Performance Cubes provide energy for working horses but are ‘Non-Heating’ and are ideal for horses that need to focus on their jobs or are a bit sharp.
Performance Cubes are designed to be added to a TopSpec Feed Balancer or supplement and therefore contain no added vitamins or trace-elements. That is why we call them a ‘blend,’ because they are a blend of straight raw materials rather than a complete feed.
One of the ways in which they are superior to most straights however, is that they have been supplemented with the major minerals calcium, sodium and magnesium. For example, feeding Performance Cubes instead of cooked barley/sugar beet/oats/alfalfa to working horses, reduces or eliminates the need to add salt.
They are formulated without the use of any cereal grains, so they are not just ‘oat-free’ or ‘barley-free’ but completely cereal-grain-free. At the same time they have a good energy level of 12.5MJ/kg, equivalent to most cereal containing compound feeds designed to support hard work. The formula is low in starch and sugar, and high in good quality protein and fibre.

TopSpec Feed Balancers provide the perfect base for feeding a cereal-grain-free, low sugar/starch diet. TopChops and/or unmolassed sugar beet shreds often provide a limited amount of suitable additional calories but when more calories are required or simple cubes are preferred, Performance Cubes provide the answer.
Ideal when extra energy is required for harder work.
An excellent choice when relaxed and focussed performance is required.
