Mollichaff Veteran is a high fibre forage mix designed to complement the forage ration where necessary.
Veteran contains a balanced blend of dried grass, dried alfalfa and oat straw and is topped with a dressing combining linseed and soil oil with a very light dressing of molasses, plus added vitamins and minerals, plant-based antioxidants, mint, nettle, salt and added biotin.
The high palatability of Veteran makes it ideal for horses and ponies that are unable to consume long forage and require a partial forage replacer. This also makes it extremely appealing to even the fussiest of feeders that require an additional forage source. Veteran is also suitable for youngstock.Find a stockist
