HYGAIN® GROTORQUE® is a micronized sweet feed concentrate scientifically formulated and balanced to meet the nutritional requirements of growing horses, mares and stallions. HYGAIN® GROTORQUE®, the breeders’ choice for weanling & yearling sales preparation.

HYGAIN® GROTORQUE®is a blend of the following quality ingredients:

Micronized Lupins, Micronized Beans , Sunflower Seeds, Soya Bean Meal,  Canola Meal, Lucerne Meal, Rice Bran Oil, Natural Vitamin E, Lysine, Molasses, Salt, Calcium Carbonate, Di-Calcium Phosphate, Magnesium Oxide, Prebiotic (MOS), Probiotic (live yeast), Methionine, Biotin and HYGAIN® Vitamin and Chelated Mineral Premix.

Special Ingredients:

Prebiotic – Prebiotics incorporated in HYGAIN® GROTORQUE® have a defined mode of action, promoting a healthy gut and supporting natural defences essential for optimum health and performance.

Natural Vitamin E – This unique and highly stable form of Natural Vitamin E known as RRR-a-tocopherol is up to 5 times more bio available and potent than regular synthetic sources of Vitamin E. Research has shown that this form of Natural Vitamin E provides higher retention levels in plasma further aiding antioxidant, immune, cardiovascular, circulatory, neuromuscular and reproductive functions.

HYGAIN® RBO® – RBO® Equine Performance Oil® is a blend of rice bran oil, omega 3, 6 & 9 essential fatty acids and natural anti-oxidants known to improve the health and structural integrity of cell membranes. RBO® oil plays an important role in maximising energy efficiency due to its energy dense nature and is digested efficiently in the small intestine reducing the ‘sugar high’ associated with high grain diets. RBO® promotes growth and development of the muscular system, top line and a healthy skin and coat.

Biotin – Biotin, a water soluble vitamin is required by the enzymes responsible for protein synthesis and as a result is an essential vitamin for the healthy growth of hair and hooves. Research has shown that biotin improves skin and coat condition, increases hoof integrity and is widely recommended by farriers and veterinarians.

Probiotics – Probiotics are good bacteria that stimulate the activity of other good bacteria in the horse’s digestive tract. The addition of probiotics (live yeast) to equine diets improves fibre, phosphorus and calcium digestibility and increases gross energy, total lipid and amino acid absorption.
