Freemantle Stockfeeds wheaten chaff is steam cut and dust reduced. It is an excellent source of roughage for horses, cattle sheep and goats. Wheaten chaff is ideally suited for mixing and feeding with grain and protein meal based concentrates. Mixing chaff with concentrates can help to slow the rate of feed intake and reduce the risk of rumen acidosis in ruminants and hindgut acidosis in horses.
With horses, cattle, sheep and goats ensure that new feed materials are introduced into the diet gradually building up the to the full daily allowance over one to two weeks. With chaff and concentrate mixtures splitting the daily allowance into two small meals per day rather than feeding the entire daily allowance in one single meal is recommended. Ensure animals have access to fresh, clean water at all times.
