EVM TropiCAL or TropiCAL-Pro: which do you need?
What is TropiCAL PRO Blend?
Equine Vit&Min TropiCAL Pro is a multi-vitamin and mineral blend rich in calcium to correct calcium to oxalate ratios in the diets of hard-working, breeding and growing horses grazing high oxalate pastures.
It contains a blend of chelated organic as well as inorganic minerals with added salt, biotin, and the supplementary vitamins that growing and harder working horses need. Like all Equine Vit&Min blends, TropiCAL-Pro is unique in its ability to balance the mineral profile across the whole diet. EVM TropiCAL-Pro also provides a daily serve of the live yeast probiotic, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, to aid gut health and digestion.
What is EVM TropiCAL Blend?
Equine Vit&Min TropiCAL Blend provides all the minerals often missing from the equine diet including chelated calcium for horses grazing high oxalate pastures. It is best suited to mature horses at rest or in light work.
EVM TropiCAL contains a blend of organic and inorganic minerals with added salt, biotin and Vitamin E. It includes chelated sources of calcium, zinc, copper and selenium and like all Equine Vit&Min blends, is unique in its ability to balance the mineral profile across the whole diet. TropiCAL Blend contains added biotin and Vitamin E but no sweeteners or fillers.
Why choose Equine Vit&Min?
Equine Vit&Min gives you the freedom to raise or lower your horse’s calorie intake (by feeding more or less grain, pellets, super fibres or oil) whilst knowing that the vitamin and mineral requirements are ALL being met.
Equine Vit&Min TropiCAL Blend and TropiCAL-Pro can:
- Add calcium to offset oxalate levels in pastures.
- Top up the minerals often missing in horse diets to at least the minimum recommended levels (according to NRC 2007).
- Balance the critical mineral ratios across the whole diet.
- Add essential vitamins to supplement intake.
EVM TropiCAL and TropiCAL-Pro Blends are available in 4.8 kg and 20 kg packs.
Directions for Use
Mix daily serve of EVM TropiCAL or TropiCAL-Pro Blend into horse’s slightly dampened feed. Unlike other Equine Vit&Min blends, the TropiCAL range includes a daily serve of salt which allows the product to be used as a loose lick since horses’ appetites for salt matches their actual requirement. Ideally, the product is best served daily, but when management conditions only facilitate free choice minerals, TropiCAL and TropiCAL-Pro can be made available free choice in a free-draining container kept under shelter.
When grazing 100% High Oxalate Pasture, no hay fed:
Reduce by 20% for every 2kg Lucerne hay fed.
When grazing 50% high oxalate pasture, no hay fed:
Reduce by 30% for every 2kg Lucerne hay fed.
We strongly recommend accessing our free diet analysis service for horses grazing high oxalate pastures.
If using a fortified feed such as pellets or muesli mix, reduce the rate of Equine Vit&Min. Do not feed more Equine Vit&Min unless advised by a veterinarian or nutritionist. Always provide fresh, clean water. Dosage can be halved and fed twice daily. Scoop included in pack holds 100g.
