Product Description

ORECO CalCare pellets are suitable for all equines grazing on affected pastures or receiving pollard or bran based diets. "Big Head" usually occurs when there is a calcium imbalance within the horses diet.

Big Head or Bran Disease can occur in a horse when they are grazing tropical and sub-tropical grasses that contain high concentrations of oxalates, or who are fed high phosphorous containing diets sich as high grain, pollard or bran.

ORECO's CalCare pellet is a 12mm calcium supplement pellet used to overcome calcium deficiencies.  The 12mm pellet is also suitable for feeding to broodmares and young stock to maximise the availability of calcium in the diets.

We recommend feeding CalCare pellets with out ORECO Premium Healthy Cut range.
