The grasslands in the foothills of the Bavarian Alps, from which Agrobs AlpenHeu comes, are a true natural treasure – an ideal location where, thanks to the combination of altitude and calcium-rich soil, meadows grow rich in grasses and wild herbs.
Agrobs AlpenHeu is harvested at just the right time and at the correct height. The harvest is determined by the vegetation, taking place between the end of blossoming and seed production. This provides the high fiber content required for horses, also ensuring a low protein and fructan content.
After harvesting, the grasses and herbs are dried carefully and then mixed with sun-dried hay before dust is removed. The result is high-quality, dust-free Agrobs AlpenHeu. The unique composition of ingredients provides a variety of minerals, trace elements and vitamins, leading to the great taste of Agrobs AlpenHeu.
Regular monitoring of the crops is crucial to the high quality of Agrobs AlpenHeu. At least once a year, plant stock, condition of soil and surface cultivation are checked.
