Hygain Fibre Essential
HYGAIN® FIBRESSENTIAL® is a revolutionary fibre source suitable for all equines. The guaranteed uniform nutritional values make HYGAIN® FIBRESSENTIAL® your first choice for fibre. Based on super fibres providing an enhanced level of digestibility.
- Features reduced sugar levels and a balanced Calcium to Phosphorous ratio.
- Easy to feed and will provide superior conditioning whilst significantly reducing the dust and inconsistency often associated with traditional forms of chaff.
- Super fibres provide digestible energy ranging between that of good quality hay and grains, offering an alternative energy source with less sugar (fizz).
- This horse chaff provides calcium and phosphorus in a balanced ratio supporting the maintenance of healthy bones.
- The extruded nugget can be soaked in water, resulting in a mash that provides an adequate fibre substitute for dentally challenged equines. A great option for cool fibre horse feed.
Feeding amount may be influenced by age, breed, appetite, exercise, desired body condition, pasture/hay quality and availability.
HYGAIN® FIBRESSENTIAL® is approximately three times the density of hay based chaff, as such you can feed approximately a third of the volume that you currently feed of chaff. (e.g. For every dipper of chaff fed, replace with 1/3 of a dipper of HYGAIN® FIBRESSENTIAL®)
HYGAIN® FIBRESSENTIAL® can be soaked to provide a high fibre mash for horses with poor dentition. Add water (warm or cold) to a similar volume of HYGAIN® FIBRESSENTIAL® and wait 10 minutes before feeding. (e.g. Add half a dipper of water to half a dipper of FIBRESSENTIAL®.)
