organic horse feed, is grown with wisdom and care by farmers who use
organic farming methods, no pesticides, no herbicides, pure clean human
grade feed products in harmony with nature and is formulated to:
- Increase performance
- Lower disease
- Use less feed
- Increase weight gain
is difficult for those feeding hard-working, lactating and growing horses
to supply sufficient nutrients in hay alone to meet the horse’s energy
and protein needs.
you see the raw ingredients that go into Genesis™ organic feed, you
realize that these are not ordinary "feed quality" ingredients.
They are human grade food quality ingredients, carefully grown for your
horse. You will be impressed by seeing, smelling and tasting the
high quality of these ingredients.
and hay are often sufficient for adult horses, but are too low in protein
and other nutrients for active horses, brood mares and growing horses.
a natural environment, horses spend most of their day grazing,
slowly taking in the nutrients they require. However, in
confinement, we take away the ability to choose their feed, supplying feed
that is convenient to us - hay and concentrate, over-processed and
have the capability to utilize cellulose and hemicellulose from feed.
If they are fed too much concentrate or if feed is processed too
extensively (i.e. made very digestible by cracking,
extruding and grinding) the fermentation, digestion and absorption can
happen too rapidly and can lead to conditions such as colic, Azoturia or
laminitis. Genesis™ organic horse feed is as close to a natural
product to which horses digestive system evolved to intake the required
nutrients, in addition to roughage, for a balanced diet.
people try to improve ration for animals by fertilizing crops, processing
grains, and using feed additives. If you could feed your broodmares,
foals, mature horses, jumpers, etc. using untreated, pesticide and
chemical fertilizer free feed, wouldn't you? We use organically
grown feed ingredients that have high quality carbohydrates, oil and
protein to produce a product with appropriate energy and fat levels with a
well-balanced protein base.
Genesis™ Organic Horse feed would
impress anyone. The Canadian prairies finest, extremely clean,
and heavy clipped oats. Oats are rich in polyunsaturated fats,
primarily linoleic acid, which makes up about half of the oil in oats.
Hulless barley is very comparable to
the nutritional quality of naked oat groats, providing a very
digestible starch, high energy, low fiber product.
Peas are not commonly used in horse
feed in North America, but they are used extensively in Europe.
Peas are an excellent protein source, have two to three times more
protein than other cereals with a considerably higher Lysine content
(an essential amino acid). Peas have a biological value
equivalent to soy protein, and are a very useful source of protein.
- The flax from Genesis™ organic feed has been tested at much
higher protein levels, higher fat content and lower crude fiber level,
indicating a higher quality seed than standard feed flax. Flax
and flax meal contain omega 3, which is an essential fatty acid.
Flax has demonstrated useful anti-inflammatory properties, decreased
blood LDL-cholesterol (bad cholesterol), and may prevent arthritis.
Flax not only has phytoestrogens, but also other anti-bacterial,
anti-viral and anti-carcinogenic properties, as well as antioxidant
properties. Flax is high in boron, a trace mineral that helps
the body hold onto calcium. Flax will impart a shiny coat and
prevent itching. .
- The flax meal in Genesis™ organic feed ration is unlike other
flax meal and compared to conventionally grown flax, has two to three
times greater oil content. Our flax meal is cold pressed.

blend formulation by Mr. Vernon Racz of the e Prairie feed research Centre
