A specially balanced and complete multivitamin and mineral profile is utilised to supplement nutritional deficiencies which may help to maintain bone and hoof integrity as well as assist with muscle, skin and coat health.
Live Prebiotic and Probiotics helps support and promote healthy immunity and the digestive system. The pellet increases palatability and reduces wastage which can be encountered with powdered supplements.

The fibre based pellet maintains a healthy gut microbiome and the live probiotics and prebiotics promote the growth of beneficial good bacteria. The live probiotics stabilise the pH and reduce lactic acid in the hindgut. The results is a stimulated activity and growth of beneficial good bacteria for more efficient feed conversion. Improvements in appetite, behaviour and manure quality are all associated with a healthy gut environment.
Immune System Health
Key chelated minerals are required for a proper functioning immune system. Prebiotics inhibit harmful bacteria whilst stimulating the immune system function. The prebiotics blocks the attachment and development of harmful bacteria within the gut. This has a positive effect on the horse’s natural immune system, reducing the risk of disease through a stronger immune response.
Specifically balanced vitamin and mineral profile including chelated zinc, methionine & biotin also by creating a healthier gut microbiome, biotin is produced naturally by the horse in the hindgut and utilised to help maintain hoof health.
Skin & Coat Condition
Zinc is more important for dark colours, while copper is more important for chestnuts. It is crucial that zinc and copper are at correct ratios in the diet, regardless of the colour of the horse. Australian pasture, hay and feed crops are commonly low in zinc and copper while being naturally high in iron (CF50 has no added iron). This has a great impact on a horse’s dietary intake as all three compete for absorption. Too much of one means less of the others are absorbed. CF50 contains Chelated Zinc and Chelated Copper which are more readily absorbed by horses.
Bone & Muscle Health
Calcium and phosphorous are the main minerals found in bones. The ratio should be up to 3:1 Ca:P for the overall diet. Magnesium is required for the collagen matrix and bone mineralisation. Zinc, Copper and Boron for bone development. Zinc in particular for bone and cartilage formation. The key vitamins are Vitamin D for bone mineralisation and calcium and phosphorus absorption. Vitamin A for osteoclast function, bone resorbing cells in bone remodelling. Vitamin C in collagen synthesis and repair. Vitamin K in bone and cartilage metabolism.

Can I soak CEN CF50?
Yes, CEN CF50 can be fed soaked. It can also be fed dry or damp depending on the individual horse’s preference.
How to work out how much CEN CF50 to feed?
There is a suggested feeding guide, but our Free Diet Analysis is the best way. This is because all horses should be treated as individuals due to many factors including other nutrients in the diet, genetics and environment.
Is CEN CF50 safe for LAMINITIC PRONE and horses with LAMINITIS?
Yes, it is safe with an NSC % of less than 5%.
Is CEN CF50 safe for ULCER PRONE and horses with ULCERS?
Yes, it is safe being very low in sugar and starch, and promotes a healthy digestive environment.
Can I feed a PROBIOTIC on top of CEN CF50?
Yes, the CEN CF50 includes a daily maintenance support of live probiotics but if your horse requires further support, a probiotic/digestive supplement can be fed on top. CEN XtraBalance is an excellent addition for horses prone to digestive upsets from stress or increased workload.
