Mitavite Extru,Grains provide effective, safe feed-room options. Mitavite Extru Barley is an excellent source of energy and fibre, making it a popular ingredient in horse rations.
- When fed raw barley is poorly digested in a horse's small intestine. Rolling or steam-flaking improves digestibility a little, roasting significantly.
- Steam extrusion has the greatest effect, increasing digestibility to over 90% in the small intestine.
- If feeding by dipper, replace 1 dipper of raw, rolled or cracked grains with one 1 dipper of Mitavite Extru grains.
- If feeding by weight, when changing from raw to Mitavite Extru grains reduce the weight fed by 30%.
