Standlee Premium Western Forage® compressed bales are 50 lb forage bales compressed for easy handling and storage.
Certified Alfalfa Compressed Bales are formed by allowing Standlee Premium Western Forage® to grow to the proper stage of maturity, cutting the plants, allowing them to sun-cure (dry) to an acceptable moisture level and baling the forage at the optimal time. Standlee Premium Western Forage® creates compressed bales of forage from a large 4x4x8 bale that is put through a press, sliced horizontally, pushed onto a scale, weighed, compressed and then banded. Alfalfa forage is low in sugar, moderately high in protein, high in calories and digestible fiber. This product is Certified Noxious Weed Free.
Crude Protein - Min 16%
Crude Fat - Min 1.5%
Crude Fiber - Max 30%
Moisture - Max 12%
Naturally Sun-Cured Premium Western Alfalfa Forage
On average most horses comfortably consume 2% of their body weight in dry forage per day. This equates to 20 lbs of dry forage per day for a 1000 lb horse.
Standlee recommends that you weigh the amount of forage provided to each horse to ensure you are feeding the proper amount. This is especially important with baled and compressed forage since similar volumes of forage (a flake for example) vary in weight. Standlee also recommends cutting the bands on compressed bales and allowing the bale to expand overnight to avoid overfeeding. Feed Standlee Premium Western Baled or Standlee Premium Western Compressed Forage at a minimum rate of 1.5% of body weight. Gradually increase or decrease the amount of forage to maintain desired body condition.
Never feed moldy or insect infested forage to horses.
Always provide free-access to fresh, clean water.
