The four legged rural athlete

New Zealand’s hard-working farm dogs are one of the biggest assets to a sheep and beef farmer, provide them with the right nutrients to help them perform.

Working dog’s muster thousands of sheep and cattle across hill and high country, a tough job that cannot be done any other way. These ‘rural athletes’ regularly cover 60 to 100 kilometers a day on big hill-country musters, much of it at 20 to 30 kilometers per hour. Understanding this has led to important improvements in their diets.

TUX Energy Extra Kibble is a high protein, high fat formulation designed to fuel high performing dogs. TUX Energy Extra provides 100 percent complete and balanced nutrition and the baked kibble format helps maintain dental health and is convenient and easy to feed. TUX Energy Extra uses only locally sourced meat and animal fats and is made up of 25 percent protein and 20 percent fat for body maintenance and better digestibility. It has a good balance of high fat and carbohydrates for energy and speed, plus it contains fibre for good gut health. 

TUX Energy Extra is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO (Association of American Feed Control Officials) Dog Nutrient Profile for Adult Maintenance.
