Our Chaff

We DO NOT add any oils to any of our chaff

Cocksfoot

Cocksfoot grass has been around for a long time and has often been found in meadow mixes and in particular equine seed mixes. Cocksfoot is a great grass for horses and has many of the same benefits that Timothy grass has. It has no endophytes, good protein levels, is low in Non-Structural Carbohydrates (NSC), as well as providing a good fibre source.

Timothy

We use only 1st cut Southland grown Timothy hay. Timothy has a good protein content, low Non-Structural Carbohydrates (NSC), no endophytes and is a good fibre source. It also has a near perfect ratio between Calcium to Phosphorus.

Lucerne

High in protein, high in Non-Structural Carbohydrates (NSC), and a popular choice for horse owners. We start with high quality lucerne hay with good leaf stock. We buy our Lucerne from across Canterbury. We don’t use 1 st cut lucerne but our chaff can be 2 nd , 3 rd and 4 th cut lucerne across the year

Meadow

A mix of equine grasses. It may include Rye and Clovers although we do try to avoid these where we can. This chaff can be high in protein and Non-Structural Carbohydrates (NSC), but will generally be lower than Lucerne. We source our meadow hay from around the Canterbury region from multiple farmers so there will be variations in the chaff across the year.

Oaten

We only use Oat hay to give the best nutritional value. The oat stalk is still green and the oats are still attached. At times we use a white oat which will make them harder to see. Our cut tends to be longer, a rough cut, giving your horse more to chew on.

* Analysis is a snapshot in time. Our Lucerne and Meadow hay come from different farms and different cuts so
actual nutrition values may differ. Our Timothy and Cocksfoot hay is a single cut so there will be less variation
