The Healthy Horse Full Nutritional Analysis identifies the nutritional content of your hay or haylage.
Horses consume a large amount of forage so it is important to know the nutritional content through scientific analysis. The analysis is carried out by an international laboratory using high-tech, near-infrared technology to identify a full range of data – Dry Matter, Digestible Energy, Crude Protein, Acid Detergent Fibre, Neutral Detergent Fibre, Water Soluble Carbohydrates, ESC (Simple Sugars), Starch, and Non-Fibre Carbohydrates. (Both starch and Ethanol Soluble Carbohydrates (sugar) levels are especially essential for those owners managing Laminitics. We provide full details and support on how to obtain an accurate sample of your forage for the laboratory.
