High quality micronized barley. Micronized barley has special implications where small intestine amylase production is low (young livestock, companion animals, horses) and where hind gut production of short chain fatty acids are undesirable.

All species benefit from increased productivity - improved growth and production and improved feed conversion.

Gelatinised starch has significantly greater susceptibility to amylase degradation than raw starch; gelatinised starch disappears at an increased rate from the rumen - both as bypass carbohydrate and due to microbial utilisation; ileal digestibility is greater than raw starch, across species, and less starch is available for hind gut fermentation.

Suitable for all diets where barley is normally included. Recommended for high performance diets and young animal diets/small pets etc. Suitable for horses.

Particularly useful in young animal diets, but ideal for any age.
