Why feed Dengie Ulser Lite?

Our team of nutritionists have developed Ulser Lite to help find the balance between supplying sufficient fibre for good doers to maintain gastric health without promoting excessive weight gain. Recent studies have shown that using straw as part of the ration does not increase the risk of gastric ulcers (Jansson et al, 2021) and provides a valuable source of low calorie fibre. The inclusion of grass alongside the straw aids palatability and ensures the feed is soft and palatable.

Top Tips for Feeding the Ulcer Prone Good Do-er

  • Make fibre the foundation of the diet, both long stem and short chop, topping up with a supplement or balancer to provide a balanced ration
  • Keep fibre intake as maximal as possible whilst managing bodyweight by using late cut hay and other lower calorie fibre sources such as Ulser Lite
  • Feed regular forage feeds split into as many small meals as possible when your horse is not at grass leaving a larger quantity overnight
  • Feed a small alfalfa based meal prior to exercising
  • Make sure your horse has constant access to water

Feeding Guidelines

How To Get The Most Out Of Feeding Ulser Lite

Dengie Ulser Lite is a straight feed and so can be used in the bucket feed to slow consumption of balancers, mixes and cubes which is beneficial for digestive health. Any level can be fed but between 500g per 100kgs bodyweight per day is a practical range when added to the bucket feed.

Although abundant in natural nutrients a broad-spectrum vitamin and mineral supplement or balancer should be fed alongside to ensure the diet is balanced. Ulser Lite may be fed dry, dampened with water or a soaked mash product, such as Dengie Alfa-Beet can be added.

If using as a hay replacer – feed the same weight of Dengie Ulser Lite as the forage you are replacing on a dry matter basis. Feeding 1.5kgs per 100kgs bodyweight will provide 1.5% of the horse’s bodyweight as forage per day on an as fed basis.

One Stubbs scoop holds approximately 400g.
