Feeding guide

The recommended feed should be based on the nutritional value of the forage feed that is given in addition to KRAFFT Lucerne Pellets. As a guideline, feed approx. 0.5–4 kg per horse per day. Ensure that the horse receives sufficient other coarse feed (a total of 1-1.5 kg dry coarse feed per 100 kg of horse). KRAFFT Lucerne Pellets should be moistened to minimise the risk of oesophageal impaction.

1 litre KRAFFT LUCERNE Pellets = approx. 0.6 kg.
