Tru Gain®


HYGAIN TRU GAIN®

The High Fat Conditioner

HYGAIN TRU GAIN® is a safe (slow release) and effective extruded high fat supplement, providing your horse with a cool energy source along with bio-available Vitamin E and Selenium. The increased energy density is designed to rapidly boost your horse’s body condition and assist performance horses in meeting their energy requirements.

HYGAIN TRU GAIN® as an alternative energy source provides the following benefits to your horse’s diet:
• Increases energy content of diet without fizz
• Reduces excitability
• Increases oxidative capacity in performance horses
• Acts as a carrier for fat soluble vitamins

HYGAIN TRU GAIN® is ideal for:
• Horses that require weight gain
• High Performance horses
• Endurance horses
• Show & sales preparation
• Horses prone to Tying Up/stomach ulcers
• Poor Doers
• Stud horses

Crude Protein 10 % Vitamin E 700 IU/kg
Crude Fat 20% Selenium 1 mg/kg
Max Crude Fibre 18% Phosphorus 0.5 %
Calcium 1%

HYGAIN TRU GAIN® is a blend of the following quality ingredients:

Rice Bran Oil, Bran, Legume Hulls, Soya-bean Meal, Natural Vitamin E, Bio-Available Selenium, Calcium Carbonate.

HYGAIN® RBO® Equine Performance Oil®– HYGAIN® 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. HYGAIN® 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. HYGAIN® RBO® promotes growth and development of the muscular system, top line and a healthy skin and coat.

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.

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 TRU GAIN® may also be used to decrease (partially replace) the amount of grain in your horse’s diet, providing a safer method of supplying calories. Reduced levels of starch intake may decrease the risk of feed related disorders such as colic, laminitis, acidosis, Equine Metabolic Syndrom and Cushings.

Horses that are adapted to dietary fat have an increased oxidative capacity and spare muscle and liver glycogen during aerobic exercise.

A high quality coat is partially dependent on providing horses with essential fatty acids for healthy skin and gleaming hair as provided in HYGAIN TRU GAIN®.

HYGAIN®’s controlled moisture and pressure cooking process (extrusion) promotes highly efficient digestion and nutrient utilisation and improved feed safety.

HYGAIN TRU GAIN® can be fed as an addition to your horse’s premixed feed/grains and roughage. Feeding amount may be influenced by age, breed, appetite, exercise, desired body condition and pasture/hay quality and availability.

hygain review on tru care before and after resultsHello Hygain team!

I just wanted to tell you how amazing your feeds have been in helping both my Thoroughbreds in weight and muscle gain throughout the winter.  I have noticed a massive change in my 15 year old geldings weight, top line, coat and attitude! Over three months I fed both my boys HYGAIN TRU GAIN and HYGAIN TRU CARE and they are now looking the best i have ever seen them! Zeus had a major stomach infection and has made a great come back and you can see from the top and bottom pictures he is no longer skinny and ribby but is now looking incredible!

Thanks again Hygain you have one happy customer 🙂

Hygain Showtorque and Tru Gain weight gain resultsI just want to share with you my success story feeding HYGAIN SHOWTORQUE and HYGAIN TRU GAIN to my TB gelding.

When I got him I tried so many feeds to try and get him to gain weight. It only took a short time to see the difference, now I will only feed Hygain. The after photo is him only 6 weeks after changing his diet.

Feeds that do wonders!

(Taylor, Nov 2016)

horse quick and effective weight gain

Hi there!
I just wanted to say a massive thank you to your company for the outstanding results in my gelding I purchased off an old friend who neglected their horse an left it in a paddock to starve for 8 months!
This is Fredo , I’ve had him for 4 months now and this is his progress. He is currently on HYGAIN TRU GAIN and Allrounder these feeds have done nothing but wonders and I will be forever thankful!

✨ Thank you

HYGAIN to the rescue!

Horse before and after photo - weight gain horses

Jacko is an ex-racehorse thoroughbred who is rising the big 8 years old. We are focusing on the eventing and show jumping area. Jacko is heading in the direction of eventing because of his bold character and lovely paces. His previous feed was a scoop of Maxi-soy and 2 handfuls of fibre ezy.

