LATEST research is showing that the rate of feed intake is crucial to the health of the digestive system. Large cereal based meals are consumed too quickly and increase the rate of passage through the gut, reducing absorption and utilisation of the feed – a complete waste of money!
Using chopped fibre such as Alfa-A Original increases chew time and slows the rate of passage of feed through the gut – fibre included in mixes and cubes does not have the same effect.
More chewing also produces more saliva which helps to neutralise the excess acidity generated by feeding cereals.
Plus, the minerals naturally present in alfalfa are easier for the horse to absorb.
The end result is a much healthier horse on the inside and exceptional condition that you can see on the outside.
