FodderPro Feed Systems allow anyone to produce their own top-quality horse feed for just pennies a pound. Hydroponically grown fodder is sprouted grass or legumes that mimic fresh pasture, making it an ideal supplemental feed for natural grazers, like horses. Fodder is also highly digestible and packed with essential nutrients which will help keep horses, especially those with special dietary requirements, happy and healthy. Whether fodder is grown for supplemental feed or just a snack for horses, it will allow farm and ranch owners to gain control of their feed regimen and provide fresh, healthy feed year round.

Fodder Benefits

Feeding fodder to horses will have a dramatic effect on their health and performance, and the benefits are noticeable immediately. They are grazers by nature and providing fresh vegetation year round with a FodderPro Feed System helps simulate their natural feeding process.

Supplying fodder as a supplemental feed each day will result in many benefits, including:

  • Less recovery time required after hard work
  • Reduced instance of colic, ulcers and inflammation
  • Earlier and more consistent heat cycles
  • Improved hoof health
  • Improved behavior and temperament
  • Higher energy levels
  • Improved coat gloss and appearance

Types of Feed

Legumes, such as alfalfa, have been fed to horses for centuries as dried hay. Legumes are high in protein, energy, calcium and other minerals. Fresh fodder sprouts are more digestible than hay and the nutrients are more readily available.

Alfalfa Clover

Another popular source of hay, grasses such as brome, fescue and timothy are a good choice for fodder. They are high in essential nutrients. Fresh, grass fodder sprouts are also high in fat and low in fiber, making them an excellent source of energy.

Brome Fescue Timothy

Naturally balanced in protein, energy and fiber, these sprouts are an excellent feed for horses. These sprouts are high in fiber, making them ideal as a supplement to hay. Grains are a good source of energy and contain 95% of the energy of corn. Grain fodder also has a low acid content compared to dried grains and concentrates, reducing the risk of ulcers and stomach upset.

"The health benefits really shocked me. I didn't expect to see such drastic improvements. The horses also really like the fodder. I haven't had a horse yet that wouldn't eat it. My horses will turn away from second cutting alfalfa hay to go eat the fodder."
