Question: Why was the line of horse feeds and supplements updated?

Answer: The product line update was performed to combine the following brands to create the new Sollio Agriculture horse feed line:

  • Célébrité - Québec and Ontario
  • Atlantic Horse feeds - Atlantic provinces
  • Legacy Horse feeds - Atlantic provinces

We used this opportunity to capitalize on our strengths and expertise to develop even better performing products that meet the current needs of the equine customers.

We have maintained all the nutritional benefits of our products and have taken them to the next level in keeping with the latest international research in horse nutrition.

 

Question: What are the major changes made to the feeds and supplements?

Answer: Every product was carefully analyzed, and each ingredient was optimized with special attention. For example, we selected the most digestible sources of fibre, starch, and ingredients that have a positive impact on intestinal flora balance.

Then, the levels of selenium were increased across the entire product range. Sollio Agriculture’s horse feeds and supplements are always formulated with 100% organically sourced selenium.

Many new products were also introduced to meet the needs and demands of equine customers.

 

Question: Do we need to gradually transition from the old horse feed line to the new one?

Answer: Yes, when possible. If you still have the previous feed in stock, we suggest that you gradually transition to the new line over a week or two to ensure optimal consumption of the product. Horses are creatures of habit and can detect even the most subtle changes in the taste and smell of their feed.

By mixing the products together for one or two weeks, you will help your horses feel secure, making the transition easier. However, if you no longer have any of the bags of the previous formulas, do not worry. If this is the case, we suggest that you gradually introduce the new feed over a few days by starting with a smaller ration than usual.

For example, if your horse usually eats 1.5 kg of (old product) per day, you can start by serving it 500 g of (new product) for a few days, then 1 kg, and gradually increasing the portions until you reach the horse’s regular ration.

The transition period is different for every horse, but it should normally last between one to two weeks.

Answer: Sollio Agriculture’s line of horse feeds and supplements can be found at local cooperatives:

  • Agrizone and BMR - Québec and Ontario
  • Local Coop Country Store or retail locations - Atlantic provinces
