Teff Natural

Equis® Teff Natural harnesses the unique qualities of teff grass, which is recognized as an excellent forage for horses at risk or suffering from laminitis. It’s also a good choice for easy keepers with metabolic, sugar-starch sensitivities or allergies, or muscle problems. A grass hay-based pelleted feed, Teff Natural contains no fat or molasses and can be fed as a fiber supplement or as a complete diet.


  • Equis® Natural Teff takes advantage of the unique traits of teff hay, a warm season grass hay, which tends to be relatively low in NSC and calories. No molasses or added fat.
  • Equis Natural Teff can replace all or part of the horse’s forage and concentrate diet. Talk to your veterinarian or a nutritionist before substituting more than 50% of the diet with any complete, pelleted feed.
  • Includes Alltech® BioMOS® and Diamond V Yeast Culture® at manufacturer’s recommended levels for your horse’s digestive wellness and immune balance through nutritional excellence.
  • Equis Complete features SelPlex® from Alltech® as a natural yeast derived selenium source due to the low availability of this trace mineral in some forages.
  • Includes Zinpro® Performance Minerals®. Equis feeds contain complexed trace minerals including zinc, manganese and copper. These minerals may only be required in small amounts each day, but they play a critical role in numerous metabolic functions that affect the health of the horse.
