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.
HYGAIN FIBRESSENTIAL is approximately three times the density of hay based horse chaff, as such you can feed approximately a third of the volume that you currently feed of chaff. (e.g. For every dipper of horse chaff fed, replace with 1/3 of a dipper of HYGAIN FIBRESSENTIAL)
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®).
