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, HYGAIN® FIBRESSENTIAL®‘s feeding rates can be reduced by a third in volume when compared to chaff. HYGAIN® FIBRESSENTIAL® also features reduced sugar levels and a balanced Calcium to Phosphorous ratio.
HYGAIN® FIBRESSENTIAL® is easy to feed and will provide superior conditioning whilst significantly reducing the dust and inconsistency often associated with traditional forms of chaff.
Traditional fibre sources (insoluble) are poorly utilised, which often means that horse owners are required to feed more starches and sugars (grain) in order to meet energy requirements. Super Fibres, also known as soluble fibres provide greater feed efficiency and a reduced dependence on grain concentrates to maintain condition. Super fibres provide digestible energy ranging between that of good quality hay and grains, offering an alternative energy source with less sugar (fizz).
HYGAIN® FIBRESSENTIAL® may also be used to replace part of the grain/premix feed in the diet, lowering starch intake whilst retaining the digestible energy level.
Balanced Calcium to Phosphorous ratio
HYGAIN® FIBRESSENTIAL® provides calcium and phosphorus in a balanced ratio supporting the maintenance of healthy bones
HYGAIN® FIBRESSENTIAL® nuggets are processed in a manner that greatly reduces the dust and fines that are often present in traditional fibre sources, providing an ideal fibre source for horses with respiratory problems and dust-allergies.
Consistent nutritional values
Nutritional values of chaff can vary greatly according to the season. Like all HYGAIN® products, HYGAIN® FIBRESSENTIAL® provides consistent nutrient values all year round.
Feed dry or wet
The extruded nugget can be soaked in water, resulting in a mash that provides an adequate fibre substitute for dentally challenged equines.
