Roughly structured hay chaff has a positive effect on digestion because it promotes chewing. AGROBS has made use of this knowledge, not least in order to counteract the widespread overfeeding of horses with grain and resulting problems.
PRE ALPIN ASPERO is made up of over 60 different field grasses and herbs from Bavarian foothills of the Alps, which are harvested at the right moment in time and dried in a state-of-the-art warm air drying plant. We pay special attention to ensuring the right chaff length in order to produce an ideal structured feed, which is unique in terms of its many areas of useage.
Careful processing ensures that PRE ALPIN ASPERO, like all PRE ALPIN products, is rich in nutrients and vital substances and free of dust and mildew spores. It is therefore a high-qualitiy, clean alternative to hay or silage. As an energy-dense structural feed low in starch and sugar, it can be used to replace concentrated feed.
- with over 60 different field grasses and herbs
- free of dust and mildew
- rough-structure fiber
- low starch and fructan content
- free of molasses
AREAS OF USE
- as basic feed (100 % hay substitute)
- for enhancement of hay, silage, pasture
- in case of respiratory problems due to dust and mould in the basic feed
- as substitute and supplementation for concentrated feed
- mix in with the concentrated feed for extended feeding time
- for horses that are very temperamental or exciteable
Aspero consists mainly of slow-to-digest carbohydrates. It releases energy slowly, ensuring that excitability/nervousness are not increased.
- for horses that need a lot of energy and receive large amounts of concentrated feed, as well as horses with high acidity
Thanks to its high energy density, Aspero can be used to replace grain in the ration. This relieves horses from large starch volumes and helps avoid hyperacidity.
- for horses that have to be fed a diet low in starch and sugar
Aspero consists exclusively of field grasses and herbs that have been dried using warm air, plus 2 percent cold-pressed linseed oil. No grain, molasses etc. are added. We also place great importance on ensuring low fructan content.
- to prolong feeding times
for horses and ponies that receive only little manger fodder. When mixed with manger fodder, Aspero - thanks to its substantial volume - increases the amount of manger fodder.
- for horses that gulp down their food
- in case of unrest and jealousy about food
- to stimulate the production of saliva
The rough structure forces the horse to feed more slowly and to moisten the manger fodder more thoroughly with saliva, which has positive effects on digestion. It also helps ensure balanced tooth abrasion and satisfies the need to chew. Unrest and jealousy about food are avoided.
