How To Get The Most Out Of Feeding With Dengie Hi-Fi Original

Hi-Fi Original can be fed as the sole energy source: just add a broad-spectrum vitamin and mineral supplement or balancer.

Hi-Fi Original can also be fed as a partial hay replacer. The average section of hay weighs around 2kgs which can be replaced with 2kgs of Hi-Fi Original. As Hi-Fi Original is a short ‘chop’ it takes as long to eat as the equivalent weight of hay or haylage and so helps to keep horses occupied and satisfied. Unlike hay and haylage which can vary in nutritional content from batch to batch, Hi-Fi Original provides consistent nutrition.

Respiratory Care

The alfalfa in Hi-Fi Original is dried at a very high temperature which reduces mould. Extraction processes are used to reduce the dust content.
