Product Details:

Premium Alfalfa/Grass Compressed Bales are formed by allowing Standlee Premium Western Forage™ to grow to the proper stage of maturity, cutting the plants, allowing them to sun-cure (dry) to an acceptable moisture level and baling the forage at the optimal time. Standlee Premium Western Forage™ creates compressed bales of forage from a large 4’x4’x8’ bale that is put through a press, sliced horizontally, pushed onto a scale, weighed, compressed and then banded. This combination of Alfalfa and mixed Grasses is moderate in protein and sugar and is very palatable.

Recommended For: Growing (moderate to rapid growth) and underweight horses, horses sensitive to carbohydrates, horses with gastric ulcers, performance horses, late pregnancy and lactating mares, breeding stallions and senior horses.

Feeding Instructions:

On average most horses comfortably consume 2% of their body weight in dry forage per day.

Standlee recommends that you weigh the amount of forage provided to each horse to ensure you are feeding the proper amount.  This is especially important with baled and compressed forage since similar volumes of forage (a flake for example) vary in weight.  Standlee also recommends cutting the bands on compressed bales and allowing the bale to expand overnight to avoid overfeeding.  Feed Standlee Premium Western Baled or Standlee Premium Western Compressed Forage at a minimum rate of 1.5% of body weight. Gradually increase or decrease the amount of forage to maintain desired body condition.  

Never feed moldy or insect infested forage to horses. 

Always provide free-access to fresh, clean water.
