Strictly Equine Barrier Feed Supplement
What is Barrier? A combination of Grape Seed Meal, Distiller Grains, Diatomaceous Earth, Garlic Powder, and Thiamine B-1 that create a barrier from pesky insects. Garlic and Thiamine B-1 contain sulphur compounds that when ingested, creates a barrier on the surface of the skin. Typically insects are very sensitive to the sulphur odour, even at levels undetectable to humans, thus they are unwilling to land on the animal. Grape Seed Meal is exceptionally high in antioxidants. In fact, it has the highest reading among plant seeds and is almost 1,000 times higher than the grape itself. It improves the integrity of the skin, making it more difficult for insects to bite. Diatomaceous Earth is deadly to an insect, but completely harmless to animals. Diatomaceous Earth is non-toxic, crushed fossils of freshwater organisms and marine life. When you observe Diatomaceous Earth under a microscope, the particles resemble shards of broken glass. These particles, with their sharp edges, pierce the protective coating of parasites and insect larvae. In some instances, as much as 4 oz. of Diatomaceous Earth can be fed to a 1,000 lb horse for both internal and external parasites and insect control. Much less is found in Barrier, making it completely safe, yet still effective. Distillers Grain is an important ingredient. As a carrier for the other ingredients in Barrier, it contains protein, fat, minerals and vitamins. Distillers Grain is a by-product of dry mill ethanol production.
