A readily digestible micronized sweet feed, scientifically formulated to provide the necessary energy, quality protein and balanced levels of macro and micro nutrients to ensure health, fertility and optimum growth in stud horses and their progeny.
A diet for healthy mares and happy foals.
HYGAIN® STUDTORQUE® is a blend of the following quality ingredients:
Cooked and Flaked Oats, Micronized Barley, Micronized Lupins, Micronized Beans, Micronized Maize, Soya Bean Meal, Canola Meal, Lucerne Meal, Rice Bran Oil, Natural Vitamin E, Molasses, Calcium Carbonate, Di-Calcium Phosphate, Magnesium Oxide, Salt, Bio-Available Silicon, Prebiotic (MOS), Probiotic (live yeast), Bio-Available Selenium, Lysine, Methionine, Biotin, HYGAIN® Vitamin and Chelated Mineral Premix.
Bio-Available Silicon – Research has shown that Bio-Available Silicon a digestible form of monosilic acid has a role in bone physiology and metabolism by increasing osteoblastic (bone building) activity and decreasing osteoclastic (bone demineralization) activity, promoting optimal skeletal growth, integrity and durability.
Bio-Available Selenium – Selenium acts as an antioxidant to prevent fatty acid oxidation which can cause tissue damage. Research has shown that an organic form of selenium, is more readily absorbed and retained than selenium in inorganic forms.
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 ofVitamin 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.
Prebiotic – Prebiotics incorporated in HYGAIN® STUDTORQUE® have a defined mode of action, promoting a healthy gut and supporting natural defences essential for optimum health and performance.
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.
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.
