How to get the most from Dengie Alfa-A Molasses Free
Alfa-A Molasses Free is a straight feed and although alfalfa is abundant in natural nutrients a source of broad-spectrum vitamins and minerals should be added alongside to ensure a balanced diet such as Performance Vits & Mins or Alfa-A Balancer.
