Why Micronize

Micronizing is a “Short Time, High Temperature” patented process using the grains moisture and infrared heat to achieve conditions essential for the optimal cooking of starch and starch gelatinisation. During processing the grain becomes soft and pliable, causing the reconfiguration of the starch structure (gelatinisation). Immediate flaking fully gelatinises the starches so as to significantly enhance the digestibility and nutritional value of the feed.


The small intestine is the epicentre of nutrient digestion in the horse. Vitamins, minerals, fats, protein and starch are readily absorbed in the small intestine. Research shows that feed digested in the small intestine significantly increases the rate of glucose (energy) absorption. The starch in


MICRMAIZE® is over 95% digested in the horse’s small intestine where as the starch in whole, crushed or steam flaked maize is only 20-30% digested. The remaining starch is then fermented in the large intestine, this in turn increases the burden on the large intestine producing elevated levels of lactic acid, gas and heat.


MICRMAIZE® flakes transfer the site of digestion back to the small intestine improving feed efficiency and reducing the burden on the hind gut resulting in fewer incidences of dietary induced problems such as colic, acidosis, laminitis, loss of appetite, nervousness, fatigue and reduced performance.


HYGAIN® MICRONIZED feeds and MICRGRAIN’S® provide nutritional benefits for all classes of horses.

Feeding Rates

1kg of cracked or steam flaked maize can be replaced with approximately 750g of MICRMAIZE.

MICRMAIZE flakes can be fed on their own or mixed with other grains such as MICRLUPINS,

MICRBARLEY and or oats to meet dietary requirements or used as a top up to premixed, pelleted or extruded feeds and should be fed with a minimum of 1% of body weight as fibre such as quality pasture/ hay and or chaff.

Feeding amount may be influenced by age, breed, desired body condition, exercise intensity, gestation and lactation status, pasture/hay quality and availability and climate. Care should be taken to match feed intake to dietary requirements. Reduce grain intake on rest days, if horses gain weight and / or training regime is interrupted.

FEEDING TIPS

1kg of cracked or steam flaked maize can be replaced with approximately 750g of MICRMAIZE.

MICRMAIZE flakes can be fed on their own or mixed with other grains such as MICRLUPINS,

MICRBARLEY and or oats to meet dietary requirements or used as a top up to premixed, pelleted or extruded feeds and should be fed with a minimum of 1.5% of body weight as fibre such as quality pasture/ hay and or chaff.

Feeding amount may be influenced by age, breed, desired body condition, exercise intensity, gestation and lactation status, pasture/hay quality and availability and climate. Care should be taken to match feed intake to dietary requirements. Reduce grain intake on rest days, if horses gain weight and / or training regime is interrupted.

  1. Introduce HYGAIN MICRMAIZE to your horse’s diet gradually over a 7-14 day period.
  2. Feed by weight and not by volume.
  3. Feed a minimum of 1.5% of your horse’s body weight daily as roughage.
  4. Horses have a small stomach, so feed little and often.
  5. Ensure horses have access to clean water.
  6. For dietary recommendations and nutritional solutions contact HYGAIN.
