Bioplex® offers a range of trace minerals that provide mineral nutrition in a form as close to nature as possible. Bioplex minerals are trace minerals that are bound to amino acids and a range of peptides. They are easily absorbed and readily metabolized, optimizing animal performance. Bioplex trace minerals (zinc, manganese, copper, iron and cobalt*) are co-factors in enzymes critical to the animal’s defense system, growth and reproduction. Trace mineral nutrition is key to maintaining health and animal food product quality. The Alltech Q+ (Quality Plus) program, the mineral quality control program unique to Bioplex trace minerals, guarantees quality, safety and performance in every batch. Alltech Q+ sets the industry standard, enabling Alltech to offer a global quality guarantee to customers using Bioplex trace minerals in more than 85 countries around the world. Bioplex is part of the Alltech® Mineral Management program, which demonstrates that modern management of mineral nutrition can be achieved through the inclusion of trace minerals in the forms of Bioplex and Sel-Plex® while maintaining performance. This innovation is referred to as Total Replacement Technology ™ (TRT). Bioplex:
Offers higher bioavailability than inorganic minerals.
Reduces concerns about negative mineral interactions.
Supports mineral retention and tissue reserves.
Reinforces mineral status, which leads to optimal overall health, immune status and reproductive function in the animal.
Is readily absorbed, stored and utilized by the animal.
Is supported by more than 21 years of research

Supports overall performance.
Is a solution to help animals achieve their true potential. Increased productivity inevitably brings new challenges and risks to modern animal production that cannot be avoided. Integral A+ can be a solution.
Has several advantages, including:
Has a low, effective inclusion rate.
Is stable over a wide pH range.
Has a broad-spectrum reach.
De-Odorase® is derived from the yucca plant and binds ammonia. Yucca schidigera has been used to reduce adverse manure emissions and has been known to more efficiently reduce the level of ammonia in animal housing when used as a feed material. De-Odorase keeps manure odor and ammonia at levels conducive to maintaining respiratory health. This creates a healthier environment not only for the animal, but also for the producer.
Does AFF include Gut and Gastric Care ingredients?
Yes! All of our formulas contain LIVE Viable microorganisms, Yeast Cultures and Probiotics. **We do not use the word PROPRIETARY to cover up any holes in our formulas because we have no secrets. All of our ingredients are published and available to anyone, at anytime.
Does AFF require any top dressing or additional supplements?
NO! At 2 pounds per day, your horse is guaranteed to receive more than adequate vitamins, minerals, probiotics etc. If you do choose to add to our veterinary formulated recipes, do so with caution. We include everything but a Joint Supplement. If you are looking for a fantastic daily joint supplement that works well with AFF, we Highly Recommend - Formula 1 Noni, with Hyaluronic Acid.
2 pounds? Really? How is that possible?
The answer is 2 fold. Extrusion expands the molecules making them up to 300% MORE digestible than a raw or textured grain. Then we jam pack our formulas with the proper vitamins, minerals and supplements to make the very best possible feed on the market today.
I noticed that feeds on the market require such high feed rates, why?
That's absolutely true, most raw or textured grains on the market require HIGH feed rates of 5-10 and sometimes 15 pounds per day along with their forage. Raw and textured grains don't digest in the foregut and must travel to the hindgut for further digestion. This is where the fermentation begins. Imagine how your gut would feel cooking all that grain and extra water weight every single day? This is also why these feeds are HIGH STARCH, because they have such HIGH feed rates. They may claim they are a "low starch feed' when in reality their high feed rates reflect a high starch content. Remember, if you aren't feeding according to the manufactures recommendation, your horse in NOT ingesting the DAILY NUTRITIONAL REQUIREMENTS. AFF's 2 POUNDS PER DAY guarantees a lower than average starch rate AND meets the Nutritional Requirements.
Do you include Molasses?
No. Our premium American grown ingredients have no use for added sugars or flavor enhancers. Horses LOVE the crunch and natural healthy flavors without the need to mask it.
