  • Insulin resistant horse with cushings disease and laminitis

    By Greatstuff on Mar 26, 2021

    This product has made a huge difference in my horse that has recently been diagnosed with insulin resistance and cushings disease. Her laminitis pain has improved greatly. Had to change her diet to reduce sugars and carbs. She loves the taste and it absorbs meds that are dissolved in water too.

  • Gelding seems to like it!

    By Lkm2018 on Mar 19, 2021

    I started my gelding on this a week ago and he seems to be doing great! He does seem generally calmer, he got more chatty since we switched (unsure if this did that but it’s a nice change!). Can’t wait to see how it goes as we continue on!

  • Picky horse.

    By MTGM on Feb 17, 2021

    My gelding was suddenly picky and refusing feed. Treated with omeprazole and switched to the Kalm 'N EZ. He refuses his previous feed and gobbles this up. He is a much happier horse.

  • Tribute The best feed

    By jaeggergs on Jan 17, 2021

    I love Tribute Feed. I have found it is the best feed especially for a horse that needs to gain weight. I like the fact there is no molasses to hype them up. The horses love the taste! I would highly recommend!

    By gerbear on Jan 18, 2021

    Our old mare is founder prone so we changed her diet - no grain, no sugary snacks, and low nonstructural carbs. I found this pelleted feed to use for her mash and she responded almost immediately.

  • Molasses free!

    By Joey on Jan 12, 2021

    Wonderful to find this molasses free feed. I needed something that my horses would think it was worthwhile to come up to the barn for! They have been finding beet pulp and Timothy pellets to be pretty blah.

  • best find!!

    By Lauren on Nov 25, 2020

    I have an OTQH who is a hard keeper, and his digestive system can’t handle the sugar in most feeds. I saw this one was specifically made for horses with those issues, and it worked wonderfully! My boy isn’t all gangly anymore and he’s less spooky. I won’t use anything else now.

By Dr. Dan J. Burke, Ph.D.

Director of Equine Nutrition, Tribute Equine Nutrition/Kalmbach Feeds, Inc.

Do you wish you could have a calmer horse, reduce or eliminate longeing time, and help your horse maintain better focus in training and in the show pen? All while maintaining his general body condition, topline, hair coat and hoof quality? Let’s evaluate the situation and find an answer...

We have learned a tremendous amount about the interaction of nutrition with behaviour in the past few years. We now know that reducing the amount of starch and sugar going to the horse can have a calming effect. Sugar plus starch in a feed is called non-structural carbohydrates (NSC), and we need to reduce the total intake of NSC (i.e., percent x pounds fed), not just the percent of NSC.

For example, a horse being fed six pounds of feed that is 14 percent NSC would be taking in 0.84 pounds of NSC (0.14 x 6). A horse eating a feed designed to be fed at two pounds per day would be taking in 0.28 pounds of NSC (0.14 x 2). Further, an inexpensive sweet feed may be 45 percent NSC and have a feeding rate of six pounds per day – which results in an NSC intake of 2.7 pounds!

It is important to recognize that there is a tremendous variation from horse-to-horse in how NSC affects behaviour and/or body condition. Horses that are in heavy work, growing, pregnant, or lactating can tolerate higher NSC levels than idle, mature horses.

Many folks reduce the amount of feed a horse is getting to calm them down – in essence, achieving the above reduction in NSC intake. But in so doing, they are also reducing the intake of all other critical non-calorie nutrients (amino acids, vitamins and minerals) which negatively affects the general body condition, topline, hair coat, and hoof quality.

All feeds have recommended feeding levels on the bag or tag. These are the amounts the company believes a horse needs to ensure the proper intake of all nutrients. If one feeds less than the recommended amount, it is like taking only a fraction of the medication your doctor prescribes.

Thus, to reduce the total NSC intake, we have to reduce the amount of feed the horse is getting, use a lower percent NSC product, but still meet the other nutrient requirements. This requires the feed to have higher concentrations of the non-calorie nutrients.

There is a common belief that high protein causes hyperactivity.  This is not true unless the protein level exceeds that required by an estimated two-fold.

In addition, many supplement companies promote products with higher magnesium and/or B-vitamins like thiamin. Without reduction in NSC intake, these will have little effect.

What is the answer?

The product which provides the most complete nutritional package in a true “low NSC” design is Tribute Equine Nutrition’s Essential K.

Essential Kis formulated to be approximately 14 percent NSC, with very low feeding rates (1-2 pounds per day). The product has optimal amino acid balance and vitamin and mineral levels that meet or exceed the new NRC 2007 requirements for horses. When fed as recommended, Essential Kcan be less expensive to feed per day than other feeds.

For horses requiring more calories, Tribute EZ is the next step. It is 14.5 percent NSC and higher in fat (8 percent), keeping the NSC intake low enough to help control the horse’s mind. This product is used by top trainers across North America.
