Alfa-A Oil provides 12.5MJ/kg of slow-release energy, which is comparable to a conditioning or competition mix, but provides 10 times less starch, making it ideal for horses with ERS which research indicates benefit from a low sugar and starch diet.

Alfa-A Oil is made from pure alfalfa grown in fields close to Dengie's production sites in Essex and Lincolnshire, which has been chopped and dried at a very high temperature to lock in the natural goodness. Alfalfa is rich in highly digestible fibre, packed with essential vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. High in protein it is ideal for helping to develop muscle tone and for muscle function. Alfalfa is a natural buffer to gut acidity. Independent research carried out at Texas A&M University, USA showed that alfalfa was a natural buffer to acidity in the digestive system. Feeding alfalfa was more effective at reducing the incidence of gastric ulcers than turnout on pasture 24/7. Click here to read more about the study. Alfa-A Oil has a high oil content, perfect for show ring condition, healthy skin and coat shine. No added sugar, low in starch. The amount and kind of work your horse or pony is doing is an important factor when calculating the quantity and type of feed to give. Alfa-A Oil provides sufficient energy to meet the requirements of working horses, even those in hard work.
