Naturally Sun-Cured Premium Western Organic Alfalfa Forage
Forage is the most important component of a horse’s diet and should be fed at a rate of 1.5-2.5% of a horse’s body weight.
Calculate how much to feed your horse by simply entering your horses weight below. Calculate your horse's weight.
Follow these simple steps to determine your horse’s weight
- Measure your horse’s heart girth. Measure around the midsection, immediately behind the elbow and withers.
- Measure your horse’s body length. Measure from the point of the shoulder to the point of the buttock (tuber ischii).
- Weight Estimate Calculation:
Adult Horse: (Heart Girth x Hearth Girth x Body Length) / 330 = Bodyweight
Yearling: (Heart Girth x Hearth Girth x Body Length) / 301 = Bodyweight
Weanling: (Heart Girth x Hearth Girth x Body Length) / 208 = Bodyweight
- Goats will consume 2.5% – 3.5% of their body in dry forage per day. This equates to 3.75 – 5.25 lbs. of dry forage per day for
a 150 lb. mature goat. Feed Standlee Premium Western Forage® Organic Alfalfa Pellets according to the following guide:
- Breeding Does: 2.5% – 3% of body weight
- Lactating Does: 3% – 3.5% of body weight
- Kid Starter*: 15% – 25% of total diet
- Finisher Diet: 10% – 20% of total diet
- *Goat Kids will generally begin to consume starter at approximately 21 days of age.
- Weigh the amount of forage provided to each horse to ensure you are feeding the proper amount.
- Feeding some long-stem forage (hay) may help eliminate boredom and prevent stall vices.
- Horses that have dental problems or for horses that aggressively consume their feed, Standlee Premium Western Forage® cubes and pellets are recommended to be fed wet, soaked in water for 30 minutes or until properly softened.
- Gradually replace existing hay with Standlee Premium Western Forage® over a 7-10 day period. Replace existing hay on a 1 to 1 basis with Standlee Premium Western Forage®.
