Why Alfalfa Feeds?
Extremely palatable, alfalfa feeds are sure to be a big hit with your hose. This nutritious forage feed is high in protein, vitamins and minerals including calcium. It helps to regulate gut acidity and is low in starch and sugar. Alfalfa is naturally rich in beta carotene which is converted to vitamin A in the body. This forage feed also features vitamin E and the B vitamins Thiamin, Riboflavin, Pantothenic acid, Biotin and Folic acid. It contains cobalt, a trace mineral which enables horses to synthesize vitamin B12 which is important for iron absorption.
Veterinarians often recommend feeding alfalfa to horses after colic surgery, when they are not permitted to eat grain. Substituting some of your horse's concentrated grain pellets and grass hay with alfalfa may address digestive upsets.
It is important to note that alfalfa is high in calories and so should be fed in moderation to prevent weight gain. Horses love it, but don’t let them love it too much!
