Now you can order both the Nutritional NIR Analysis and our Full Mineral Analysis, together as one bundle!
What will this analysis bundle tell me?
Order and receive both reports in one package. The nutritional report will provide you with a breakdown of the sugars and starch content. We can then advise you if your forage would be suitable for a laminitis prone horse and if soaking is required.
This will also allow Forageplus to decide whether your horse needs additional protein and hard feed or whether just supplementing with minerals will be sufficient to cover all your horses nutritional needs.
The full mineral part of this bundle offers a mineral profile of horse forage, all macro and micro minerals are included. You can then match horse forage minerals to horse grass and balance your horse feed. Mineral reports provided by other companies will often exclude selenium, iodine or chloride. The report provided by Forageplus is created by a UKAS accredited lab using wet chemistry methods.
The mineral part of analysis for horses includes all the minerals known to be essential in the equine diet, plus levels of antagonist minerals aluminium, lead and molybdenum.
The following elements are included in this mineral analysis for horses:
