Apollo Machine - Horse Care Roller Mills
With the growth of horse care facilities the Econo Roller Mill is playing a bigger part in horse health. If you are a horse trainer, you’re boarding horses, or you’re just a horse lover that has a horse or three on your own acreage, you’re probably concerned about the horses’ nutritional needs. An Econo Roller Mill can contribute to horse health by making grain more palatable and giving your horse access to the maximum nutrition that feed grain can deliver.
The Roller Mill can make the grain more palatable to horses in the same way as freshly popped popcorn is more palatable than the Styrofoam-like product that popcorn turns into after a few days in a bag. Same thing with grain…freshly rolled grain can play a bigger role in horse care than the rolled and bagged product that you bring back from the Feed Store. The aroma is better and the taste is sharper. Try feeding horses fresh rolled and rolled and bagged feed side-by-side some time and see for your-self.
Crushing your own grain and then feeding it will result in more nutritional value getting to the horse. A bag of rolled grain fed out over a period of time will have considerably less food value after a few days. So it’s important to deliver the product fresh every day. The Econo Roller Mill can deliver as little as a five gallon pail of feed at a time, so freshness is not an issue, and the mill pays for itself in a short period of time, just because whole grain is so much cheaper to buy than processed feed.
