Semhof Organic Green Millet from the whole plant is an excellent substitute for concentrated feed with significantly less stress on the stomach, intestinal tract and metabolism than is the case when feeding cereal grains. Green millet is a very good alternative, especially for horses that cannot tolerate oats in any form. Green millet can also be used as a change in taste, e.g. as a substitute for green oats.
In contrast to pure grain, the minimal starch contained in green millet is distributed over the entire plant. The energy content is almost as high as that of oats in the grain, as the raw fiber is very high quality and easy to digest. Green millet is particularly suitable for horses that are sensitive to digestion and difficult to feed; so also for horses with stomach ulcers. A suitable feed also for horses that need a milder energy feed compared to cereal grains for performance compensation or for weight gain. Green millet could also be a suitable feedstuff for building up substances in horses that are sensitive to the metabolism.

You can feed Semhof Organic Green Millet soaked or dry. When fed wet, a ratio of 1:2 (1 cup green oat pellets and 2 cups water) with a short swelling time of 10-45 minutes is ideal. Dry feeding is also possible for horses that eat slowly and thus salivate sufficiently. For smaller doses, e.g. as a treat, you can generally administer the pellets dry.
