5. Guaranteed Nutrient Content

Every MAAAX™ bag comes with a guaranteed analysis of nutrient composition. Hay varies flake to flake, bale to bale.

6. Better Grain Intake

MAAAX™ cubes encourage healthy appetites in stressed and fussy horses by increasing available fibre intake.

7. Convenient, Convenient, Convenient

MAAAX™ products are an effective way to monitor feed rations and are easy to handle, store and transport.

Horses graze up to 16 hours a day to take up enough forage and meet their chewing requirements. The forage intake should have a daily total of 1.5%-3% of body weight in dry matter including grass, hay, and straw, and of course MAAAX™ LONGfibe™ cubes to secure a complete and healthy ration. The chewing is important to produce enough saliva to buffer gastric acid and hold all digestive fluids in balance.

Fiber particle length must be above 3.6cm (1.4 inches) to prolong chewing and to increase saliva production 3-5 liters per kg of material which is needed to prevent gastric ulceration, choking and to maintain physical and mental health. MAAAX™ LONGfibe™ cubes have a minimum length of 4.5cm (1.77inches).



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.  

Growing

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.

Harvesting

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.

Processing

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 traceability back to the field.
