Description

The ultimate pure alfalfa fibre feed for fuelling hard work, improving stamina and promoting condition in horses and ponies. 

The addition of rape seed oil makes this feed excellent for providing slow-release energy without the fizz. As Alfa-A Oil is free from molasses and cereal grains it is ideal for over-excitable individuals or those prone to muscle problems.

Key Features

  • Alfa-A Oil provides 12.5MJ/kg of slow-release energy, which is comparable to a conditioning or competition mix, but provides 10 times less starch, making it ideal for horses with ERS which research indicates benefit from a low sugar and starch diet. Click here to read about how to feed horses with ERS.
  • Alfa-A Oil is made from pure alfalfa grown in fields close to Dengie’s production sites in Essex and Lincolnshire, which has been chopped and dried at a very high temperature to lock in the natural goodness
  • Alfalfa is rich in highly digestible fibre, packed with essential vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. High in protein it is ideal for helping to develop muscle tone and for muscle function
  • Alfalfa is a natural buffer to gut acidity. Independent research carried out at Texas A&M University, USA showed that alfalfa was a natural buffer to acidity in the digestive system. Feeding alfalfa was more effective at reducing the incidence of gastric ulcers than turnout on pasture 24/7. Click here to read more about the study
  • Alfa-A Oil has a high oil content, perfect for show ring condition, healthy skin and coat shine
  • No added sugar, low in starch

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

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

Dengie Message

Feed Safety & Quality

Ensuring quality, safety and sustainability
Everyone at Dengie is proud of our connection with the land and we are always mindful that we need to grow our crops as sympathetically as possible both for the benefit of our customers and to ensure the future sustainability of what we do. Our farmers are family farmers and they want to ensure there is a viable future for generations to come.

A Commitment to Quality

There are a number of organisations that Dengie are accredited with as part of our commitment to quality:

Feed Assurance Schemes

UFAS and FEMAS are voluntary schemes developed in response to demand for improved feed and food safety. Approval under the schemes provides independent verification that a company is meeting its legal obligations under general feed law.

Dengie are approved under both UFAS and FEMAS as we grow and produce our own raw material.

The schemes are based on HACCP principles, an internationally recognized system of hazard analysis pioneered by space agency NASA. Over recent years HACCP has become a central requirement of Food and Feed safety legislation.

BETA NOPS

In 2009 the British Equestrian Trade Association introduced a code of practice relating to naturally occurring prohibited substances (NOPS). The aim of the code of practice is to identify those manufacturers who demonstrate due diligence in reducing the risk of contamination with NOPS. Due to the nature of some NOPS it is no longer possible to offer a guarantee that a product is free from them. Those companies that do are unlikely to be fully aware of the potential risks of contamination. Dengie are approved under the NOPS scheme. If you require more information about NOPS then please contact us on 01621841188 or send us an e-mail.

Use of GM Materials

No GM raw materials are used in our feeds and so they are suitable for feeding to horses kept on organic holdings or for those supplying muck to organic holdings.
