Cool Command Controlled Starch

Horse feeds made with decreased levels of carbohydrates are often a great option for horses with metabolic-related concerns. Cool Command® Controlled Starch contains the optimal level of protein, mineral and vitamin fortification to meet the specific nutrient demands of your horse without the addition of extra carbohydrates. Energy levels are instead maintained via plant oils.

About the Product

Why choose Cool Command horse feeds?

Cool Command horse feeds are made with 100% organic Alltech® trace minerals. Organic trace minerals are more easily absorbed, retained and utilized, thereby contributing to better overall health and immune function, in addition to improved exercise performance and recovery.

Cool Command's high-quality equine nutrition aids in improving skin, hair and hoof condition, and the decreased starch levels offer cool energy for horses who generate enough of their own.
