Energiza™

Racing - Highly palatable flexi feed for horses in hard work or racing.

Energiza™

The choice of champion trainers. Semi-concentrate feed for horses in pre-training or racing. Mitavite Energiza™ is a nutrient dense, high protein, high energy semi-concentrate scientifically formulated to maximise energy delivery, assist the rapid replenishment of muscle fuel stores and to support muscle repair after fast work or racing. From the same family as the highly successful Mitavite Athlete Plus®, Mitavite Energiza™ includes the same potent amino acid profile with the addition of roasted and steam-flaked corn.

 

Unique Features of Mitavite Energiza®
• The latest in equine feed technology
• Feed alone or add grains as work load increases
• Nutrient dense formulation with added corn
• Contains Bonafide®, Mitavite’s exclusive Vitamin K supplement that supports bone density and soundness


Choose Mitavite Energiza® when
• When you need one ration that will serve your horses well from pre-training through to racing
• You want an ration with a low feeding rate
• You have picky eaters
• You want your horses to have the support of Bonafide® every day

 

Available in 20kg bags.

Ingredients

Faba Beans, Roasted and Rolled Lupins, Sunflower Seeds, Roasted and Steam Flaked Corn, Vegetable Protein, Vegetable Oils, (including Omega 3 and Omega 9), Lysine, Methionine, Molasses, Salts, Heat Stable Vitamins, Chelated Mineral Proteinates and Quinaquanone (the active constituent of Bonafide)

Daily Feeding Guide

A true concentrate is a base ration that contains protein meals, vitamins, minerals and electrolytes, but no grains. In a racing diet concentrates such as Mitavite® Athlete Plus or Mitavite® Impacta™ would be fed at 2-2.5kg per day and to this the trainer would add grains to suit each horse’s requirements. Energiza™ while containing many of the same ingredients as Impacta™ and the same amino acid profile as Athlete Plus it also contains roasted and steam flaked corn, so when fed at only 2.5-3 kg per day, Energiza™ provides sufficient energy for pre-training or early work. Most importantly when additional grains are added as work increases Energiza™ still provides a highly nutritious, complete diet for horses in hard work and racing. A common mistake is for a trainer to use a complete feed such as Mitavite Formula 3® as a concentrate, typically adding 2-3 kg of grains to 2-3 kgs of Formula 3®. This feeding strategy is flawed as this ration will not provide either the energy (1 kg of Formula 3® contains more energy than 1 kg of oats) or optimal levels of vitamins, minerals, electrolytes and most importantly protein, to support hard work. Complete feeds such as Formula 3® should be fed at recommended rates to be fully effective.

Roughage (hay, chaff, pasture etc) should be fed at 1 – 1 ½% of bodyweight. Amounts above are a guide. Total daily feed (concentrate and roughage) should be 2-3% of bodyweight depending on age, workload & climate. Refer to the exercise calculator to determine classification of workload.

Vitamite® Dr Biff's Hoof Supplement®

An aid in the prevention and treatment of hoof disorders:

 

  • Injured or poor quality hooves, thin brittle walls and thin soles
  • Easily bruised heels, poorly formed frogs
  • Horses or ponies with laminitis.
  • Very palatable formulation

 

An aid in the prevention and treatment of hoof disorders such as injured or poor quality hooves, thin brittle walls, thin soles, easily bruised heels, poorly formed frogs or laminitis.

 

The supplement provides all nutrients required to accelerate keratin production.  Whilst keratin production happens naturally in response to injury or insult, it can only occur if all nutrients required are available and consumed daily.

 

It has dramatic effects on the rate of hoof repair and regeneration and unlike many Methionine-containing supplements which deter feeding, this supplement is very palatable.  It is also non-siftable which defeats the horse’s ability to leave a portion of powder in the feed.

 

Dr Biff’s Hoof Supplement contains

Biotin – well recognised as a rate-limiting nutrient for hoof growth and hoof quality. 

Methionine – and Cysteine which can be synthesised from it, are the sulphur containing amino acids which are required more by keratin than any other tissue, often deficient when accelerated growth is required.

Zinc – if supply is marginal, tissue with abnormal demand is the first to suffer.  

Vitamin E – essential to additional keratin production. 

Vitamin A – one of the carotenoids essential to all keratinized tissues, needed mostly by horses not on high quality fresh pasture.

Omega-3 – all membranes, including hoof wall microtubules, and laminae, must have omega-3 to be built with suppleness and strength.

Iodine – iodine- deficient horses often show poor hoof quality

 

 

Vitamite® Bonafide®

Vitamite® Bonafide® explained:

  • The active ingredient in Bonafide® is Quinaquanone, a water soluble, bio-available form of Vitamin K1 & K2.
  • Vitamin K1 & K2 has a critical effect on the function of osteocalcin, the bone protein that binds the mineral and protein in bone together. Without sufficient Vitamin K the binding process is incomplete and low density or defective bone and cartilage are produced.
  • Vitamin K1 & K2 are naturally available in fresh, growing green pasture but it is highly unstable, being degraded by UV light, wilting or “wintering off”.
  • Horses that do not have constant access to high quality pasture are likely to be deficient in Vitamin K, leading to a reduction in bone density and bone strength.
  • Horses removed from Vitamin K rich pasture and brought into a box/yard regime have demonstrated a reduction in bone density within 7-10 days.
  • There is an established correlation between bone density and the incidence of OCDs and DODs in yearlings and DMD (shinsoreness) in 2 year olds.
  • Bonafide® is the first product to contain Quinaquanone, a bioavailable form of Vitamin K1 and K2.

Trial Results
Trials have showed a marked increase in bone density on BONAFIDE treated two year olds.
26 Two year old thoroughbred racehorses at commencement of training for racing were divided into two groups. One group 'BONAFIDE' RECEIVED 7MG Vitamin K formulation each day in feed for six months.
The other group “Control” received an apparently identical powder containing no natural Vitamin K.


Digital radiographs of the left third metacarpal bone and an adjacent aluminium step wedge were taken at carious intervals. The radiographic density of the bone and the step wedge wer measured and RBAE (radiographic bone aluminium equivalence) calculated.


At each subsequent measurement the RBAE for each horse was compared to its initial RBAE and the percentage change recorded.
