Equi-Chaff is a new technology for fibre feeds to be fed alongside concentrates and replace forage or roughage.
n
nAfter water, fibre is the most important dietary requirement for any horse. Horses are natural fibre digester’s, with more than two-thirds of the horse’s digestive capacity almost entirely devoted to the digestion and absorption of nutrients from fibre.
n
nFibre is found in many feed substances, such as in grass, hay, chaffs, cubes and mixes. Ensuring horses receive fibre in at least 50% of their diet satisfies both their physical need for fibre to maintain a healthy digestive function and tract, as well as their psychological need to chew for 60% of the time as a form of activity.