Thanks to Lydia Quay, our coach, Hygain was introduced to Jacko’s diet and now he is looking amazing! We began feeding him Hygain to see if it will increase his energy levels and weight. He is currently being fed: 1 scoop of HYGAIN FIBRESSENTIAL, 1 scoop of HYGAIN SHOWTORQUE, 1 scoop of HYGAIN TRU GAIN and 2 scoops of meadow chaff. As you can tell by the pictures Jacko’s condition has improved significantly and we are so thankful that Hygain has come to the rescue.

The effects of Tru Gain in only 7 days

(Michelle, July 2016)

Tru Gain - Horse weight gain - Before and After

I would just like to pass on my feedback for your wonderful product HYGAIN TRU GAIN.  I have a 9 month old growing Andalusian x TB colt who was starting to lose a bit of condition over the last couple of weeks due to a recent growth spurt combined with having a very light coat coverage and cooler weather.

I purchased a bag of HYGAIN TRU GAIN and within 7 days of adding 500g per day to his diet (and no other changes) his fat coverage has increased significantly and I am really pleased with the effect.  His behaviour has not changed at all either (remaining a very calm, happy and easy to handle colt).  I am sure you agree he is looking rather smart for a gangly baby 🙂

A Standy with a QH bum!

(Masha, May 2016)

Masha - Before and AfterI bought my girl off of a beautiful soul who rescued her from the dodgers, a little over a year ago. She is a 9yr old Standardbred ex pacer. She was emaciated. Her coat was dull and matted. I had to cut off more than half her mane and tail which were thin, frizzy and dread locked.
As a first time horse owner, i researched for days how to most effectively and gently better her condition. After 2 weeks on HYGAIN TRU GAIN, she was glowing! After 6 months, her tail had not only grown back but was lusciously thick and the envy of all the girls at our stables! Since improving her condition ive now played around with various Hygain products and can not speak highly enough of them.
My mares coat has completely transformed and her new backside even gets her mistaken for a quarter horse! Everyone continues to comment on how shiny she is (even now through winter) and I’ve never had issues with her being ‘hot’.
I”m confident that Hygain have a product to suite any horse and any dietary requirement/preference, and are truly invested in the well-being of our fur babies!
Thank you, Hygain!

Full of life after only one bag!

(Chelsea, Apr 2015)

hygain - Before and After weight gain horse feedVeiko is a rising 4 year old Trakehner gelding whom I recently purchased. His previous owner fed large amounts of oats/ lupins and grower and weaner pellets but I felt that he should be looking better than he was so I decided to do a bit of research on the Hygain feeds as I had heard good reviews about them.

After visiting the website and reading the different reviews and fact sheets on each feed I decided to give HYGAIN TRU GAIN and HYGAIN GROTORQUE a try. I was impressed with how fast I saw results, but what was even more surprising to me was how fast Veiko himself felt the results! He had been sluggish and uninterested in work, within a week he was more spiritedly, full of life and ready to go, his mental and physical condition visibly improving everyday  the attached photo is a before and after of only one bag of HYGAIN TRU GAIN and HYGAIN GROTORQUE being fed simultaneously.

I am very happy with Hygain feeds and won’t be using anyone else ever again, so THANK YOU!

Where other products failed, HYGAIN succeeded

(Nadine, Apr 2015)

HYGAIN Before and After - weight gain over winterNot only the feeds themselves, but the general and overall customer service from the HYGAIN team is absolutely fantastic. I am very pleased with this company and all their products!

Over the colder winter months, Mojo drops condition and A LOT of weight. I had tried other products but have found HYGAIN TRU GAIN to work well and make such a difference in such a short time. I have been very impressed with the results of using the HYGAIN TRU GAIN along side the HYGAIN HONEY B. Both feeds are of high quality and found that neither make my horse hot or fizzy. I have recommended both feeds to numerous amounts of people and will continue to use HYGAIN feeds as i have never once been disappointing. Thank you HYGAIN!

Nadine

Yes, she can look even better!

Janelle - Before and After coat shine horse feedWe feed all of our ponies Hygain and have for many years but I wanted to say how impressed I am with HYGAIN TRU GAIN   Most of our ponies are on HYGAIN ZERO but our RP Brooklyn Lodge Bumble Bee has been a much harder keeper but since starting on TRU GAIN has just blossomed.  Please see attached before photo early in the season compared to last weekend where she took out supreme champion led RPSBS show pony – Tasmanian All-Breed Championships.

