The Hungry Puppy is a proud carrier of Dengie Horse Feeds. The Dengie philosophy is to create the best and healthiest feeds they can and supporting research projects into equine nutrition plays an important part in the company’s ongoing commitment to improve horse health. Dengie employs a team of highly qualified nutritionists who are actively involved in research projects with respected institutions around the world. This includes working with agronomists to develop their crops so they are even more nutritious for your horse – they are in the enviable position of being able to influence their feed right from the seed!
Founded in 1968 as a farmer’s cooperative, Dengie is still run today with the same ethos of supporting the local farming community. They grow as many of their own ingredients as possible which keeps their ‘feed miles’ low and provides the best traceability possible – every bag of their horse feed can be traced back to the field it was grown in.
Dengie pioneered the use of high temperature drying techniques in the UK to conserve the nutritional quality of fibre for horses. This drying process – unlike traditional sun-drying techniques used to make hay – allows crops to be harvested much earlier, making them more digestible and higher in energy and natural nutrients. This means their feeds are consistently clean with very low levels of dust and mould, making them ideal for the performance horse or those with respiratory problems.
Their commitment to the nutritional care and well-being of horses will always be the main reason you can rely on Dengie.
