Find out how Neoflo Equine can help your horse!

 

 

 

Norvite Animal Nutrition Company Ltd was founded in 1973 and is headquartered at Insch, in the heart of Aberdeenshire.  The company employs more than sixty staff across its four manufacturing and retail sites in Aberdeenshire and Ayrshire.  A leading supplier to the Scottish livestock industry for more than forty years, Norvite has built a solid reputation for the supply of quality products and service. The company is proud to hold a Royal Warrant from Her Majesty the Queen as manufacturers of specialist animal feeds and supplements.  Almost forty years ago, Norvite started to develop its range of horse feeds and supplements, and in 2015 a cold pressed rapeseed oil named Neoflo Equine was added to the range.

Neoflo Equine is produced at Norvite’s Blackbog site, where the company invested in a new purpose built plant for crushing oilseeds.  The Norvite Expeller Oil Seeds (NEOS) plant cold presses locally sourced oilseed rape to produce both a protein rich meal for ruminant feeds, and oil for pig, poultry and equine diets.  The plant is FEMAS (Feed Materials Assurance Scheme) approved and is also covered by BETA’s NOPS Code, making Neoflo Equine a smart choice for those feeding horses that compete under rules.

 

Oil is a popular addition to equine diets whether for maintaining coat gloss and skin condition, or as a source of energy or calories for those that work hard or need to gain weight.  Norvite’s NEOFLO Equine is a golden rapeseed oil that has been cold pressed in order to maintain its natural flavour and nutritional properties.  Rather than using solvents or heat treatment, the process simply squeezes the seeds to remove the oil, resulting in a nutty flavour that has become popular in domestic cooking and has been found to be highly palatable to even the fussiest of horses. Neoflo Equine is also popular with those in favour of using products with low food miles and supporting British businesses.

As well as providing calories or slow-release energy in the diet, cold pressed rapeseed oil naturally contains antioxidants such as vitamin E which contribute to the horse’s daily requirement.  Rapeseed oil is also one of the best vegetable sources of Omega 3 fatty acids, and has a balanced ratio of Omega 3 to Omega 6 fatty acids.

Neoflo Equine is available across the UK in 2.5, 5 and 25 litre containers from local stockists and online retailers.  Find us on facebook @neofloequine or email equine@norvite.com for more information.