Thanks for the great products!

Noticeable results in only 3 weeks

(Shari, Mar 2015)

HYGAIN - Before and After - horse diet weight gainI was seriously struggling with the condition of my 4yo part arabian mare after being broken in. I was using another feed recommended for weight gain with little to no results. After doing some research I decided to try HYGAIN SHOWTORQUEe and have not looked back! I saw noticeable results within three weeks and she did not become hot or fizzy.

I have now added HYGAIN TRU GAIN for that finishing touch, and she has never been so shiny! I am so happy I changed to Hygain feeds the quality is so high and the products actually work! The before and after photos are only 4 weeks apart and show the difference Hygain feeds have made to my horse.

From nearly dead to a beautiful shinning happy mare

(Kylie, Mar 2015)

Hygain horse feed for weight gain - Before and AfterThis is a before and after shot of our 6 year old mare we rescued.  This is after 8 weeks on Hygain.  We could see a difference within 1 week though and decided to stick to it. The coat and everything is amazing.  She was from nearly dead to a beautiful shinning happy mare.  Also her being a windsucker makes it harder but the hygain feeds are keeping her weight on and making her a very happy horse. We had her on HYGAIN TRU GAIN, HYGAIN FIBRESSENTIAL and HYGAIN HONEY B.

We have been feeding HYGAIN now for six months to all our horses and I will never look back to other feeds.

A Lifesaver

(Debbie, Mar 2015)

hygain - Before and After weight gain from thin to normaThank you, thank you, thank you HYGAIN! Not only for your wonderful feeds but also for your amazing service! Toby is a station bred stock horse, who has worked hard and faithfully all his life, nothing special, just a lovely old man who deserves a happy and healthy retirement. Sadly he didn’t cope with the latest dry spell and that was looking doubtful. I happened to be in the right place at the right time, bring him home in December last year, as you can see in an awful state.

After seeing the vet and making sure Toby was healthy (other than his poor body condition), I started looking for the right thing to feed him. Our local feed shop recommended to have a look at HYGAIN. So I got online, emailed Toby’s particulars to you and received a dietary recommendation, which I have stuck to like glue ever since. Adam Rice recommended  TRU GAIN and TRU-BREED, other than the nutritional value, I was really happy with the vitamin and mineral component, as we have oxalate pasture.  He has been on it now for a little over 2 months.  Amazing, thoughtful service. I honestly rave about you to anyone who will listen. It may be that I am being a bit sentimental, but I honestly believe you saved a life…..good job.

I thought that by contacting you, other than expressing my genuine belief in your services, maybe someone else would see it and do the same for another horse. Turning a sad story to a really happy ending. Toby’s high point is the yummy food he will be eating for the rest of his life!!!

At lightning speed to coat shine

Within days he had this beautiful coat shine.  The first photo was taken 4 month ago when I got him, he had been spelling and enjoying being a paddock pony for a few months after racing! The after picture shows him eating his TRU GAIN and HONEY B out of his Hygain feed bag

From racehorse to relaxed equestrian horse

(Sam, November 2014)

Sam - before and afterSeven weeks ago I bought a thoroughbred straight off the track. He looked like a greyhound, his coat was dull and he was absolutely crazy on his ‘race diet’! Everyone thought I was mad to take him on but there had to be a nice little horse under there somewhere, right?

I bought every feed I could think of to try and put some weight on him and he barely touched any of them (he’s really fussy eater it turns out). I stumbled upon TRU GAIN in my local feed store one day and thought “why not”. He’s nearly finished the bag now and can’t get enough of it – his bucket is licked clean and he is stacking on the weight! I couldn’t be more impressed (or relieved!).

I started adding some SHOWTORQUE to his feed as well shortly after the success with TRU GAIN, though I was a little nervous at first because some friends said it made their horses hyper. I’ve found he is calmer than ever and an absolute dream to work with (plus his coat is looking incredible!). He’s been going so well I’ve even let some of my beginner friends get on and have a walk/trot/canter/jump by themselves and he has done nothing but act like an old school master.

