Northern Crop Driers Ltd. have been producing grass pellets for use in horse rations and general animal feeds for 30 years. The standard product is a 6mm diameter grass nut with 16% protein, but the company also offer a 5mm diameter grass nut for use with smaller animals.
A unique blend of grasses is used by Northern Crop Driers to produce their grass nuts. This blend is made up of the following grass types:
Solid Hybrid Ryegrass, Donard Perennnial Ryegrass, Moy Perennial Ryegrass, Dovey Tall Fescue, Promesse Timothy
In order to prevent too rapid a consumption, we recommend that grass pellets should be fed with at least an equal volume of a bulky feed. Alternatively, they should be soaked well before feeding.
Light work: 10%-15% of bulk feed may be replaced with grass pellets, ie. 1 to 1.5kg
Medium work: Up to 25% grass pellets, ie. up to 2.25kg
Hard work: Up to 33% grass pellets, ie. up to 3kg
