Our Director of Science and Nutrition, Dr Wood, explains Bespoke All-In-One™ and how this may benefit you and your horse…
Discover the most cost-effective way of feeding effective supplements.
Feedmark’s supplements are developed to provide your horse with consistent levels of specialised ingredients which are selected to perform specific functions. Depending on the dietary support you want to provide, you can find yourself adding several supplements to your horse’s feeds. There are no issues with this from a nutritional perspective, but it can be time consuming measuring out the daily amount of each supplement, and a concern if you ever have to ask others to make up your horse’s feeds, as they may get confused about instructions or amounts to include.
An effective way to make feeding supplements much easier is to use Feedmark Bespoke All-In-One™.
WHAT IS BESPOKE ALL-IN-ONE™?
Bespoke All-In-One™ is a service offered exclusively by Feedmark, where you select from our range of products, the specific supplements you want to put together and provide for your horse. The active ingredients within each of the selected supplements are then calculated (by our Nutritionists) to meet your horse’s specific requirements, based on their individual characteristics, and a bespoke formulation is created. The final product contains the active ingredients from each of the supplements you selected, combined into a single supplement that provides the correct daily serving of each active ingredient.
WHY DOES IT REMOVE THE NEED FOR CARRIERS/FILLERS?
The term ‘active ingredients’ refers to the ingredients within supplements that have a functional role, for example vitamins and minerals that are required to sustain life, or Glucosamine that is fed for mobility. By using only the active ingredients from each selected supplement, the use of carriers, or base products, is considerably reduced.
Carriers are required in some supplements to make daily servings practical to feed, especially for those with few active ingredients, as measuring very small quantities is inaccurate and often leads to over-feeding due to owners thinking the amount is too small to be beneficial to the horse’s diet. Carriers also improve product consistency and palatability, so are important components of some supplements.
However, by creating a Bespoke All-In-One™ formulation, you can be sure you are feeding a concentrated, nutrient-rich supplement to your horse.
WHY DOES BESPOKE ALL-IN-ONE™ MAKE LIFE EASIER?
In addition to being a high-quality nutrition supplement, Bespoke All-In-One™ is the most practical way of providing specific nutritional support in your horse’s diet…
- SAVE TIME
You only have to measure the daily serving for one supplement, meaning you save time every day and can leave easy-to-follow instructions should someone else have to feed your horse.
- SAVE SPACE + REDUCE PLASTIC WASTE
One personalised supplement also reduces the number of tubs in your feed room, helping towards a tidy yard. Your first supplement will be sent in a tub with your horse’s name and photo on the front, following that, all subsequent monthly deliveries will be sent to you in a recyclable paper bag – helping you to reduce plastic waste.
- SAVE MONEY
Bespoke All-In-One™ is more cost-effective as you will receive your horse’s monthly formulation at a lower cost than if you purchased the supplements individually. This is because Bespoke All-In-One™ has its very own discount system, which automatically increases your discount with every supplement you add to your formulation. You can add up to seven different options.
- HASSLE FREE
This subscription service automatically sends out your horse’s supplement each month, meaning you do not have to keep track of various supplements that last for different lengths of time, nor do you need to worry about running out or reordering.
- CHANGE OR CANCEL AT ANY TIME
Your subscription is under your control, so you can amend the supplements included as your horse’s requirements change, for example if they lose or gain weight, or if you want to support specific health concerns.
Dr Wood’s final thoughts…
The combination of being able to give your horse quality Feedmark supplements in a convenient, cost-effective and easy-to-manage way which completely simplifies feeding, is what makes Bespoke All-In-One™ the obvious choice for you and your horse.
