Description

The horse’s daily requirement in fibre represents 15 to 18% of his daily ration (concentrate feed + forage). In addition to its’ value to the digestive system and the horses mental well-being, hay is an important source of energy.

Nevertheless, this energy is often ignored when calculating a ration for a horse. That’s why, in order to help you formulate a balanced ration, we are able to analyse your hay’s main analytical constituents:

  • Dry matter
  • Protein
  • Plant walls : Cellulose, NDF, ADF, ADL
  • Ash
  • Total soluble sugars

The energy value of the hay will follow on from these values, expressed in EFU (Equine Forage Units (UFC - Unité Fourragère Cheval)) and the protein level expressed as digestible protein.

The EFU (Equine Forage Units (UFC - Unité Fourragère Cheval)) and digestible protein values of your hay can be used in order to draw-up a daily ration (hay + concentrate feed or vitamin and mineral supplement) suited to your horses’ workload and physiological stage: contact us.

How to well sample?

The aim is to obtain a representative sample of your hay stocks.

Small bales

Randomly choose 10 to 20 bales, avoiding outside bales or those on the top of the stack. Take 1 to 2 handfuls from the inside of each bale (ideally the bales should be opened).

Place the different handfuls in a bucket and mix very carefully (to avoid leaves breaking and falling to the bottom of the container).

After homogenisation, only keep 10 handfuls, or around 300g.

Big bales (round or square)

Randomly choose 5 to 10 bales, avoiding outside bales or those on the top of the stack. Take 1 handful in 3 different places from the inside of each bale (ideally the bales should be opened).

Place the different handfuls in a bucket and mix very carefully (to avoid leaves breaking and falling to the bottom of the container).

After homogenisation, only keep 10 handfuls, or around 300g.
