Grass silage is a common forage source for ruminants worldwide, but it can be used for horses when hay supplies are limited. The protein content is lowest at older stages of growth.
Mad Barn's Feed Bank provides nutritional profiles on +3,000 forages, feeds and supplements used in the equine diet. With our free diet formulation tool, this data can be used by horse owners and nutritionists to design balanced feeding programs for horses in their care.
