What Is Forage Analysis?
Forage analysis is a way of determining what your horses forage is contributing to their overall diet. It is a test that is performed on a sample of forage i.e., hay, haylage or grass and the results can help to determine the dietary contributions.
If you decide to have your forage analysed, you will receive a report from our nutritional team with the analysis results along with an explanation of what the results mean. We are also able to use the forage analysis results to prepare a diet plan for your horse taking into account the results from the analysis so that your horse's diet can be individually tailored to their specific needs.

For horse owners that face challenges such as managing horses with metabolic, muscular, or digestive issues or for breeders and performance horses, forage analysis offers a more in-depth management of their nutrition.
With forage forming the biggest portion of the horse’s diet, forage analysis can be beneficial when creating a diet for these types of horses and can help to determine if the forage source is suitable for the horse.
