HF Alfalfa contains pure alfalfa (Medicago sativa) selected stems, sun-cured or dehydrated and compressed into pellets through a mechanical process that involves no chemical additives or glues.
Fiber-based forage ideal for overweight horses and ponies’ maintenance, as well as for senior animals.
HF Alfalfa is ideal for the maintenance diet of horses and other equids, thanks to:
• its high content of cellulose
• its low levels of starch and sugar (below 12)
• its balanced Calcium to Phosphorus ratio
• its low-energy content
HF Alfalfa is perfect for animals needing limitation of calorific intake (BCS ≥ 3/5) but supplying good quantities of calcium and lysine.
Thanks to its long-lasting buffering action, HF Alfalfa is a valuable aid to horses affected by gastric ulcer syndrome (EGUS). Thanks to its low level of non-structural carbohydrates (NSC) HF Alfalfa is the first-choice feed for horses and ponies
that are prone to NSC (starch/sugar/fructans) associated disorders, such as laminitis, colic, metabolic syndrome, cushing, chronic diarrhea, gastric ulcers) or for those animals already affected by such conditions. For its relatively low protein content
and a good level of lysine, HF Alfalfa is an ideal feed for senior horses and horses with kidney-related problems.
