The Success Story
What started as feeding study at the German stud Hesta Borg in 1998 with its special breeds, developed into one of the most successful feed concepts for horses of all breeds: Hesta Mix. The influence of nutrient deficiencies and other deficiency symptoms on diet-related problems such as eczema, immune disorders, itching and mental disorders was uncovered with the Icelandic horses. A fundamental finding to optimize feed rations.
Especially rich in micronutrients
Hesta Mix Classic
The cold-pressed "Hesta Mix Classic" with the unbeatable price-performance-ratio contains more trace elements and less energy than Hesta Mix Muesli. It can also be easily fed to good keepers. The diet of boarding horses is upgraded when complementing the stable-owned feed with Hesta Mix Classic which will rapidly become visible on skin and coat.
- highly bio-available trace elements
- rapid feeding success
- can be easily combined with other concentrated feeds
- contains herbs, ground algae, oils and oleaginous fruits
- free from oats
The many faces of deficiency symptoms
Many horses' energy requirements can be more than adequately met by feeding them very small concentrate feed rations. However, these small feed rations frequently lack essential vital nutrients and micronutrients. Conventional mineral supplements often fail to meet the real nutritional needs of the horses. The result are deficiency symptoms that express themselves in nervousness and restlessness, signs of wear and tear and digestive problems, susceptibility to infections, skin problems, allergies and loss of weight, metabolic and endocrine disorders.
Particularly high in trace element content
The Hesta Mix-series is rich in vital nutrients and has a high content in biologically available micronutrients. This guarantees an adequate and proper supply of organic trace elements even when fed in small quantities. Deficiency symptoms are reliably resolved or even prevented thanks to the easy absorption in the intestine and the rapid transport to the relevant target organ.
To be fed as supplement to conventional basic feed including roughage and/or pasture grass, per 100 kg body weight and day:
Classic: approx. 150–250 g 1 liter = approx. 750 g
With lower dosage or supply shortage, we recommend adding SemperMin or MicroVital.
