Introducing Lucie Fibre Cubes

LucieFibre Cubes

When you need a high fibre, low energy, low calorie feed but still want to maintain health and condition with natural nutrients, Lucie®Fibre Cubes are ideal.

These high fibre, low calorie cubes are made from 100% pure lucerne which has been dried slowly and naturally in the sun. Stalk predominates over the more nutritious leaf, so this is an ideal feed for good doers, horses on box rest or in very light work and not needing high levels of nutrition. Crucially, this feed is very low in sugars and of course, we have added nothing to it. Protein levels are sufficient for maintenance of healthy muscles and internal organs so if included as part of a weight reduction programme, will ensure that it is fat your horse sheds, not vital muscle bulk.

Lucie Cobs - Horse Feed of the Month March 2012

Cobs

Lucie®Cobs are our choice for this month! Spring is on the way and the grass is coming through so you may be thinking of a feed that is slightly lower in calories but still a proper forage feed. Look no further!

Lucie®Cobs are made from chopped, sun dried lucerne compressed into brickettes. We recommend that you soak them before you feed them. This has several advantages:
Increased volume, so increased eating time
Hydrated so helps prepare your horse for grazing after a winter on hay
Natural Vitamins D and E and carotene for Vitamin A
Naturally low sugar and no additives so suitable for horses that tie up, EMS, laminitis etc
Suitable for horses with ulcers, prone to colic or on box rest. Read more
