VUMA KEEPS IT GREEN!

recycle

Reuse, Recycle, Re-invent!

At Vuma we have always believed in Green, from using organically grown raw materials wherever possible to keeping our bags environmentally friendly. Our 22.5Kg laminated BOPP bags are made from recyclable polypropylene so they can be reconstituted but the attractive bags are just too nice to simply send to the recycling plant!

We were delighted to see this innovative use of our polyprop bags at Roy Magner's yard at Randjiesfontein, they are, in our opinion, the nicest grooming kit bags around!

Barroca D'alva
Portugal

Vuma Champions Heartbreak Hill and Paul Hart, achieved their goal of qualifying for the 2012 Olympics, this past weekend! Competing in the three star event at Barroca D'alva in Portugal.

The daunting Cross country course was 3626 metres long with a total of 24 jumps. Paul was very positive, Harry went superbly and they were clear in their jumping. Unfortunately, a small error incurred them a few time faults.

Only 30 of the original 48 entries made it through to the show-jumping on Sunday. Unfortunately, Paul and Harry had two poles down but have qualified for the Olympics and earned valuable points for their international ranking.

The Vuma Team wish Paul and Harry every success in their European quest and we will be watching every step as they fly the South African flag!

You can follow their progress on Facebook :

WHAT IS VITALITY?

Vuma Vitality Horse Feed

Vuma Vitality

Vitality is defined as vital power or the ability to sustain life and health and the ability to endure and have vigour.

This description is the fundamental core of Vuma Vitality, the stalwart of the Vuma product range forming the basic foundation for the Stud Feed range and the favourite principal product in our range of Sport Horse feeds.

Vuma Vitality is a 12% protein muesli based feed, providing horses with a palatable and nutrient dense combination of whole grains including oats, extruded maize, crushed maize, whole sunflower, soya, lucerne, bran, and the industry's number 1 vitamin and mineral pack.

The different whole grains provide a certain amount of roughage (tough outer hulls) while also fulfilling some of the searching behaviour of horses by allowing them to pick through the different grains. More roughage and different shaped grains also encourage slower eating, as a horse cannot grip as much in one mouthful.

The superior vitamin and mineral pack and amino acid profile ensure that each horse receives all the necessary vitamins and minerals to maintain good health and muscle tone and recover well from hard work.

Designed with a dual purpose, Vitality is recommended for sport and leisure horses in medium to hard work, general horses needing condition as well as for stud horses, barren mares, mares in 1st and 2nd trimester of pregnancy, and it is very suitable for spelling horses.

VUMA VO3MAX

vo3max omega 3 oil

BETTER NUTRTITION FOR YOUR HORSES

VO3 Max is a specific, correctly balanced omega-3 blend of oils, containing the three critical omega-3 fatty acids: linolenic acid, EPA and DHA. VO3 Max provides the additional benefits of powerful antioxidants, Vitamin E and garlic.

Oils are an essential part of a horse’s diet, the major functions being the provision of energy, the production of cell membranes and hormones, and storage for the fat soluble vitamins A, D, E and K. Because of their high energy density, oils are playing an increasing role in the diet of sport horsesThey provide 2 1/4 times the energy of the equivalent weight of grain, but are totally digestible in the small intestine, so reducing the behavioural problems associated with hind gut grain fermentation.

ALL OILS PROVIDE THE SAME ENERGY, BUT ALL OILS ARE NOT THE SAME!

Until recently, very little attention has been given to the fatty acid composition of the oils fed, and most often corn or sunflower oil has been used. While these oils may be useful, they are very poor sources of omega-3 fatty acids, linolenic acid (LA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). These dietary omega-3 fatty acids have specific beneficial effects including:

• Decreasing blood lipid concentrations

• Increasing membrane elasticity

• Increasing insulin sensitivity

Regulating inflammatory response(excess omega-6 fatty acids can in fact exacerbate inflammatory
conditions like laminitis, arthritis and dermatitis).

Exercise tests in horses fed an omega-3 rich diet including EPA and DHA found that they tended to have:

• Lower PCV and

• Increased blood viscosity which contribute to

• Improved oxygen supply to muscles

• Lower resting heart rates.

LOWER HEART RATES ARE ASSOCIATED WITH A SLOWER TIME TO FATIGUE
