FiberLUCERNE
 
 
  • Being completely dust-free with a high moisture content, it helps to keep horses hydrated and enhances feed palatability. When added to your regular hard feed, FiberLUCERNE slows consumption and encourages chewing which increases saliva production- this will assist in maintaining optimum gastric health.

    FiberLUCERNE contain natural beneficial yeasts and is rich in vitamin A&E, with good levels of available calcium. The addition of Lucerne to the diet is well researched for it's ability to maintain good gastric pH levels and therefore reduce the likelihood of adverse gastric conditions.

  • When planning a diet, the most important consideration is that a horse must receive at least 1.5% of it's body weight in forage fibre dry matter(e.g. hay, pasture and/or FiberLUCERNE) per day. The rest of the diet must then be balanced according to the quality and composition of that forage fibre and the physiological demands of the horse e.g. growth, lactation, extra energy for exercise, protein etc.
    FiberLUCERNE.

    FiberLUCERNE is an ideal high-fibre forage source to complement your regular hard feed.

    FiberLUCERNE can be fed on it's own in the feed bowl or mixed with supplements/hard feed.

    When introducing to the diet, increase daily amount by 0.5kg increments until the desired quantity is reached.

    We recommend feeding a minimum of 2kg per day. Most horses do best on 4kg-6kg of FiberLUCERNE per day if it's the sole fibre source. Additional energy in the form of concentrate feeds, and/or oils can be included in the feed bowl.

    Pony 1-2 kg per day
    Horses In Light Work / Spelling / Maintenance 2-5 kg per day
    High Performance 4-5 kg per day
    Weanlings / Yearlings 2-3 kg per day
