The nutrient content of forage is determined by many different factors.

  1. Type of forage: Alfalfa vs. Grass forages (detailed nutritional analysis of different forage types)
  2. Growing conditions: Soil fertility, water, drying conditions.
    Standlee Premium Western Forage® is grown in Southern Idaho. Geography, climate and nutrient-rich soils work together in Idaho to produce the nation’s best growing and drying conditions for forages.
  3. Cutting: The nutrient content varies between the different cuttings. Timothy Grass forage has the most consistent nutrient content.
    Standlee Premium Western Forage® guarantees maximum and minimum nutritional values for all forages.
  4. Stage of Maturity: The taller the plan the lower the nutrient value and more non-digestible fiber.
    At Standlee we allow Standlee Premium Western Forage® to grow to the proper stage of maturity before cutting the plants to be able to provide the highest nutrient value to your horse(s).
