Our knowledge of how horses metabolise their feed has allowed us to develop our KRAFFT range, making it Sweden’s biggest horse feed brand. When new information comes to light, we incorporate it in our products. Here are the building blocks of our philosophy on feeding horses:
You have to know exactly what is in the feed you give your horse. The nutritional content of our concentrated feed must be the same with every new batch. You also have to be sure of our hygiene standards. This is why KRAFFT guarantees both hygiene and nutritional content.
Fat and fibre
Fat is an easily metabolised source of energy for horses, leaving lower residues in the muscles. Fibre is required to allow the microorganisms in the large intestine to do their important job of extracting energy from the feed. This is why our ready feeds have a relatively high content of both fat and fibre.
The right kind of protein
Protein forms the basis of all body tissue, but the wrong kind of protein can harm horses. This is why the proteins in KRAFFT feeds are based on amino acids, and their composition is especially suitable for horses.
The ingredients in unpelleted feeds can easily end up clumping together. As a result, some horses might receive a harmful concentration of one substance, while others go short of the same thing. This is why KRAFFT ready feeds are pelleted. Each and every pellet contains equal quantities of every ingredient. And no preservatives are needed either!
A structure to suit you
The extensive KRAFFT range offers complete programmes of both pelleted feeds and grain products. So you can choose the structure that best suits your horse, your feeding routines and your feed storage. No matter which structure you choose, the balance of vitamins and minerals is always just right for the needs of Swedish horses.
KRAFFT has built up some major research resources of its own. We keep a close watch on international developments, and we are in constant contact with scientific institutions and individual researchers specialising in the metabolism of nutrients in horses.
The feed advisors at KRAFFT maintain constant contact with horse owners all over Sweden and swap experiences with one another. They have built up a valuable knowledge base over time, and they are happy to share this knowledge with others. If you have any questions or want assistance with maintenance rations of feed, for example, all you have to do is ask them.
