Baileys' Fibre Range products may be fed simply as an additional source of fibre-based slow release calories and, when fed in smaller quantities (0.5 – 1kg per meal), may be added to the compound feed to encourage chewing, slow consumption and also slow the rate of passage through the digestive system.  If the maximum meal size is met with mix or cube alone, Baileys Fibre Range can be fed in a separate bucket. 

Alfalfa Plus Oil is pure high-temperature dried chopped alfalfa with a generous coating of soya oil, which brings the overall oil content up to 11.5% and gives it an increased energy content equivalent to that of some conditioning or competition feeds.  With its high digestible fibre content and extra oil, it is an excellent option for adding slow release calories to a horse’s diet and, as alfalfa is naturally high in quality protein, it can also help build muscle and top line. 
 
Alfalfa Plus Oil contains no added sugar or molasses and is low starch so is ideal for horses whose starch intake needs to be controlled, whilst still requiring calories for performance or condition, like those prone to laminitis or tying-up.  It is also particularly suitable as a partial forage replacement when forage has been identified as being nutritionally poor and the horse in question is not a good-doer.

FEEDING TIPS

For horses needing a very low starch diet, alongside forage, Alfalfa Plus Oil can be fed in place of a mix or cube, with the recommended amount of Lo-Cal, Performance or Stud balancer to provide the necessary vitamins and minerals.  Outshine high oil supplement can also be added to provide further slow release “non-starch” calories for condition or performance.
