HYGAIN Feeds has developed in association with breeders a HYGAIN® MARE AND FOAL PELLET concentrate for spelling horses through to lactating mares. HYGAIN's Mare and Foal Pellet is designed to have a low "glycemic index" to assist in reducing the risk of Developmental Orthopaedic Disease associated with high carbohydrate diets.

HYGAIN® MARE AND FOAL PELLET also contains Yea Sacc1026, a live yeast culture that provides beneficial bacteria in the hindgut and improves fibre digestion and mineral uptake. The essential micro-minerals in HYGAIN Mare and Foal Pellet are in a chelated form for increased bio-availability. Research has shown that chelated minerals are more readily absorbed by the horse.

HYGAIN operates the only GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice), HACCP certified and Feedsafe accredited Equine Only feed mill in the southern hemisphere.

HYGAIN® MARE AND FOAL PELLET'S winning formula is a blend of the following quality ingredients:
  • High Fibre Soya Hulls

  • Micrlupins®

  • Micrmaize®

  • Pollard

  • Canola Meal

  • Lucerne Meal

  • Sodium Bentonite

  • Calcium Carbonate

  • Di-Calcium Phosphate

  • Salt

  • Magnesium Oxide Hygain Vitamin and Mineral Premix
