About Us: A Historical Context

Back in the late 1970’s there was a movement in the US which envisioned energy independence based on every farm having its own alcohol plant. Grain grown for livestock feed would first be fermented for alcohol and then what remained would be fed to livestock.

 

 

EquiLix

EquiLix - 50 lb Lick
Vitamin, mineral anddDigestive aid for all classes of horses. A non-molasses horse lick supplement which combiness a complete vitamin, mineral and digestive aid package with buffers to help settle gastric distress.

At a much earlier time, and continuing into the 1940’s, many small farmers steeped barley before feeding to livestock—“slopping the hogs,” as it was called when feeding pigs.

While both of these areas faded over time due to various influences such as economies of scale, elements relating to the fermented feeds have been embraced and refined by SweetPro Feeds. As an example, early farm scale ethanol plants, which, of necessity, had used low temperature cooking, were unable to distill whole mash, so the liquid portion was screened out separately for distilling. The remaining thick mash still contained significant amounts of alcohol and all the yeast and enzymes used to ferment were never subjected to the killing temperatures of distilling.

Many of the dairymen using this feed found themselves in the awkward position of overflowing their dairy’s bulk tanks because the cows were so much more productive.

The steeped barley of yesteryear was often times germinating and thus releasing a multitude of enzymes needed for initial plant growth. Those enzymes coupled with fermented starches made a powerful improvement in feed utilization. But in the end, the cumbersome techniques and difficulty with storage and labor took their toll and these approaches faded away.

The science behind these low tech procedures, however, was anything but low tech. Probiotic proliferation was rampant, yeast and their nutralites increased, phytic acid tie-up of minerals was eliminated. In short, the science was exceptional but the mechanics were too limiting.

SweetPro Feeds has managed to overcome the mechanical limitation, seize the science and indeed, take the science to new levels with organic complexed trace minerals and prebiotic oligosaccharides plus Beta-glucan, to deliver maximum performance potential. Low temperature cooking is standard, natural amylolytic, fibrolytic and proteolytic enzymes are at work, and a blend of cereal grains (wheat, oats, and barley malt) plus flax are used in fermentation to assure the most complementary amino acid profile is available to help your horse build muscle.

Everything about SweetPro’s ProBiotein processing is geared toward improving nutrient utilization, which in turn reflects itself in improved animal health, performance and feed utilization. All without “breaking the bank.”

There are lots of fermented feeds in the marketplace, but nothing quite like SweetPro’s ProBiotein, where the emphasis is on fermentation as the primary objective, not a byproduct. Also a blend of complementary nutrients is embraced over reliance on a single “silver bullet.” EquiPride® and EquiLix® are especially rewarding products for SweetPro because they do so much for animals that people care so much about.

The impact has been greater than in production agriculture and the many stories of remarkable recoveries are very gratifying. We are pleased to be part of the equine industry and grateful for the wonderful reception our products are getting.
