For most of man’s long association with and dependence upon the horse, there was only one supplementary food to grass and hay: oats.
They were fed varying proportions of oats and hay depending on their level of work and the choice was either whole or rolled oats. Oats were available and, most importantly, were best suited to a horse’s digestive system.
They have been considered the "safest" grain to feed horses because their starch is more easily digested in the horse's small intestine than the starches in maize or barley. This minimizes the potential for undigested starches to reach the horse's hind gut, where they can cause colic.
OATAALIN mix is designed to give horses the best of whole natural foods in three key grains: the digestibility and energy of Oats, the Calcium & Vitamins and buffer to acidity in Alfalfa and Omega 3, 6, & 9 Fatty Acids in Linseed.
We have been making haylage for sale to horse owners here on the Highclere Estate for over 20 years and take great pride in the quality and consistency of what we make.

In 2010 Porchester Farm invested in an Automated Robot, over the last ten years we have gradually upgraded the equipment. This machine has enabled improved efficiency and reduced manual handling. The automated bagging line weighs, fills, labels and stiches bags ready to be stacked by the Robot.
