Chelated minerals for improved absorption and bioavailability
Natural Vitamin E
All Hygain® feeds and ration balancers contain a highly stable, biologically active form of natural vitamin E (d-ɑ-tocopherol). Natural vitamin E protects cells from free radical damage while also supporting normal circulatory and neuromuscular functions. The natural form of vitamin E is preferentially absorbed by the body over synthetic sources. With pasture being the most abundant source of vitamin E in the equine diet, a formula with natural vitamin E is essential for horses who are not on full-time pasture.
Prebiotic fibers promote a healthy gut flora by providing nourishment to beneficial microbes in the digestive tract of the horse, particularly the hindgut. By nourishing this environment, prebiotics support improved digestive function, a strengthened immune system, and an overall healthier horse. At Hygain®, one of our prebiotics of choice is added mannan oligosaccharides (MOS) derived from the cell wall of the specific yeast culture Saccharomyces cerevisiae 1026. Research has shown that MOS can bind harmful bacteria in the digestive tract, boost immunoglobulins in colostrum, and increase beneficial bacteria populations when provided in a horse’s diet.
Rice Bran Oil
Hygain® RBO® Equine Performance Oil is a blend of pure rice bran oil containing essential fatty acids and natural antioxidants formulated for all equines. This unique oil contains natural vitamin E and aids as a carrier for fat-soluble vitamins. Added rice bran oil promotes a shiny coat and increases cool burning energy in the diet without promoting excitability.
Selenium has antioxidant functions as a component of the glutathione peroxidase enzyme complex, which scavenges free radicals to limit oxidative stress in the body. The organic form of selenium, selenium yeast, has greater absorption and retention in the body when compared to inorganic forms. Through preferential uptake in the body, selenium yeast plays a critical role in optimal functioning of the muscular and nervous systems, in addition to its importance in immune system function.
Hygain® Tru Breed® provides a balance of digestible energy, soluble fiber, quality protein, and essential vitamins and minerals for optimum growth and pregnancy. Foals may be introduced to Hygain® Tru Breed by creep feeding from 2-3 weeks of age at a feeding rate of 1 lb. per month of age.
Our controlled moisture and pressure cooking process promotes highly available nutrients for digestion and improved feed safety. The extruded cube can be soaked in water, resulting in a mash that is ideal for horses with poor dentition.
Hygain® Tru Breed® should be introduced to your horse’s diet gradually. Adjust intake according to pregnancy and lactation status, age, breed, growth rate, body condition, work load, and pasture/hay availability and quality. Tru Breed should be fed in conjunction with quality pasture, hay, or soluble fiber sources.
- Introduce Hygain® Tru Breed to your horse’s diet gradually over a 7-10 day period.
- Feed by weight, not by volume.
- Feed a minimum of 1% of your horse’s body weight daily as roughage.
- Free choice salt should be offered at all times.
- Ensure horses have access to clean water.
- Do not add additional vitamins or minerals unless directed by a veterinarian or nutritionist.
- Contact Hygain® for additional dietary recommendations and nutritional solutions.
