Feeding sprouts can replace 100% – 60% of your current hard feed diet. Horses that need a high starch feed will require a supply of starch from conventional feed such as steamed flake barley. The high moisture content of sprouts benefits digestion and recovery after work. For digestive health it is recommend that a horse consumes a min. of 1.5% of its body weight as dry matter. This needs to be considered when calculating the required roughage to balance your horse’s diet when feeding spouts.
