Hi-Fi LITE is a high fibre feed suitable for horses and ponies that are overweight and prone to laminitis. It can be used as a partial or complete hay replacer and will provide less sugar than average hay. Hi-Fi Lite is approved by the Laminitis Trust.
Hi-Fi LITE is made from alfalfa which is high temperature dried - locking in the natural goodness - and then blended with quality straw to provide an high fibre ration. Alfalfa is an excellent natural source of vitamins and minerals.
How To Get The Most Out Of Feeding With Dengie Hi-Fi Lite
Hi-Fi LITE is ideal as the sole bucket feed for horses and ponies that are overweight and prone to laminitis. It can be fed alongside a broad-spectrum supplement,such as one of the Dengie Natural Vitality Vits & Mins or alternatively a feed balancer such as Alfa-A or Hi-Fi Balancer to provide a balanced diet. Where additional condition is needed, or for those horses with a higher energy requirement, Dengie Alfa-Beet or Alfa-A Lite can be added.
Hi-Fi Lite can also be fed as a hay replacer. Naturally lower in sugar than hay, Hi-Fi Lite can be fed on a weight for weight basis as a low sugar alternative to hay or haylage.
Hi-Fi Lite is a short 'chop' that takes as long to chew as the equivalent weight of hay or haylage, helping to keep horses occupied and satisfied. For horses on restricted grazing, Hi-Fi Lite is ideal as it delivers sufficient fibre to maintain gut function.
The alfalfa in Hi-Fi Lite is dried at a very high temperature which reduces mould. Extraction processes help to reduce the dust content to promote respiratory health.
