Description

The original pure alfalfa fibre feed with a light molasses coating, providing quality natural nutrients for working horses and ponies.

 

Key Features

  • A high fibre feed providing 10MJ/kg of Digestible Energy, which is comparable to a cool mix or cube
  • Made from pure alfalfa which is proven to aid digestive health and buffer acidity in the digestive tract
  • Contains naturally occurring vitamins and minerals, rich in calcium, making it ideal for breeding and young stock

 

How To Get The Most Out Of Feeding With Dengie Alfa-A Original

Alfa-A Original can be fed on its own or it can be combined with cubes or a mix for those horses with a higher energy requirement. If you are feeding Alfa-A Original as the sole feed, use a broad-spectrum vitamin and mineral supplement or balancer.

 

Respiratory Care

The alfalfa in Alfa-A Original is dried at a very high temperature to reduce the risk of mould. Efficient extraction processes ensure Alfa-A Original has a low dust content to promote a healthy respiratory system.
