Crude Protein 12 % Calcium 1.2%
Crude Fat 4% Phosphorus 0.6 %
Max Crude Fibre 25% Max Starch 14%
Added Salt 1.25%

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

Soya Bean hulls, Vegetable Protein Meals, Legumes, Legume hulls, Mill run, Lucerne Meal, HYGAIN® RBO® Equine Performance Oil® (Rice Bran Oil including Omega essential fatty acids and natural antioxidants), Calcium Carbonate, Di-Calcium Phosphate, Salt, Magnesium Oxide and Hygain Vitamin and Mineral Premix.

Super Fibres – As the name suggests super fibre is a product that contains highly digestible fibre with very little non-digestible fibre. These highly digestible fibre sources provide horses with a calorie content similar to grain, however since they are fibre they are safer to feed and given that super fibres are digested in the hindgut(cecum and colon) they do not produce rapid changes in blood sugar (fizz) like grain. Super fibres are as safe to feed as chaff and even more digestible.

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.

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.

 

HYGAIN® ICE® – maximises condition, maintains control, is complete, convenient and cost effective.

HYGAIN® ICE® – ICE® is a scientifically formulated high fibre, low starch fortified pellet designed to maximise your horse or ponies condition while keeping it calm and cool. It is important to remember each horse should be treated as an individual when feeding. Be safe and sure, weigh all feedstuffs.

Fat animals are at high risk of laminitis; maintain your horse or pony at condition score 2½ to 3. If weight loss is necessary, the animal must be stabled or fitted with a grazing muzzle. Feed intake should be reduced to achieve a slow but steady loss under the supervision of your veterinary surgeon.

Only use Laminitis Trust Approved Feeds and limited long forage or restricted grazing to avoid laminitis. Animals may require a nutritional supplement; consult your veterinary surgeon, or nutritionist for advice. Further information on Laminitis is available at www.laminitis.org

    I have been using Hygain feeds for many years now. Odie really enjoys his Hygain Ice wherever he is around Australia or the World, I can confidently know that he will have enough energy to train or compete with out any extra unwanted fizz. It keeps him looking fit, healthy and in top condition.

    We have been using HYGAIN ICE on our adopted boy Heavy Horse Heaven Charlie, Charlie had a case of founder after a heavy rain which left our pastures very rich, poor Charlie was in a lot of pain we pulled him out of the big paddock and have him in a smaller paddock and his feed is supplemented with hay, chaff and HYGAIN ICE, we have noticed a huge difference in Charlie he has lost weight, his coat is nice and shiney, he has no signs of founder and his vet is extremely happy with his condition and recovery, I highly recommend this product and will continue using this feed for Charlie and his toosties so we never have another case of founder.

    A1+++++ product 🙂

    I took this boy on thinking just to fatten him up and let my niece ride. So I started him on Ultrabeet and barely booster plus extracool. I wasn’t seeing any change so I went to HYGAIN MICRBEET and HYGAIN ICE and within 2-3 months there was an impressive improvement.

    We also went through a bad bout of abscesses coming out in one of his back hooves which also had wall separation. But after the feed change and regular trims even the farrier thought it was a different horse.
