BETA EGUS Mark
The British Equestrian Trade Association – in consultation with the Veterinary Medicines Directorate – launched a new approval mark in 2016 to help horse owners identify feeds suitable for horses and ponies prone to equine gastric ulcer syndrome (EGUS).
What did WE do to get the mark?
The rigorous application process, is split into three stages which includes the examination of ingredients, labelling, marketing claims, and an independent laboratory analysis. The feed must also fall into one of two categories: A – a compound complementary feed that provides a balanced diet when fed at a rate stated by the manufacturer; B – feedstuff typically advised to help manage horses prone to EGUS, including chopped or high-fibre feeds and sugar beet, or alternative energy sources to cereals such as high oil concentrates.
WE is proud!
So, after a thorough three stage vetting, and as one of the first feed brands to receive approval to use the mark on one of its products, WE is feeling very proud! WINERGY Equilibrium Growth is one of only two products that has been approved by BETA to bear the EGUS mark and can now be seen on the front of all WINERGY Equilibrium Growth packs in store.
