ALFA-A ORIGINAL is the highly digestible fibre feed for working horses and ponies - providing approximately 10MJ/kg of slow-release energy.  On a kg for kg basis, ALFA-A ORIGINAL provides the same energy levels as a pasture or cool mix/cube.

ALFA-A ORIGINAL is made from pure alfalfa which has been chopped and dried at a very high temperature to lock in the natural goodness and ensure the very best quality product for your horse or pony. Alfalfa is an excellent natural source of antioxidants.

How To Get The Most Out Of Feeding With Dengie Alfa-A Original

Alfa-A Original can be fed on its own or it can be combined with cubes or a mix for those horses with a higher energy requirement. If you are feeding Alfa-A Original as the sole feed, use a broad-spectrum vitamin and mineral supplement, such as one of the Dengie Natural Vitality Vits & Mins or alternatively a feed balancer such as Dengie Alfa-A or Hi-Fi Balancer.

Respiratory Care

The alfalfa in Alfa-A Original is dried at a very high temperature to reduce the risk of mould. Efficient extraction processes ensure Alfa-A Original has a low dust content to promote a healthy respiratory
