It is a common sense observation: horses have evolved, over millions of years, to what they are today primarily on the consumption of forages (fibre). It then follows that horses should be fed a forage dominant diet and that non-fibrous feeds, such as grain or concentrate, are not natural to the horse.
Your horse’s digestive system is delicate. Horses have a long and intricate large intestine and have a fine balance of important microbes in their hindgut. Feeding your horse too much grain or concentrate feed (or not enough forage) can disturb this balance and have serious health implications for your horse including gastric ulceration, colic, acidosis and laminitis.
Feeding your horse fibre is always the safest and healthiest option. However, until now fibre sources, such as sun-dried hays and chaffs, lacked the energy levels to deliver winning performances. Valuable nutrients were lost through wilting and storage and in many other fibre products, such as pelleted lucerne and sugar beet, processing and packaging advances have not been sufficient to adequately retain vital energy and nutrients. But now, with the development of Fiber Fresh has tipped ‘s unique fermentation process, there is now a safe fibre feed that provides superior energy levels and unparalleled benefits.
All our feed products are made through our unique fresh system of forage harvesting and preservation. Our products are harvested moist, sealed in airtight packages within 12 hours, and preserved by Controlled Fermentation™ (FiberMix®, FiberEzy®, FiberSure®) or Modified Bio Fermentation™ (FiberProtect® ,FiberEdge® and FiberBoost ® (as opposed to being sun-dried) for maximum nutrient retention.
It has been scientifically proven that, due to the advanced proprietary processing techniques, Fiber Fresh feeds have superior digestible energy and protein and amino acid digestibility, than traditional dried forms of forage and is the most effective and beneficial forage for your horse.
