An easy to chew, highly digestible fibre feed suitable for all horses and ponies, particularly those with poor teeth.
Hi-Fi Senior is ideal as a partial or complete hay replacer for horses that find chewing hay difficult. With an energy level comparable to very good quality hay, Hi-Fi Senior can improve the feed value of the ration, helping elderly animals to gain weight. Feed Hi-Fi Senior in large tub trugs when using as a hay replacer.
The alfalfa and grasses in Hi-Fi Senior are dried at a very high temperature which reduces mould. Efficient extraction processes ensure Hi-Fi Senior has a low dust content making it ideal for promoting respiratory health.
