GWF Fibregest 20kg bag

£17.00

Fibregest is a very high quality ‘super soluble fibre feed’, derived from a blend of micronized (sugar) beet pulp, hemp seed meal and lean black oats; fortified with seaweed meal, chelated minerals and Oatinol.

 

Maintaining natural foregut digestion is crucial for the health and vitality of Alpacas and Llamas. The nature of the feed can have dramatic effects on wellbeing, as all food goes straight into the fermentation vat of the forestomach where factors like motility, gas eructation, regurgitation, remastication and reswallowing are all part of the normal feeding process. Fibregest is very complementary to this digestive process in terms of the nutritional, physical and supplementary content.

What is Fibregest?

Fibregest is a very high quality ‘super soluble fibre feed’, derived from a blend of micronized (sugar) beet pulp, hemp seed meal and lean black oats; fortified with seaweed meal, chelated minerals and Oatinol.

Maintaining natural foregut digestion is crucial for the health and vitality of Alpacas and Llamas. The nature of the feed can have dramatic effects on wellbeing, as all food goes straight into the fermentation vat of the forestomach where factors like motility, gas eructation, regurgitation, remastication and reswallowing are all part of the normal feeding process. Fibregest is very complementary to this digestive process in terms of the nutritional, physical and supplementary content. The digestibility of the soluble fibre will energize microbial activity, so maintaining a high rate of nutrient release for the benefit of the camelid.The criteria for maintaining functional fermentation:

  • A constant pH of between 6 and 7, i.e. slightly acidic to neutral conditions.

  • A high fibre and low/non grain diet to sustain populations of cellulolytic bugs.

  • A high fibre diet to maintain saliva production, gut motility and gas eructation.

  • A high fibre diet to maximise regurgitation, remastication and reswallowing.

Why should I feed Fibregest to my camelid?

Soluble fibre in 3mm pellet form is ideal for both young and old alike. The fact that the particle size is small (as if it had been chewed for a long time) aids the digestive system of the camelid by providing a high quality, more available, energy source for fermentative foregut bacteria.
