Highly digestible, Alfafuel small bales is a high-quality forage of only alfalfa (Medicago sativa) selected, dehydrated, chopped, cleared of dust and packed in sealed airtight small-sized bales.
Alfafuel is the ideal highly digestible fibre-based protein supplement for a balanced diet of horses and other equids thanks to:
Its high content of cellulose.
Its exceptional protein content with high levels of lysine (essential amino acid).
Its low levels of starch and sugar (below 12%).
Its high content of calcium, potassium and iron.
Alfauel retains the typical fragrancy and colour of recently harvested forage.
Alfafuel has its main field of use in the planning of a horse ration that requires additional protein intake of high biological value such as in reproduction, lactation, growth development and during several pathological conditions.
Given its high calcium content, we advise to add a source of phosphorus to the diet.
Thanks to its long-lasting buffering action, it is a valuable aid to horses affected by gastric ulcer syndrome (EGUS).
Thanks to its low content of NSC (non structural carbohydrates) it is the first-choice feed for horses and ponies that are prone to carbohydrates-associated disorders (laminitis, colic, equine metabolic syndrome, equine Cushing/PPID, chronic diarrhoea, and gastric ulcers) or those already affected by such conditions.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
We suggest feeding Alfalfuel up to 15%-35% of the total daily forage supply (i.e kg 1.5-3.5 per day for a horse of kg 500 of bodyweight).
We advise supplying wheat bran (a source of Phosphorus) at gr 250-500 every kilo of Alfafuel.
We also recommend providing horses a free access to regular supply of clean fresh water and plain white table salt.
