Key Features

  • Hi-Fi Senior is a blend of soft grass and nutrient rich alfalfa with a light molasses and oil coating
  • Highly digestible fibre for optimal digestive health
  • Hi-Fi Senior can be used as a hay replacer for performance horses, those with respiratory problems or horses who can no longer chew the longer length of hay or haylage
  • The short chop and soft grass make it easier to chew. Soaked Alfa-Beet can be added for extra calories and weight gain
  • If using as a hay replacer, simply replace the weight of hay with the same weight of Hi-Fi Senior or feed ad-lib
  • With an energy level comparable to very good quality hay, Hi-Fi Senior can improve the feed value of the ration, helping poor do-ers to gain weight

How To Get The Most Out Of Feeding With Dengie Hi-Fi Senior

Hi-Fi Senior is ideal as a partial or complete hay replacer for horses that find chewing hay difficult. With an energy level comparable to very good quality hay, Hi-Fi Senior can improve the feed value of the ration, helping elderly animals to gain weight. Feed Hi-Fi Senior in large tub trugs when using as a hay replacer.

Respiratory Care

The alfalfa and grasses in Hi-Fi Senior are dried at a very high temperature which reduces mould. Efficient extraction processes ensure Hi-Fi Senior has a low dust content making it ideal for promoting respiratory health.
