Where to buy

Nearly 70% of minerals found in a horses’ body are made up of Calcium, Magnesium and Phosphorous. These minerals are critical for bone, teeth, joint and cartilage health. For the active working horse, between 25% and 50% of absorbed calcium is lost during exercise or competition. Unfortunately, many soils across Australia are Calcium deficient making mineral rich pasture difficult to cultivate.

If your horse is restricted to a small paddock, locked in a stable, or kept in a paddock with poor pasture, how are you maintaining your horses’ mineral requirements?

The NRG Team has spent considerable time developing a quality and cost-effective mineral supplement that ensures your horse achieves the daily mineral requirement and helps avoid costly leg and skeletal problems. NRG’s Calcium has added Magnesium and Selenium for high absorption and the correct balance of Phosphorous to combat feed imbalance.

Excess Phosphorus in the horses’ diet leads to less calcium being absorbed. Most grains and especially brans are high in Phosphorus and low in Calcium which leads to a mineral imbalance and poor Calcium absorption.

The NRG Calcium mix has the ideal balance of Calcium and Phosphorous at a 2:1 ratio with added Magnesium for better Calcium absorption and Selenium for muscle development. Many horses’ diets tend to be Calcium deficient and extra Calcium is required to balance the Ca/Ph ratio. Like any mineral, overfeeding can also cause problems, so it is important to achieve the correct mineral ratio.

When you feed NRG Calcium with added Magnesium and Selenium, mix at the rate of 60 grams for an adult horse which equates to a 20 gram dose of pure Calcium. A daily maintenance level for the mature horse should be around 20 grams of Calcium, while a weanling requires up to 36 grams daily and a 2 year old in work about 34 grams.

NRG Calcium with Magnesium and Selenium is available in 1.8kg, 4kg, 10kg and 17kg tubs and is very economical to feed.

"As I usually have a barn full of younger horses, I find the NRG Calcium invaluable for bone development and Apple Cider Vinegar in feeds every night to help lubricate joints"
