Product informations

HF Alfalfa – High Fiber Alfalfa contains pure selected stems of alfalfa (Medicago sativa), dehydrated and compressed into pellets through a mechanical process that involves no chemical additives or glues.

It is the perfect fiber-based forage for overweight horses and ponies’ maintenance, as well as for senior animals.

HF Alfalfa is ideal for the maintenance diet of horses and other equids, thanks to:

• its high content of cellulose
• its low levels of starch and sugar (below 12%)
• its balanced Calcium to Phosphorus ratio
• its low-energy content

HF Alfalfa is perfect for animals needing a limitation of energy intake (BCS ≥ 3/5) but supplying good quantities of calcium and lysine. 
Thanks to its long-lasting buffering action, HF Alfalfa is a valuable aid to horses affected by gastric ulcer syndrome (EGUS).
Thanks to its low level of non-structural carbohydrates (NSC) HF Alfalfa is the first-choice feed for horses and ponies prone to NSC (starch/sugar/fructans) associated disorders, such as laminitis, colic, metabolic syndrome, cushing, chronic diarrhea, gastric ulcers) or for those animals already affected by such conditions.
For its relatively low protein content and a good level of lysine, HF Alfalfa is an ideal feed for senior horses and horses with kidney-related problems.

Instructions for use

It is advised to feed HF Alfalfa as 20%-50% of the total daily forage supply (2.5 kg per day for a horse weighing 500 kg).

It is recommended to provide horses free access to a regular source of clean fresh water and salt.
