The nutrient content of forage is determined by many different factors.
- Type of forage: Alfalfa vs. Grass forages (detailed nutritional analysis of different forage types)
- 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.
- 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.
- 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).
