Horses with moderate energy requirements needing additional slow release calories
Those on a low starch diet needing an additional energy source
Poorer-doers whose traditional forage intake is limited
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.
