MAAAX™ Equine feed
To promote digestive and mental health, MAAAX™ forage particles are at least 1.77 inches in length. Traditional cubes max out at about 1-1 1/4 inches which may not have sufficient fiber to fulfill the daily demands of your horse.
Up to 50% more digestible power is produced by MAAAX™. Even performance horses supplied with a 100% forage diet will have better health than those fed with elevated concentrate quantities.
Longer Chewing Abilities
MAAAX™ enables longer chewing times and more saliva output to improve the fermentation process and help the horse's delicate and complicated digestive system to improve general health. Saliva flow enables the gastrointestinal tract to maintain stable pH concentrations and helps to buffer gastric acid.
MAAAX™ allows for better re-hydration and longer performance abilities in horses.
MAAAX™ lengthy fibers create an optimal substitute for hay and sometimes even concentrates.
Grown and produced in Ontario under strict controls, MAAAX™ Equine Feed Products provide consistent quality nutrition all year long.
Virtually Dust Free
MAAAX™ Equine Feed reduces the risk of respiratory problems.
Virtually No Wastage
Every cube is consumed whereas hay can end up as very expensive bedding.
Guaranteed Nutrient Content
Every MAAAX™ bag comes with a guaranteed analysis of nutrient composition. Hay varies flake to flake, bale to bale.
Better Feed Intake
MAAAX™ cubes encourage healthy appetites in stressed and fussy horses by increasing available fiber intake.
Convenient, Convenient, Convenient
MAAAX™ products are an effective way to monitor feed rations and are easy to handle, store and transport.
"We have started using Great Lakes Agra MAAAX LONGfibe forage cubes and switched all of our horses to GLA Beet Pulp Pellets from shredded beet pulp. The difference in 30 days has been noticeable and exciting. Less hay loss means more weight on the horses and lower feed costs. GLA Beet Pulp Pellets have been wonderful because they cut down on feed time, reduce flies attracted by soaking shreds and have a higher nutritional value for the same cost. Needless to say we are hooked on Great Lakes Agra."

iTrack™ Seed to Stable Concept
Every field is inspected and certified by a third party agronomists. Inspections are mandatory at every step of production including site selection, seed establishment and throughout growth stages. This is where our trade mark iTrack™ Agra system initializes making the forage products electronically traceable for each individual bag back to the field.
We source our forage through a network of contract growers situated near the plant. The crops are inspected by 3rd party agronomists throughout the growing season to ensure the quality and safety of the forage.
We closely monitor our harvesting window to achieve the low protein, high fiber profile in our forage. Additionally, by harvesting in the post bloom stage, there are many benefits to the grower and the environment. Some benefits include higher yields, improved soil fertility, and higher crop volume.
Using our state of the art processing plant, the forage is ground, blended, cubed, dried and cooled before it is packaged into bags. During the process, the cells of the forage are opened which provides more digestible energy per pound of forage. Product quality is monitored throughout the packaging process. Each bag of cubes is coded to allow trace-ability back to the field.
