Based on super fibres providing an enhanced level of digestibility, HYGAIN® FIBRESSENTIAL®‘s feeding rates can be reduced by a third in volume when compared to chaff. HYGAIN® FIBRESSENTIAL® also features reduced sugar levels and a balanced Calcium to Phosphorous ratio.
HYGAIN® FIBRESSENTIAL® is easy to feed and will provide superior conditioning whilst significantly reducing the dust and inconsistency often associated with traditional forms of chaff.

FIBRESSENTIAL®is a blend of the following ingredients:
Beet pulp, Lupin hulls, Soya bean hulls, millrun and Calcium Carbonate.
HYGAIN® FIBRESSENTIAL® can be fed as a complete chaff and partial hay replacer, encouraging natural foraging behaviour. The use of chaff is not required.
How to feed
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.
How much to feed
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 chaff, as such you can feed approximately a third of the volume that you currently feed of chaff. (e.g. For every dipper of 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®.)
