ALFA-A OIL is the conditioning fibre feed for horses and ponies. The addition of rape seed oil makes this product excellent for promoting weight gain or fuelling hard work. As Alfa-A Oil is free from cereal grains it is ideal for over-excitable individuals or those prone to muscle problems.
ALFA-A OIL provides 12.5MJ/kg of slow-release energy which is equivalent to a conditioning or competition mix.
ALFA-A OIL is made from pure alfalfa which has been chopped and dried at a very high temperature to lock in the natural goodness, with a dressing of rape seed oil for additional slow release energy. Alfalfa is an excellent natural source of antioxidants.
How To Get The Most Out Of Feeding With Dengie Alfa-A Oil
Alfa-A Oil can be fed as the sole energy source, just add a broad-spectrum vitamin and mineral supplement, such as one of the Dengie Natural Vitality Vits & Mins or alternatively a feed balancer such as Dengie Alfa-A or Hi-Fi Balancer to balance the ration.
The alfalfa in Alfa-A Oil is dried at a very high temperature which reduces mould. Efficient extraction processes ensure Alfa-A Oil has a low dust content making it ideal for promoting respiratory health.
