More Chew Time = Less Time on an Empty Stomach

Did you know?

The number of chewing movements for roughage (hay, grass, etc.) is much greater than with concentrates. Horses make 800 to 1200 chewing movements per 1 kg (2.2 lb) of concentrate, while 1 kg (2.2 lb) of roughage requires 3000 to 3500 chewing movements. Meaning it takes at least 3x longer to chew long stem forage compared to a dense concentrate when fed at the same rate. Adding 35% chaff to your concentrates will double chew time.
