Baileys Feed Ingredients

INGREDIENT
IMAGE
MAIN DIET CONTRIBUTION
MICRONISED SOYA
ORIGIN: South America
ATTRIBUTES:
The best source of good quality vegetable protein. Whole beans are carefully micronised to optimise digestibility.
SUNFLOWER EXTRACT
ORIGIN: France
ATTRIBUTES:
A nutritious by-product left once the oil has been extracted from sunflower seeds. It is a useful source of (quality) protein and fibre.
DISTILLER'S GRAIN
ORIGIN: UK
ATTRIBUTES:
When grain is distilled, all the carbohydrate is converted to alcohol. The remainder is a concentrated source of (quality) protein and some fibre.
SOYA BEAN MEAL
ORIGIN: UK
ATTRIBUTES:
This is what is left once the oil has been extracted from the beans and is therefore an even more concentrated source of good quality protein than the whole beans.
MICRONISED PEAS
ORIGIN: UK
ATTRIBUTES:
Like soya beans, peas are a member of the legume family and are micronised to improve digestibility and are a useful source of protein and calories.
WHEAT-FEED
ORIGIN: UK
ATTRIBUTES:
Again, a by-product from milling for human consumption, this was traditionally known as “middlings” and is the outer layer of the wheat grain - which has no husk like the oat – plus some residual grain inner. This gives it a moderate calorie and protein content.
OATS
ORIGIN: UK
ATTRIBUTES:
Traditionally fed to horses for hundreds of years, oats contain starch in a form which is quite digestible so does not require cooking. They are reasonably high in fibre, compared to other cereals.
MICRONISED BARLEY
ORIGIN: UK
ATTRIBUTES:
A good source of calories which was traditionally fed to promote condition, especially when boiled. Micronising is the most effective cooking method and results in a tasty, digestible flattened grain.
MICRONISED WHEAT
ORIGIN: UK
ATTRIBUTES:
This has one of the highest calorie contents of all cereals and is rendered highly digestible through our meticulous micronising process. A very useful energy source, which may also be ground and included in pellets and cubes
MICRONISED MAIZE
ORIGIN: France
ATTRIBUTES:
Micronising optimises digestibility of the starch content and creates a light open flake. Like wheat and barley, it has a negligible fibre and protein content as a proportion of the whole grain.
SOYA OIL
ORIGIN: UK
ATTRIBUTES:
One of the most popular vegetable oils used in horse feed, soya is rich in Omega 6 fatty acids. It can be included in some pellets or cubes and is a major component in Outshine, which is then included in some of our mixes to increase the overall oil content.
MICRONISED LINSEED MEALS
ORIGIN: UK
ATTRIBUTES:
This oil-rich seed also has a reasonable protein content and is micronised, to optimise digestibility, then incorporated into pellets. It is also a key ingredient in Outshine and a rich source of Omega 3 fatty acids.
OATFEED
ORIGIN: UK
ATTRIBUTES:
This is a by-product from the milling of oats for human consumption and includes the fibrous husks and outer layer of the grain. This makes it a popular source of digestible fibre with a negligible residual starch content.
NUTRITIONALLY IMPROVED STRAW
ORIGIN: UK
ATTRIBUTES:
This is subjected to a process very similar to the early stages of its passage through the gut, thus improving digestibility
BEET PULP
ORIGIN: UK
ATTRIBUTES:
This is what is left after the sugar has been extracted (removed) and is rich in highly digestible superfibres, making it a useful source of “non-starch” calories.
SOYA HULLS
ORIGIN: South America
ATTRIBUTES:
The outer husk of the soya bean which is a rich source of superfibres and also provides some protein.
ALFALFA / ALFALFA MEAL
ORIGIN: UK
ATTRIBUTES:
May be ground and included in a pellet or is dried and chopped and included in a number of our mixes or blends.
