The Semhof Organic Lucerne Pellets Topline are the absolute "pearl" among all our Lucerne products. They stand out due to their particularly low sugar content (natural plant sugar) and thus make them an absolute diet product. Their energy content is lower than in hay.
With its simultaneously high nutrient density, Lucerne Topline provides essential amino acids, quantitative and trace elements as well as vitamins in natural form and on an organic basis. Topline alfalfa pellets are particularly suitable for light, sugar- and insulin-sensitive horse breeds.
Their low total sugar relieves the liver and keeps the blood sugar stable. Thanks to its high content of essential nutrients, Lucerne Topline also relieves the strain and at the same time stabilises and builds up the horse's ability to regenerate itself. Essential amino acids are protein building blocks, which must be taken up daily with the food. These are contained in the alfalfa in a good composition with a lot of lysine and provide a very good basis, which the body needs for the renewal and regeneration of tissue and a variety of enzymes and hormones. Even the immune system consists of proteins and zinc.
With its high crude fibre content, alfalfa Topline can also be gently integrated into the horse's digestive processes.
Crude fibre is a very important parameter when horses, for example, get too little or no hay and therefore have no other sufficient source of crude fibre.
Due to these special features, the Semhof Organic Lucerne Pellets Topline relieve the metabolism to a maximum. It is incredibly flexible and highly recommended if a metabolic problem is suspected, especially for light-footed horses, EMS horses, deer horses, sugar- and insulin-sensitive breeds, eczema, PSSM horses, animals in convalescence, COPD-ill horses, Cushing horses and many more.
In addition: By partially replacing hay with Lucerne Topline, you can drastically reduce the percentage of ethanol-soluble sugar in your 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 can replace 1-2 kg of hay with 1 kg of Semhof Organic Lucerne Topline and normally (depending on today's situation) do without hay washing (immerse hay in water for one hour). The same procedure is possible with the Topline alfalfa choppers.
There will never be much sugar with the Semhof Bio Topline. Due to its many special features and the difficulty of finding the right harvest time year after year, this alfalfa may not always be available.
Also excellently suited as "concentrated feed" for Icelanders and eczema sufferers as well as all light-fodder horses and breeds!

You can feed Semhof Bio alfalfapellets Topline soaked or dry. When fed wet, a ratio of 1:2 (1 cup lucerne 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, you can generally administer the pellets dry. Also suitable for dosage via automatic feeders.
