Since 2011 the share of Balancers in the bucket, compared to traditional compound feeds, has increased by more than 50% yet there’s still some misunderstanding about their true purpose. SPILLERS®, the best- known equine feed brand in the UK*, advises that retailers should always keep a good range in stock and be ready to help clear up any confusion about what a balancer actually does.
Clare Barfoot RNutr, the research and development manager at SPILLERS® blows a few common myths. She said: “A balancer will not provide enough additional calories to build condition, lite versions will not work like a ‘diet’ pill and facilitate weight loss on their own and lastly balancers even when they contain functional ingredients can’t treat clinical conditions - this is an area for veterinary treatment.”
However, balancers are an ideal solution to many of today’s nutritional needs. A well-designed balancer will provide optimum levels of vitamins and minerals to balance the base diet whilst supplying negligible calories and starch; ideal for horses and ponies that maintain their weight on a forage-only diet or for those that need less than the recommended amount of compound feed.
Andrew Brown, General Manager at Bedfordshire Growers Limited said: “SPILLERS® Balancers are well named and accurately described. Customers can be choosy and each Balancer in the SPILLERS® range has its place. I tend to stock all six to make sure I don’t disappoint. I know my customers are going to be very enthusiastic about this promotion.”
SPILLERS® is offering £3.00 Off Daily Balancer, Lite + Lean Balancer and Gro N’ Win® Stud Balancer and £5.00 Off Original Multi Balancer, Supple + Senior Balancer and Pro Performance Balancer for six weeks from 3rd July, while flashed stocks last.
There has never been a better time to stock SPILLERS® Balancers and there is full spectrum of point of sale materials clearly explaining which balancer to choose from the SPILLERS® range.
