Dengie Alfalfa Pellets are a quick and convenient way of feeding alfalfa in a concentrated form. They are made from 100% alfalfa (and nothing else) which is harvested at its most nutritious stage of growth and then dried at high temperature. Suitable for horses, ponies, sheep, goats, camelids and cattle, this natural, highly nutritious pelleted feed provides 'slow release' energy in the form of highly digestible fibre along with good quality protein and a host of natural vitamins and minerals. Alfalfa is naturally low in sugar (water soluble carbohydrates), and Dengie Alfalfa Pellets, unlike many other cubes or mixes, are also unmolassed. In fact, they contain nothing but alfalfa which makes them ideal for animals that require a low sugar and low starch diet. They are also rich in calcium and other naturally occurring vitamins and minerals. Dengie Alfalfa Pellets can also be fed soaked, making them ideal for those older animals who struggle to chew. They are ideal for feeding outdoors and particularly beneficial for breeding stock as they supply highly bio-available calcium and good quality protein. They allow poor quality forage to be upgraded, whilst providing a good quality and nutritious feed for animals at a competitive price.

Key Features:
100% alfalfa, no added sugar (5%) and naturally low in starch (3%).
Rich in calcium and other naturally occurring vitamins and minerals.
Alfalfa Pellets are an excellent way of providing quality fibre in a concentrated form.
100% natural – free from molasses, preservatives, straw and binders.
Alfalfa Pellets can be fed dry in a bucket or soaked into a mash, which is ideal for older animals who struggle to chew.
Perfect to use in a snack ball to help reduce boredom and provide a more natural ‘trickle’ feeding rate.

Feeding Guide:
Alfalfa Pellets can be fed dry in snack balls or as healthy treats, but as they are high in fibre they should ideally be fed soaked or with chopped fibre to individuals that bolt their feed.

How to soak Alfalfa Pellets:
For those that struggle to chew, Alfalfa Pellets can be fed soaked prior to feeding.

To soak Alfalfa Pellets you can use hot or cold water. Soaking time can vary according to the density of the pellets, but as a guide we would expect a 2 hour cold soak or 15 minute hot soak time. Equally the pellets can be left through the day or night to soak. We would suggest a 1 part product to 3 parts water soaking ratio to produce a mash.
