What is correct analysis for horse roughage?
  • Our analysis is adjusted for use in horses, not based on cows
  • Carbohydrates are broken into simple sugars, water soluble sugars, fructan, starch. This is important for the feeding management of carbohydrate compromised horses
  • The splitting of structural sugars gives us an impression of the time sugars are released (Sugar Index)
  • The ‘raw protein’ quality is judged by nitrate and lysine content.
You can have your hay, haylage, silage and grass analyzed!!



What can you do with our analysis?

Our analysis gives clear cut information about what we can do:
  • soaking
  • balancing calcium, magnesium, phosphorus
  • treating high iron or manganese with extra zinc and copper
  • extra salt if there is sodium deficiency or excessive protein
  • add protein/lysine if there are shortages
  • add special herbs to help with certain imbalances
  • add extra cereals

Our analysis includes also a tailored feeding advice!!

With us, you do not have to consult a special nutrition expert. We give an advice, based on the analytic results. We indicate how the minerals are divided and how to balance. For instance how the Ca:P:Mg is and what minerals in what quantity have to be added to obtain optimum balance for your horse’s needs. The same goes for the trace elements iron/manganese to balance with zinc and copper.
