As the nutritional value of grass decreases, this is the time that horses are most likely to start to lose condition, particularly if they are older or in work.
Dengie’s range of grass products are the ideal way of counteracting the decline in pasture quality. Produced using only the finest ingredients, Dengie Meadow Lite with Herbs, Meadow Grass with Herbs & Oil, Pure Grass and Pure Grass Pellets are made from 100% natural ingredients and are FREE from:
- Artificial preservatives, flavours and additives
- Molasses – no added sugar
- Cereals and cereal by-products
Our lowest calorie feed providing just 5MJ/kg of Digestible Energy. Soft, tasty meadow grasses are blended with high-quality oat straw to offer a low-calorie feed which does not compromise on chew time. The inclusion of postbiotics supports the gut microbiota for general health and wellbeing. It is a straight feed so can be used in the bucket feed to slow consumption of balancers, mixes and cubes or it can be fed ad-lib as a low calorie forage replacer.
Combining high temperature dried grass with a rape seed oil coating, Meadow Grass with Herbs & Oil is a naturally sweet, tasty way to provide additional fibre and calories. It can be fed in the bucket to extend chew time and promote better digestion or it can be fed in larger quantities as a partial forage replacer (up to 1kg per 100kg of bodyweight). Just fill a large trug or bucket and let your horse browse on it overnight alongside his hay or haylage.
A naturally nutritious 100% chopped grass feed with absolutely nothing else added! Made from pure grasses including Fescue, Rye and Meadow Grass, Dengie Pure Grass is soft, easy to chew and highly palatable.
Simply 100% naturally grown meadow grass with no added sugar. High in fibre and highly-digestible Dengie Pure Grass Pellets are ideal for snack balls and can be fed as a partial hay replacer. To reduce the risk of choke when fed as the sole feed without chopped fibre alongside and for those that struggle to chew please soak Grass Pellets prior to feeding – as a pure fibre pellet, at times the Grass Pellets can absorb lots of water and swell.
