Kimberly, Idaho – Standlee Premium Products™ introduces Standlee Premium Western Forage® Teff Grass Pellets for horses, a soft high fiber grass forage with moderate protein content and low sugar/starch content. This forage is a nutritional solution for horses challenged with sugar/starch sensitivities such as those diagnosed with Equine Metabolic Syndrome (EMS), Insulin Resistance (IR), Cushings Disease, Polysaccharide Storage Myopathy (PSSM) and Laminitis.
“Finally, low sugar/starch grass forage is now available for horses with sugar-related diseases; this is a game changer for horse owners.”- Dr. Stephen Duren
Teff Grass Forage Pellets offer a convenient and consistent nutrition solution that gives horse owners peace of mind that what they’re feeding is safe and nutritionally low in sugar/starch for their horses. Replacing baled grass hay with Teff Grass Forage Pellets eliminates the need to soak hay in water to reduce sugar content. It also eliminates the time, hassle and expense of nutritionally testing multiple batches of hay to find a source suitable for your sugar sensitive horse. Teff Grass Forage Pellets are also a good option for overweight horses. These horses often struggle to lose weight with other higher calorie forages.
“Teff Grass gives horse owners with overweight horses a sound, high fiber option for feeding that is both low in calories and low in sugar/starch. This will allow weight reduction with a minimum of behavior issues.”- Dr. Tania Cubitt
Teff Grass Forage Pellets also offer another option for feeding grass forage to horses that have allergies to other grass and legumes such as timothy grass, orchard grass, alfalfa and clover.
