You can feed varying amounts of Fodder as part of the diet; the options are as mentioned below, basically the thumb rule of feed is 2 to 3 percent of the animal’s body weight.

Benefits:

Dairy Cattle:-

  •  Improved milk yields in herds with a very low quantity & quality of alternative feed available.
  • Improvements in milk fat levels.
  • Improved conception rates in milking heifers and cows on poor quality pastures.
  •  Fewer herd health problems.
  •  Improved performance of calves reared on sprouts + milk replacer + poor quality forage.

Natural Feed = Natural Digestion

  • Green leaves = live enzymes - All grazing animals rely on bacteria and enzymes in the gut to aid digestion, and with dead feeds they aren’t getting the beneficial enzymes and microbes that fresh fodder can provide. Feeding fresh green fodder will mean your horse will get the maximum from it’s feed, and none of it is wasted.
  • Amino Acid proteins - The sprouting grain converts its existing protein and some of its starch into Amino Acid proteins in the green leaves. This is the best form of protein as it is a building block for larger proteins. They are used for building muscle tissue, and provide your animal with slow release energy, these are the factors that produce improved weight gain and muscle condition.
  • Wet - When taken from the system the feed is wet, and the biscuit itself contains up to 80% moisture. Grazers aren’t designed to drink all of their required moisture, the fodder provides natural moisture intake, which is well assimilated. Amongst other things this provides excellent hydration, which helps to flush toxins from the system improving recovery rates and improves blood flow.
  • Sprouts can have an alkalising effect on the body, and help to neutralise acidic waste, helping to develop a stronger immune system and quicker healing. Grazers assimilate and use nutrition and oxygen more effectively when their rumen and cells have an alkaline balance.
  • Chlorophyll is excellent for blood cleansing and renewal, as well as helping to detoxify the body, and have a regenerative effect on the lungs, glands, and vascular and lymphatic systems. Fresh fodder biscuits provide a simulated grazing process for your animals, which is much more suited to their digestive system than several bulk feeds of concentrated nutrition per day.
