Unlike other forage products on the market today, Chaffhaye is literally fresh-cut, premium pasture packaged in an air-tight bag. In the bag, all-natural fermentation occurs that unlocks nutrition from the plant fiber. The fermentation “pre-digests” the forage, similar to what happens in the hindgut of a horse or the rumen of ruminant. The result is a much more digestible forage that is rich in naturally occurring yeast and other probiotics. As proof of digestibility, animals converted to Chaffhaye will generate significantly less manure and have a reduced “hay belly” appearance compared to animals fed dry hay. The fermentation also reduces sugars and starches to a level that make Chaffhaye ideal for horses with any type of metabolic issue. Being soft and highly palatable, Chaffhaye is a great forage source for older horses with dental issues and less effective digestive systems.

Being a fresh, moist product, Chaffhaye completely eliminates dust and airborne mold spores from your feed source. Chaffhaye comes packaged in 50 lbs. bags that are completely weather resistant. This means Chaffhaye can be stored or transported without having to be tarped or otherwise covered. So replace your dry hay or pellets with a much more nutritious and convenient forage source – Chaffhaye!

FORCO Feed Supplement is a very specific product — it has one purpose, and one purpose only.  FORCO Feed Supplement is a source of nutrients that feed and nurture the entire scope of bacterial and microbial populations in the full spectrum of the digestive system.  By specifically feeding these microbial populations, FORCO will assist in establishing and maintaining normal levels of beneficial digestive bacteria.

The digestive system is totally dependent on the function and populations of these beneficial digestive bacteria. Without adequate and normal levels of beneficial digestive bacteria, the digestive system cannot properly digest, assimilate, or absorb proper levels and balances of nutrients contained in the daily rations being fed the horse. This can result in a broad spectrum of health problems and deficiencies in the horse.

King Feed
(800) 253-7346

King has been home to California’s finest animal feeds for more than 70 years. The family-owned and operated company has been providing quality feed and exceptional customer service to livestock producers, breeders, show and pet owners throughout California and the surrounding states. Outside of California, King Feed is marketed as Integrifeed – the same great feed, just different packaging!

King Feed is highly sought after and recommended by professionals because of its quality and performance. The commitment to quality begins with “fixed-formulas.” In the highly competitive feed industry, many companies “least-cost formulate” their feeds – ingredients change to manage costs, resulting in taste, appearance and performance variances that your animal can recognize. King’s “fixed-formula” feeds are based on the latest nutrition information available, and the formula doesn’t change unless there is new scientific evidence to do so. The result is a highly consistent feed, guaranteeing you the same product and performance every time you open a bag.

The connection between nutrition and health is now widely known. When you open a bag of King Feed, in addition to top quality nutrition, you’ll discover a bounty of natural ingredients like herb and plant extracts, anti-oxidants and pre-and probiotics that support the health and longevity of your animal –all for about the same price as you pay for ordinary feeds! King takes animal nutrition seriously, and your animal’s health is its top priority. Take time to explore King products and ask them questions – they’ll demonstrate that they want the best for you and your animal.
