Feeding Instructions:
On average most horses comfortably consume 2% of their body weight in dry forage per day. This equates to 20 lb. of dry forage per day for a 1000 lb. horse. Standlee recommends that you weigh the amount of forage provided to each horse to ensure you are feeding the proper amount. Standlee also recommends that pelleted and cubed forage not be the sole source of forage since feeding some long-stem forage (hay) may help eliminate boredom and prevent stall vices. Feed Standlee Premium Western Forage at a minimum rate of 1.5% of body weight per day. 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. Standlee Premium Western Forage is recommended to be fed wet, soaked in water for 30 minutes or until properly softened, for horses that have dental problems or for horses that aggressively consume their feed. Never feed moldy or insect infested forage to horses. Always provide free-access to fresh, clean water. If you have questions, please contact the nutritionists at Standlee Premium Western Forage, or consult with your veterinarian.

I have read conflicting information about Alfalfa for donkeys. Is this product good for Donkeys? if not what do you recommend

Asked by: becca8
Thank you for you question. The key to successful donkey nutrition is to find high-fiber forages of low nutritional value. An ideal choice is clean straw, which in many ways is the most similar choice to feeds donkeys would find in their native environments. Another ideal choice is a grass forage, such as the Timothy Grass compressed bales and/or pellets. This a low protein forage, that donkeys do very well on as well. You can always combine the two products to find the ideal feed for your donkey. Thank you

What percentage of Alfalfa is there in the alfalfa pellets? I infer 100% but would like confirmation.

Asked by: Mariana
Standlee Alfalfa Pellets are 100% alfalfa, there are no additives included in the pelleted products.

After soaking 30 minutes the pellets swelled and softened a bit, but had a hard core and did not disintegrate like the alfalfa cubes do. Is that as much softening as I can expect? I am feeding them to an elderly horse who can eat grass but not hay.

Asked by: ValF
Thank you for your inquiry. In most instances, the pellets will fully break apart. However, there are times when the forage used is more dense and this will keep the pellets together in pellet form longer. If the forage is denser, it will hold the compression better, therefore it will not expand as expected. Thank you

should you always soak these pellets before feeding

Asked by: sam56
Thank you for your question. Standlee Premium Western Forage does recommend that the pellets be soaked for several reasons, but one important reason is that most people are not aware that their horse is prone to choke until it chokes.

How much does a cup of Standlee Premium Western Alfalfa pellets weight?

Asked by: Doris3
Thank you for your inquiry. We recommend that animals be fed by weight and not by volume, you will have different weights as the pellets, flakes/ &/or cubes all vary in size. On average, about 3 dry measuring cups equals 1 pound. Thank you

Are these alfalfa pellets GMO free

Asked by: James 45
Thank you for your question. As of December 1, 2013, Standlee will have a limited amount of GMO Alfalfa and Alfalfa blended products in retail outlets. GMO Alfalfa could be found in cubes, pellets, chopped or bales. Standlee Premium Western Forage™ recognizes and respects that consumers appreciate a variety of product choices. Therefore, Standlee provides non-GMO straight Timothy Grass and Orchard Grass options across formats. (IE: Orchard Grass Pellets, Timothy Grass Pellets & Bales). The products we offer that are not GMO are, timothy pellets and bales, orchard pellets, and alfalfa/orchard grass bales.

What is the percent of NSC in the alfalfa pellets?

Asked by: Meelie
Thank you for your question. We do not test each batch as it is made, we test our fields, we are required by law to guarantee protein, fat, fiber and moisture, we are not required to guarantee non-structured carbs (WSC & Starch). We can provide you with a 5-year average of what the mineral levels are of the Standlee Products. All values are based on “As Fed Basis”. The estimated NSC levels of the Standlee Alfalfa Pellets is 9%. Thank you
