Our alliance with the Equine Nutrition Experts at KER

Sound nutrition, backed by science, forms the base of all Pegasus & Milne Equine feeds. We feel that research and development are key in creating and maintaining nutritionally superior feed solutions, for all types of horses. Our brand alliance with the equine nutrition experts at Kentucky Equine Research allows for our feeds to be formulated as nutritionally balanced, state-of-the-art feeds for horses in all life stages and disciplines using the most recent, peer reviewed, research findings, to complement our innovative milling technology.

Our KER partnership ensures horses fed Pegasus and Milne Equine feeds receive appropriate levels of KER micronutrient ingredients designed to deliver the optimal amount and proper balance of critical vitamins and minerals to each class of horse for breeding, growth, performance, and overall health. These nutrient requirement guidelines have been developed through decades of research in horse health and performance.

Confused about what to feed?

As part of our commitment to nutrition, Pegasus Feeds provide tailored nutritional support utilising the KER ration analysis software. We realise that for horse owners, achieving the best results from their feed program, starts with understanding feed ingredients, and sound nutritional support and advice.

Our ration analysis takes the guesswork out of choosing the appropriate feed and intake rate for your horse. Developed by KER, MicroSteed uses the individual attributes and exact description of the horse to determine its nutrient requirements.

This allows our nutrition advisor to accurately assist with an assessment of the current feed program, and to make recommendations for improvements or adjustments. Our ration analysis use of specially designed graphs and tables allows for an easy-to-understand visual assessment of how each feed ingredient contributes to the overall ration and to the horse’s requirement for each nutrient.
