Why Standlee? Let the Research Show You

To show the benefit of feeding the highest quality forage or hay-based fiber source for your beloved equine and livestock partners, Standlee Premium Western Forage commissioned two studies through the Purina Animal Nutrition Center facility near St. Louis, MO.

The studies focused on the metabolic response, palatability, and visual quality indicators of Alfalfa and Timothy Grass varieties.

80% of horse owners believe forage appearance is indicative of nutrient quality. Standlee products are judged to be consistently greener, smell fresher, and appear cleaner than locally-sourced hay.
