PRE ALPIN SENIOR

Horses without the ability to chew and are quidding hay and grass must be fed a hay replacer. 

 

Without sufficient natural raw fibre intake, your horse will lose weight, their intestinal flora will be affected and diarrhea or colics are a common consequence.

 

The basis for all horse nutrition is forage so if your veteran has difficulty ingesting this, then a sensible, proper alternative has to be fed. Trying to counteract this by feeding volumes of concentrated cereal based hard feed or high fibre substitutes of processed feed will only have short term benefits and in the long term the horses nutritional condition will worsen. Horses must have structure to the fibre they consume and this needs to be in provided by hay replacers made from grass, Pre Alpin Senior or Wiesenflakes are the perfect solution........ a haynet in a bucket!

 

Quantity: 1 kg of hay = 1kg of Senior or Wiesenflakes, horses require 1.5kg per 100kg of ideal body weight per day as a total forage replacer.

Senior can also be used for all horses who like/need a mash type feed eg. after surgery, teeth extraction, jaw problem, hydration or perhaps they just like mash type feeds.

Senior is also a perfect combo with the Alpengrun Mash for a gorgeous soft feed for horse with gut problems and as a daily feed for veterans.

MAISCOBS

Feeding high-performance sport horses or horses that are difficult to feed poses special challenges. When the ability to ingest feed is reduced, it becomes more difficult to ensure an adequate supply of energy while maintaining a sufficient amount of raw fibree. Accordingly, using energy-rich basic feed is indispensable for healthy nutrition.

The entire corn plant - stem, leaves, and cobs - is used to make AGROBS MAISCOBS. This ensures that the horse will receive not only energy, but also sufficient raw fibre without it's metabolism having to deal with too much starch.

 

The plants are harvested at the optimum time, chaffed, and immediately dried in an modern drying plant using warm air. This gentle preservation process ensures there will be no nutrient-reducing fermentation and creates a product with a high energy density.


The advantage of corn cobs lies in their high raw fibre content combined with high energy density and low protein content (6.40 % digestible raw protein). This ensures energy is released slowly and at a constant rate in the large intestine. This is a distinct benefit, especially for horses that have to perform at endurance activities such as distance, versatility and driving sports.


Nervous and temperamental horses also benefit from the high content of slow-digesting carbohydrates. Energy is released slowly and does not increase the excitability risk of nervous horses.

Maiscobs can be used as a conditioning feed.

SPECIAL NEEDS FEED

PRE ALPIN PROTEIN LIGHT FLAKES

A special blend of low protein grasses, no herbs are added.

 

Protein Light is ideal for horses requiring a low protein feed due to liver or kidney problems. Also an excellent option for Nordic breeds like Icelandic or Norwegian horses who need low protein diets.

 

Excessive protein consumption that is not matched to requirements does not improve performance, but negatively impacts the metabolism. Excess protein has to be excreted via the liver and kidneys at an additional expenditure of energy. The formation of many liver detoxifying enzymes depends on trace elements.
This means that excessive protein uptake can lead to a deficit of trace elements, which in turn may cause allergies and exzemas so the right protein content is very important and often over looked.

These flakes are quick soak and ready in 5 minutes.

HORSE ALPIN SENIOR
