Hygain® Fibressential® is a revolutionary fibre source suitable for all equines.

The guaranteed uniform nutritional values make FIBRESSENTIAL® your first choice for fibre. Based on super fibres providing an enhanced level of digestibility, FIBRESSENTIAL‘s feeding rates can be reduced by a third in volume when compared to traditional horse chaff.

FIBRESSENTIAL® also features reduced sugar levels and a balanced Calcium to Phosphorous ratio. FIBRESSENTIAL® is 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).

FIBRESSENTIAL® provides calcium and phosphorus in a balanced ratio, supporting the maintenance of healthy bones.

Nutritional values of chaff can vary greatly according to the season, FIBRESSENTIAL® provides consistent nutrient values all year round.

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. Nuggets are processed in a manner that greatly reduces the dust and fines that are often present in traditional fibre sources, ideal for horses with respiratory problems and dust-allergies.

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 Rates

Feeding amount may be influenced by age, breed, appetite, exercise, desired body condition, pasture/hay quality and availability.

Dry
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®)

Wet
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®.)

FEEDING TIPS FOR FIBRESSENTIAL® NUTRITIONALLY ENHANCED CHAFF REPLACEMENT NUGGETS

HYGAIN® FIBRESSENTIAL® can be fed as a complete horse chaff and partial hay replacer, encouraging natural foraging behaviour. The use of chaff is not required.

Fed as a supplemental fibre source when fed with premixed feeds and hay
HYGAIN® FIBRESSENTIAL® can be fed as an addition to your horse’s premixed feed/grains and roughage. HYGAIN® FIBRESSENTIAL® can also be used as a top dressing to encourage intake of less palatable feeds.

Fed as a supplemental fibre source when fed with hay
HYGAIN® FIBRESSENTIAL® can be fed on its own (principal ingredient) at increased levels alongside roughage and a mineral and vitamin supplement such as HYGAIN® BALANCED® or HYGAIN® SPORTHORSE® ensuring a fully balanced diet.

Feeding amount may be influenced by age, breed, appetite, exercise, desired body condition, pasture/hay quality and availability.
