Forageplus hay mineral analysis for horses gives a full mineral profile of horse hay, all macro and micro minerals are included. Match horse minerals to horse hay and balance horse feed. Mineral reports provided by other companies can exclude selenium, iodine or chloride. The report provided is created by a UKAS accredited lab using wet chemistry methods.
Please note that this is purely a report of the horse hay mineral levels in your hay sample showing high and low levels of each mineral. It does not include an interpretation or a feed plan. It does not included ESC or starch levels, for this you need a nutritional analysis. If you require interpretation of the report and a feed plan to be formulated for your horse then please order this separately, however speak to us as we can offer advise as to whether your forage will match one of our balancers so that many customers do not need the expense of a bespoke feed plan. Our analysis includes all the minerals known to be essential in the equine diet, plus levels of antagonist minerals aluminium, lead and molybdenum.
