The nutrient analysis from the June 2020 cutting is back. Crude Protein and TDN requirements are different between horses and cattle and also differ according to the age, size, activity, and lactation situation of the animal. Crude Protein is an easy marker to check:

Horses -

  • Mature: 7.2-10%
  • Growing: 12-18%
  • Broodmare: 12-16%
