THIS FEED IS AVAILABLE IN STORE ONLY – CANNOT BE PURCHASED ONLINE
Harvested from perennial meadows, growing in the foothills of the Bavarian Pre-Alps, in southern Germany, Natural Meadow Cobs contain an appetising blend of up to 60 different species of naturally-occurring meadow grasses, wildflowers and herbs, and are high in fibre, yet low in sugars, starch and calories as the plants have been left to mature before cutting. They are then coarsely chopped and high-temperature dried – in a facility powered by renewable biomass-fuelled electricity – and pressed into chunky cobs.
Nothing added, nothing taken away!
Natural Meadow Cobs contain no added vitamins and minerals so can be fed alongside an existing balanced diet, as an appetising additional fibre source, without causing any nutritional imbalances. They’re also molasses-, grain- and alfalfa-free with only low levels of naturally occurring sugars.
High fibre forage alternative
The grasses are harvested at a point when fibre content is at its highest and comprises higher levels of structural fibre than many other soaked fibre sources, making them ideal as a replacement for long forages, like hay, haylage or grass.
The next best thing to fresh grass!
The aroma and texture of fresh grasses is brought out by soaking, making Natural Meadow Cobs perfect for tempting fussy or poor forage eaters, including working or performance horses, while also being ideal for those who struggle with grazing and chewing forages.
When can they be fed?
- Alongside any existing balanced diet.
- As a replacement for, or in addition to, beet, chaff or unbalanced fibre mashes
- As a “bulker” with a balancer
- As a FULL or partial forage replacement or forage/fibre alternative
For Every Equine
