Good feed is tremendously important for the health of your horses. A balanced ration contains sufficient energy, protein, structure, minerals and trace elements. The basis for this is the roughage.
You know what your horse is eating with the Eurofins Agro roughage analysis! The composition of hay or grass silage (bales) varies from batch to batch, so it is important to have the roughage analysed. The feed value analysis for horses tells you exactly how many nutrients your horse is consuming with the hay or grass silage.
Conveniently arranged results
After the analysis, you will receive an easy to understand report detailing the composition of the roughage. This will enable you to calculate (or have calculated) the quantity of additional concentrates or supplements required.
Good grassland for roughage
Good grassland is needed for excellent roughage. The soil provides the materials important for the yield and quality of the grass, and therefore the hay your horse eats. Fertilising the soil keeps it in good condition, ensuring that it contains the nutrients required to produce a good ration.
Fertilisation analysis of the horse pasture tells you exactly what fertilisers your pasture needs.
Water source for horses
We can also analyse the water source to identify the presence of a number of pathogens. As a horse owner, you want the optimum quality of drinking water. This seems obvious, but it is not. The quality is insufficient at a great number of stables, and in many cases this also has negative consequences for the health of the livestock. You can have analysis carried out on water pumped to the surface, surface water, water from pasture pumps or water from the stable tap.
