Wild horses graze for approximately 16 hours a day, making around 40,000 chewing motions. Stabled, domesticated horses chew much less. Pavo DailyPlus is a balanced forage-based high fibre chaff mix with an energy value equal to good hay. It can be fed alone or mixed with concentrates to stimulate chewing, increase saliva production and slow down consumption of concentrates thus slowing the rate of passage through the digestive system. Plenty of chewing combats boredom and an increased saliva production reduces the risk of gastric ulcers. Pavo DailyPlus is the formula for a contented horse.
DailyPlus is a blend of dried alfalfa combined with oat and barely straw, dressed lightly with vegetable oil and molasses. It is very high in fibre, low in energy, starch and sugar making it ideal for good-doers and those on a calorie controlled diet. DailyPlus is a perfect accompaniment to Pavo Vital and Pavo Summerfit that provide essential vitamins and minerals to horses and ponies not receiving concentrate feeds.
