Features & Benefits

The only supplement of its kind to have earned a U.S. patent. In fact, it has earned two: U.S. Patent #5000964 & #5066498
Aids in remedying nutrient deficiencies often linked to poor hoof and hair coat quality
Delivers nutritionally significant levels of biotin, methionine, zinc methionine and yeast culture in a very palatable oatmeal and molasses-based pellet, which will minimize wastage and provide visual assurance of intake


Biotime is truly a unique nutrition supplement for the hoof and coat. Since poor quality hooves and rough, dry hair coats can result from several nutrient deficiencies and/or the diminished ability to metabolize these nutrients, Biotime takes a multi-nutrient approach toward the prevention of these conditions.

Biotime’s wide range of nutrients are supplied in a very palatable oatmeal and molasses-based pellet, which can easily be top-dressed over your horse's feed or fed alone. The small scoop enclosed in each package of Biotime holds approximately a 1-oz. feeding, which is recommended for horses with poor quality hooves and/or dry, rough hair coats.

While positive results have been reported much earlier, several weeks or even months of supplementation may be necessary before the full benefits of Biotime can be seen.

Their quality is excellent

“I have been using McCauley’s feeds for over 10 years on a variety of horses, from elite eventers to foxhunters, ponies, pleasure horses and retired horses. McCauley’s has products that provide nutrition for all these types and more. Their quality is excellent, and they truly care about the horse’s well-being. Plus, they are always available to answer questions and help provide solutions.”

An integral part of my horses’ health and careers

“McCauleys Feeds have been an integral part of my horses’ health and careers for a long time now and I couldn’t be happier! Their weight is easily manageable with all the different selections of feed and their skin and coats are as healthy and beautiful as they can get with the fortification that goes into each bag. I regularly have people ask me what I feed my horses because they’re so shiny and dappled.”

The secret weapon in our program

“McCauley’s Alam® has been the secret weapon in our program, responsible for retraining and rehoming Thoroughbreds for the largest aftercare organization in the country. Whether our new arrivals have issues with ulcers or are off their grain, we have seen a miraculous difference in weight gain, behavior and appetite within a matter of weeks. We have previously tried every competitor’s grain with identical management and we see unwanted behaviors persist. In addition, despite feeding the manufacturer’s recommended amounts, desired weight gain has been slow. Alam® provides our horses with cool energy and prepares them to step into their new jobs and excel, powered by the best formula on the market.”

The quality is the best on the market

“Any athlete knows that what we put into our bodies is massively important, not only for being able to perform at the highest levels, but also for recovery and repair — and the same goes for horses, of course. With McCauley’s I’ve been able to work with their nutritionists to tailor a different feeding plan for each horse. I believe the quality is the best on the market and it’s also one of the most cost-effective, mainly in that my horses would never dream of wasting it; they always run to their feed buckets to eat and that, in itself, is a huge selling point for me.”

I can’t imagine feeding anything else

“I have been a McCauley’s Feed customer for 20 years, and I can’t imagine feeding anything else. I run a busy retraining and boarding business with multiple young Thoroughbreds transitioning from racing to sport horse careers. With the great nutrition and expert advice from McCauley’s, these horses have changed from lean runners to beefy show horses with glossy coats and strong hoof growth. I also manage a handful of retirees and some insulin resistant horses. Having the vast variety in available feeds means I always know each horse is getting exactly what they need to thrive!”
