HYGAIN® MICRBEET® is high in well-fermentable 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 that of good quality hay and grains in the form of soluble fibre as opposed to sourcing energy from starches and sugars.HYGAIN®’s revolutionary cooking process micronization enhances the soaking time and palatability of HYGAIN® MICRBEET®.
Ideal for performance horses, HYGAIN® MICRBEET® can be used as a chaff replacer increasing the energy density of the daily diet. HYGAIN® MICRBEET® may also be used to replace part of the grain/premixed feed in the diet, lowering starch intake whilst retaining the digestible energy level. Energy derived from well-fermentable fibre sources, such as HYGAIN® MICRBEET® are readily digested and safer to feed. Hence, horses with digestive disorders may benefit from HYGAIN® MICRBEET® as it promotes smooth digestion.
Horses with respiratory problems may benefit from HYGAIN® MICRBEET® as it is a dust-free fibre source once soaked. HYGAIN® MICRBEET®’s soft consistency provides horses with dental problems an adequate fibre source whilst maintaining body condition. HYGAIN® MICRBEET® is also ideal for endurance and excitable horses, where calm conditioning is required as it provides slow release energy and helps to restore and maintain fluid balance in the body.
HYGAIN® MICRBEET® is ideal for hard keepers and selective horses where weight gain is desired as it increases the caloric content and energy density in the diet. Horses susceptible to metabolic related disorders such as laminitis, insulin resistance, cushings, grain intolerance, Equine Metabolic Syndrome, PSSM and tying-up or any equine requiring a high fibre, low GI and low carbohydrate diet may also benefit from HYGAIN® MICRBEET®.
Feeding amount may be influenced by age, breed, appetite, exercise, desired body condition, pasture/hay quality and availability. The use of chaff is not required.
As 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®.
