Product Description

Harvested from perennial meadows, growing in the foothills of the Bavarian Pre-Alps, in southern Germany, Natural Meadow Cobs contain an appetising blend of up to 60 different species of naturally-occurring meadow grasses, wildflowers and herbs, and are high in fibre, yet low in sugars, starch and calories as the plants have been left to mature before cutting.  They are then coarsely chopped and high-temperature dried - in a facility powered by renewable biomass-fuelled electricity - and pressed into chunky cobs.

Nothing added, nothing taken away!
Natural Meadow Cobs contain no added vitamins and minerals so can be fed alongside an existing balanced diet, as an appetising additional fibre source, without causing any nutritional imbalances.  They’re also molasses-, grain- and alfalfa-free with only low levels of naturally occurring sugars.

High fibre forage alternative
The grasses are harvested at a point when fibre content is at its highest and comprises higher levels of structural fibre than many other soaked fibre sources, making them ideal as a replacement for long forages, like hay, haylage or grass.

The next best thing to fresh grass!
The aroma and texture of fresh grasses is brought out by soaking, making Natural Meadow Cobs perfect for tempting fussy or poor forage eaters, including working or performance horses, while also being ideal for those who struggle with grazing and chewing forages.

Feeding Instructions

  • Must be soaked before feeding
  • Add 2 parts water to 1 part Natural Meadow Cobs   eg. 2 scoops of water to 1 scoop cobs.  (More water can be added if you want to help rehydrate your horse)
  • Soak time:  allow 30 minutes in warm water and 1 hour in cold water.
  • Ensure the cobs are fully softened before feeding. The aroma and texture of fresh grasses is brought out by soaking, which also helps improve the horse’s hydration levels.
  • Feed as part of a fully balanced diet.  Natural Meadow Cobs contain no added vitamins and minerals so must be fed alongside the recommended amount of a mix, cube or balancer, to ensure a fully balanced diet.
  • When fed as a total forage replacement ie. when no other forage or grazing is given, feed at a rate of 1.5 – 2kg per 100kg of bodyweight (dry) per day.
  • When fed in addition to forage and/or hard feed, 0.5 – 1kg per 100kg bodyweight (dry) may be fed per day.
  • Divide total daily amount into as many smaller feeds, throughout the day, as possible.
  • A small number of Natural Meadow Cobs can be fed dry, if given as treat, by hand, for example, otherwise we strongly recommend they are soaked before feeding.
