Hygain Micrbeet 20kg

Hygain Micrbeet is high in soluble fibre and low in sugar, suitable for all equines regardless of age and use.

HYGAIN MICRBEET has the outstanding feature of providing digestible energy ranging between good quality hay and grains in the form of soluble fibre as opposed to sourcing energy from starches and sugars.

  • High in soluble fibres to maintain a healthy gut.
  • Increases the caloric content and energy density in the diet.
  • Encourages intake of less palatable feeds, ideal for the fussy eaters.
  • High fibre, low starch formula ideal for horses prone to metabolic related issues.
  • Provides calm conditioning ideal for excitable horses.
  • Soak in water to create a mash that provides an adequate fibre substitute for dentally challenged equines.

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.

Additional Supplementation

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.
