In order to feed horses in the stable in as natural a manner as possible, Hartog has developed a unique product called Compact Grass.
To produce Hartog Compact Grass, we use a meticulously selected mix of fibre-rich grasses especially for horses. Compact Grass is tightly compressed into a small bale for convenient storage and handling. It does not have to be broken up before being fed to horses. By serving a bale of Compact Grass in the Hartog feed box, a horse’s eating rate in the stall is slowed to the point that it more nearly matches natural grazing behaviour in the field.
- 100% dried grass with no additives
- Tasty and healthy
- Prevents boredom in the stable
- Consistent quality
- Free of dust and mould
- Protected with a plastic covering
Hartog Feed box
A special Feed Box is available for dispensing Hartog Compact Grass. The Hartog Feed box consists of an anti-spill edge that prevents loss of food. Approximately half a bale of Hartog Compact Grass can fit into such a container.
For producing Hartog Compact Grass we use a special grass mix produced by growers that we monitor. The product is therefore free of weeds and ragwort.
To replace or combine with your current roughage; Hartog Compact Grass also combines excellently with Hartog Lucerne-mix.
To meet the roughage requirements of your horse, you need to feed 1.5 kg of roughage daily per 100 kg of the horse’s weight. Due to the high nutritional value of this product compared to hay or grass silage, you can reduce the concentrates that you give your horse.
