Products - First Class Chaff

Raw product is sourced locally from farms across the wider Canterbury area.

lan and Marg personally view the products and ensure each product is top quality before it is brought back to the yard here in Christchurch.

A traditional, and proven method of chaff cutting is used to ensure that the product is cut short for palatability for the animals.

Since October 2018 Lucerne, Meadow and Timothy chaff is blended with Rapeseed oil. Rapeseed oil has been proven to be a BALANCED - omega-6 to omega-3 (2:1) ratio. This balance assists anti- inflammatory responses for the animal consuming the product. The higher omega-3 of 11% for rapeseed oil assists in balancing fatty acids in high grain diets. read more

Oil can be deleted in products made to order - by just advising NO OIL at the time of ordering.
