Semhof Bio alfalfa chop Single have a high crude fibre content due to the sieving of the fine particles (leaves). They stimulate the chewing function of the horse and, in combination with other feeds, promote selective eating behaviour. This significantly prolongs the feed intake time. At the same time, alfalfa provides high-quality protein in low concentrations. The energy content is also very low.
The Semhof alfalfahäcksel Single can be used as a feed component for horses with insulin resistance, EMS, Cushing's, PSSM and laminitis. By partially replacing hay with alfalfahäcksel Single, you can drastically reduce the percentage of ethanol-soluble sugar in the feed and thus save time-consuming hay washing (which also washes out many good ingredients from the hay and reduces hay quality).
In practice, for example, you replace 1 kg of hay with 0.8-1 kg of Semhof Bio alfalfahäcksel and can normally (depending on today's situation) do without hay washing (immerse hay in water for one hour).
Long feeding times are a further advantage of the alfalfa chaff. They can also be combined with hay in a hay net or incorporated into the concentrated feed ration. They are also suitable for horses that should receive little or no concentrated feed.
When feeding oats, barley or maize, the mixture with the alfalfa chaff is an excellent combination. On the one hand, the phosphorus contained in the grain is balanced by the high calcium content of the alfalfa. Furthermore, the feeding of alfalfa chaff mixed with oat grains leads to significantly better salivation. The increased number of thimbles in this way prevents over-acidification with stomach ulcers as a result. The selective eating behaviour of the horse is also promoted and has a calming and harmonising effect.
Also excellent as "concentrated feed" for Icelanders and eczemas as well as all light horses and breeds!
When harvesting our alfalfa, we take great care to meet the respective demands of different horses in their species.
Semhof Bio alfalfa chop Single are by no means overloaded and can therefore be gently integrated into the horse's digestive metabolism. They have no leaf content and therefore have a particularly high crude fibre content and no fine particles. Especially suitable for horses with respiratory problems. Due to the high crude fibre content, the Häcksle Single is excellently suited as a good balance to low structured feed.
We know our products exactly and know when and how to use them best. Our advice is non-binding and free of charge, honest and competent.
