Feeding rates per dayAs a supplemental fibre source when fed with hay* **HYGAIN® MICRBEET® can be fed on its own (principle ingredient) at increased levels along with roughage and a mineral and vitamin supplement such as HYGAIN® BALANCED® or HYGAIN® SPORTHORSE®.
*Intended as guide only, all variables should be taken into consideration.
As a supplemental fibre source when fed with premixed feeds and hay*HYGAIN® MICRBEET® can be fed as an addition to your horse’s premixed feed/grains and roughage. HYGAIN® MICRBEET® can also be used as a top dressing to encourage the intake of less palatable feeds.
Grazing should be restricted and the soaking of hay is recommended for equines prone to starch/sugar related conditions (e.g.: laminitis, grain intolerance, cushings etc.). HYGAIN® MICRBEET® may also be used in conjunction with HYGAIN® ZERO® the unique low Carb – low GI formula providing the required balance of daily nutrients in the diet.
*Intended as a guide only, all variables should be taken into consideration.**Recommended to be fed with a Mineral and Vitamin supplement to balance the diet.
Do not feed dry. Soak HYGAIN® MICRBEET® prior to feeding at a ratio of 5 parts water to 1 part HYGAIN® MICRBEET® for 10 minutes in cold water or 5 minutes in hot water. Use within 24 hours of soaking.
Fat – HYGAIN recommends the use of HYGAIN® RBO® Equine Performance Oil in cases such as PSSM or Tying-Up where horses may benefit from additional fat in their diet for concentrated slow release energy and general conditioning.
Electrolytes – During periods of heavy sweat loss and/or warmer climates supplementation with an electrolyte such as HYGAIN® REGAIN® is recommended.
"When extra fibre is required in my horses diets, Micrbeet and Fibressentials are used as supplementary feeds. They give me peace of mind knowing they provide consistent nutritional values all year round, are low in starch (which causes fizzy behaviour) and provide superior conditioning. If I am looking for increased muscle mass and topline then I also add a bit of Showtorque!
Finally I am a big believer in surrounding yourself with good people and high quality products. I love working with Hygain because the feeds cannot be faulted and the staff are only too willing to help. Thanks Hygain!"
