BALANCED® HORSE PELLETS
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.
Prebiotics incorporated in HYGAIN® BALANCED® horse pellets have a defined mode of action, promoting a healthy gut and supporting natural defences essential for optimum health and performance.
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 from horse pellets 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 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.
HORSE PELLET FEEDING TIPS
HYGAIN® BALANCED® horse pellets are 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® horse pellets 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 chaff and or hay. Seek professional advice.
“I have been feeding Hygain Balanced for nine years now on a number of different horses from Spanish PRE, Lusitano and Warmblood that have been breeding and performance stallions, broodmares or performance mares.
Hygain Balanced is a balancer feed, so you only have to feed a small amount and the horse will get its full daily requirements of nutrients, vitamins and energy!
I was also drawn to Hygain Balanced for it’s high levels of Vitamin E, Biotin and Prebiotics.
My four High Performance stallions, ranging from 3 to 14 years all thrive on this hard feed, their coats are glossy, their hooves grow tremendously well and what is important - this does not fizz or make any of my horses hot and economically it is fantastic- a little goes a long way!”
"I run a team with a wide range of horses, therefore I need a core feed that suits them all; the hot horses, the horses with metabolic issues, the horses prone to tying up etc. Hygain Balanced covers all of our team of horses.
Balanced is very economical feed, however it also has an amazing nutrient profile which allows the good doers to maintain their weight whilst we can add a fattener for the lighter horses and know that they are nutrient covered by the balanced feed, without the energy and heat other feeds create."
"At Dynamik Stallions the staple pellet we can’t live without is HYGAIN BALANCED®. This pellet gives us confidence that all our ponies are receiving the daily vitamins and mineral they require in a convenient low dose. This pellet is perfect to feed to ponies that are good doers as it does not create any fizzy behaviour and the ponies look healthy and shiny fed with good quality fibre sources.
One of the most useful things about feeding HYGAIN BALANCED® is that you can be assured that the daily nutrient requirements are met by making up the shortfalls in a diet."
"One of my top competition horses recently contracted a virus and had to have a few months off. I took him off his regular higher energy feed and put him onto Balanced. He did very well on this feed, and he has come back in to work months earlier than expected. He looks so good that I swapped my other horses onto it too. Coupled with the amazing RBO oil supplement the feed gives the horses just the right amount of cool energy and they look and feel great. I have fed Hygain feeds for nearly 30 years and whatever the horse they have the right feed for my needs.”
