Andy by Anderson Hay and Heinold Feeds team up to launch alfalfa-based feed pellets for young rabbits
Custom formula to support overall health of young or pregnant/lactating rabbits
Andy by Anderson Hay, a company that sells USDA certified organic and natural Timothy hay, alfalfa, bedding, and other food for rabbits, guinea pigs and the online small pet market, and Heinold Feeds, a long-time maker of feed pellets for rabbits, have collaborated to develop a new custom alfalfa-based feed pellet formula for young house rabbits.
"We are excited to partner up with Andy by Anderson Hay to bring a new line of rabbit pellets to the market. Their passion and commitment to their customers was very important to us. Together, we hope to provide a healthy, nutritious feed to rabbits across the nation," expressed Nick DeKryger, vice president at Belstra, the parent company of Heinold Feeds, in a company release.1
The partnership will consist of Andy marketing and selling the alfalfa-based feed pellets derived from Heinold's proprietary formula that features all-natural and high-quality ingredients, along with essential oil natural supplements. The specially formulated alfalfa feed pellets offer natural ingredients including forage, minerals, and vitamins for an optimal balance of nutrients to promote muscle growth, fur quality and overall health for young or pregnant/lactating rabbits. According to the release, early product sampling had positive results.1
A recommended food source by veterinarians, alfalfa pellets are an ideal diet for young rabbits under 6 months. The unique recipe eases stress and anxiety, fights respiratory problems, stimulating circulation and promoting heart health, including agents that are antimicrobial, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory.
The alfalfa-based pellet feeds for growing, lactating, and gestating rabbits come in in 5-, 10-, and 15-pound bag options.
