What's inside

BALANCED

Bio-Available Selenium

Selenium acts as an antioxidant to prevent fatty acid oxidation which can cause tissue damage. Research has shown that an organic form of selenium, is more readily absorbed and retained than selenium in inorganic forms.

Prebiotic

Prebiotics incorporated in HYGAIN® BALANCED® have a defined mode of action, promoting a healthy gut and supporting natural defences essential for optimum health and performance.

Biotin

Biotin, a water soluble vitamin is required by the enzymes responsible for protein synthesis and as a result is an essential vitamin for the healthy growth of hair and hooves. Research has shown that biotin improves skin and coat condition, increases hoof integrity and is widely recommended by farriers, veterinarians and scientists.

Natural Vitamin E

This unique and highly stable form of Natural Vitamin E known as RRR-a-tocopherol is up to 5 times more bio available and potent than regular synthetic sources of Vitamin E. Research has shown that this form of Natural Vitamin E provides higher retention levels in plasma further aiding antioxidant, immune, cardiovascular, circulatory, neuromuscular and reproductive functions.

Probiotics

Probiotics are good bacteria that stimulate the activity of other good bacteria in the horse’s digestive tract. The addition of probiotics (live yeast) to equine diets improves fibre, phosphorus and calcium digestibility and increases gross energy, total lipid and amino acid absorption.

Guide

FEEDING TIPS

HYGAIN BALANCED is formulated as a concentrate and contains quality protein for fertility and reproduction, essential amino acids for muscle building, along with balanced levels of critical macro and micro trace minerals for sound skeletal development and Prebiotics for optimum gut health and immune system defences.

HYGAIN BALANCED can be fed on its own when horses do not require additional grain or used to balance home mixed diets or top up premixed feeds when not used to recommended levels

Adjust grain intake according to pregnancy and lactation status, age, breed, growth rate, body condition, work load and pasture/hay availability and quality.

If horses are obese, laminitic or suffering from developmental orthopaedic disease remove grain from the diet and feed HYGAIN BALANCED with quality forage. Seek professional advice.

  1. Introduce HYGAIN BALANCED to your horse’s diet gradually over a 7-14 day period.
  2. Feed by weight and not by volume.
  3. Feed a minimum of 1% of your horse’s body weight daily as roughage.
  4. Horses have a small stomach, so feed little and often.
  5. Ensure horses have access to clean water.
  6. Do not add additional vitamins or minerals unless directed by a veterinarian or nutritionist.
  7. For dietary recommendations and nutritional solutions contact HYGAIN.

“I’ve been using Hygain feeds for almost a year now and it has been the best decision I have ever made for my barrel horses. Both my mares have gained so much muscle mass and weight and are performing better than they ever have. I love that they have different formulas to fit the needs of each individual horse. The company itself is extremely professional and educational about their products and they’ve been so helpful in making sure my horses get exactly what they need to perform at a professional level. I 100% recommend!! THANK YOU HYGAIN FEEDS!”
