Concentrated Energy Supplements (HEALTHY GLO Nuggets, HEALTHY GLO Meal, and MOORGLO® -  a Limited Starch Supplement containing stabilized rice bran, Omega FlaxTM, and Soy ShineTM) to produce balanced total rations. With this combination of feeds, horses can be healthy and perform at their best when fed less grain than they would receive from traditional horse rations. Consequently, horses are at less risk of metabolic and digestive disorders and DOD that may result from high-starch intake. Stabilized rice bran is the foundation of ADM Animal Nutrition's Concentrated Energy Supplement products.


Advantages of Premium Hi-Fat Supplements as an Energy Source:

  • Fat from natural rice oil and flax - Provides energy in a highly digestible form and more energy per pound than grains.

  • Can reduce the "grain-high" associated with feeding large amounts of grain.

  • Can reduce the risk of digestive disorders, such as tying-up, founder and colic, associated with feeding large amounts of grain.

  • Contains CitriStim®, an ADM proprietary feed ingredient, which is a source of yeast mannans and beta glucans that may favorably impact the gut microbial population.

  • Provides dietary fat, which reduces the thermal load in working horses, resulting in better stamina and endurance.

  • Reduces amount of starch in the diet - One pound of HEALTHY GLO or MOORGLO and additional forage may replace 3-4 pounds of traditional grain-based horse feed.

  • Can be used to enhance body condition of thin horses.

  • Contributes to hair coat shine and "bloom."

  • Does not contain preservatives.

  • Shelf stability - Rancidity is not a problem.

  • Contains powerful antioxidants and a significant amount of natural-source vitamin E, which protects body tissues from oxidative damage. The need for vitamin E is vital to immune system functioning and may be especially important for working horses as they are more prone to exercise-induced muscle damage. Research shows natural-source vitamin E is more bio-available compared with synthetic vitamin E.

  • The stabilized rice bran contains complete hypoallergenic protein (13%) - Does not cause allergic skin reaction sometimes seen in horses sensitive to protein.

  • Rich source of B-complex vitamins - Vital to health, especially for digestion of carbohydrates and fats.

  • Highly palatable - Readily consumed.
