Dried grass. 40 x 10kg-12kg* wrapped bales





Dried Grass is very useful for poor doers and senior horses that require extra calories, especially if they are poor forage eaters as it’s quite palatable.

High levels of digestible fibre

High feed value can reduce concentrate feeding

Suitable for forage and concentrate rations

Short chop forage prolongs feeding time

Dried grass can be useful if your grazing is poor due to the ground being too dry or too wet.

Dried Grass is great for a  low water-soluble carbohydrate (sugar) diet such as laminitics.

There is no getting round the fact that grass is the most natural food for horses.

It is highly palatable, has nothing added and, importantly, is dust-free. With a higher feed value than fresh grass, which is around 90% water, it can be used to either supplement or replace hard feed.

Harvested between April and October on a four-week rotation, the grass is cut by a mower, then dried gently on a flat bed at up to 100øC.

You may find fragments of shattered leaf in the end product, but this should not be confused with dust, which is extracted during production. By the time the grass is baled it is 95% dry and retains its green colour until exposed to light, when it turns pale. Once the plastic bale is opened, the product will not deteriorate provided it is kept cool and dry.

Due to the way pure dried grass is digested in the hind gut, energy is made available to the horse over a long period. It is ideal for all equines, from ponies to hunters and eventers to endurance horses. With a 3% natural sugar content and a 2:1 calcium:phosphorous ratio, it is nutritious and suitable for both low forage and high starch diets. More than a “chop”, it has a high feed value and can replace part of the concentrate feed for horses in hard work, or most of the concentrate feed for others.
