Saskatchewan and Manitoba.
Launched in the United States in 2005, Nutrena(R) SafeChoice(R) feed is a
controlled-starch formula scientifically balanced for horses in all life
stages. SafeChoice(R) feed is also designed to simplify feeding and provide
superior nutrition. "We have seen great demand for this product since its
initial launch, as more and more horse owners come to recognize the benefits
of the SafeChoice(R) formula," says Deb Correll, Nutrena(R) brand manager.
Correll says that the product's controlled-starch design helps reduce the risk
of metabolic imbalances related to high-starch intake, while its high levels
of digestible fiber, calorie-rich fats and quality protein provide a basis for
healthy digestion and reliable performance.
"SafeChoice(R) feed is pelleted to enhance the digestibility of nutrients
critical to a horse's health and performance," says Correll, adding that the
formula includes processed grains that enhance starch digestion and replenish
glycogen stores, added yeast cultures and direct-fed microbials to support
fiber and protein digestion, and organic complex trace minerals for increased