For a five year old thoroughbred who’d run a race not even eight weeks before (and only just brought into work!) none of us are able to believe the difference. Thank you so much to everyone at HYGAIN for making feeds that my horse loves and that actually work. Will definitely recommend you guys to everyone!

What a difference in only 3 weeks!

(Jordan, July 2014)

Jordan - Before and afterHi, just thought I’d send through the difference HYGAIN TRU GAIN and HYGAIN BALANCED has made in 3-4 weeks. This is my rising 4yro and rapidly growing, but I am so happy that every time I take his covers off he looks better and better!

He had been struggling to gain and hold condition and I was recommended HYGAIN TRU GAIN by a friend who swears by it. I am a self confessed sceptic when it comes to feeds/supplements like this and I dislike changing and adding things, but I couldn’t be happier! Nothing has changed in his diet apart from the addition of Tru Gain, and in two weeks his topline is very noticeably filling out and his ribs are beginning to cover. I also thought I’d add some to my 7yro Eventers feed to see if it did anything to him (hugely reactive to some feeds/additives). Nothing apart from his topline also improving! I am also starting to see more shine on what were very dull clipped coats.

Jazz's sad story with a happy ending

(Abbie, Dec 2013)

Jazz - Tru Gain - Before and AfterCeltic jazz (jazz) was an unsuccessful racehorse & after 3 starts for 3 dead lasts she was retired from racing in January this year. She unfortunately went to a terrible new home and was left to become completely emaciated, lice ridden/greasy heel/rain scald/untreated wire cuts etc…

She suffered from choke the day she arrived from trying to eat hay, so it took about 7-10 days to build her up to 2 hard feeds & hay as she wouldn’t eat it. Jazz is being fed a combination of HYGAIN TRU GAIN, HYGAIN SHOWTORQUE, chaff, hay and pasture. She currently does ground work/lunging with Jazz and will start back under saddle soon.

I have been using your products for years & constantly recommend them for others as I find them great for all of my horses ranging from ponies to thoroughbreds & varying ages from mares with foals through to 29yo.
What Tru Gain has done for Jazz is what has impressed us & cemented that Hygain is quality feed! Thank you!

Amazing Transformation

(Rikki, July 2013)

Rikki - Tru Breed - Before and AfterI bred this beautiful filly named Flame who was raised as a herd horse with just oaten and grass hay for additional roughage. Flame was always handled, wormed and healthy but never rugged or hard fed until I decided I wanted to show her.

I got plenty of put downs and strange looks when I said my filly was going to be shown, but I knew what lay underneath that fluff and fat belly. Flame’s parents are both true to type Halter horses and Flame is no different but just needed a helping hand to get into shape.

Flame has been on HYGAIN TRU BREED and when in show prep she also got some HYGAIN TRU GAIN. She has since been green broken and has grown again! Flame went from looking like a yearling to looking like a mature 2 year old in a short time.

The before photo was taken in September 2012 and the after photo at the Victorian Paint Horse Association State Show in May 2013 ( photos are 6 months apart she looked like this only 12 weeks down the track).

It only took one bag to transform her

(Lisa, Oct 2012)

Lisa - Tru Gain - Before and AfterMy 11yo thoroughbred gelding achieved an amazing increase in body condition and coat shine after feeding only ONE bag of HYGAIN TRU GAIN. I added half a dipper of HYGAIN TRU GAIN with some oaten chaff and my horse licks the feeder clean now!!

    Your feed HYGAIN TRU GAIN is by far, the BEST, feed I’ve ever fed my thoroughbred for weight gain. I’ve been trying to get him to gain weight for god knows how long and finally, something worked. Not only is he totally filled out in his hips, you can’t see his ribs anymore AND he coat feels like velvet. Works 100 x better then Equi-Jewel and is $15 cheaper per bag.

    Just really wanted to tell somebody how much they’ve help me. Thanks heaps 🙂

    I started using Hygain products recently and was extremely pleased with the results. My 3 year old was really struggling to gain any weight and it didn’t matter what I fed him. He was on supplements galore to try to pack it on. I put him on HYGAIN TRU GAIN and HYGAIN SHOWTORQUE and now he is gleaming, happy, healthy and energetic. Not only has this feed improved his health, weight and appearance, it has also cut out all supplements that I was previously using including biotin. Very impressed! I would recommend using Hygain products to anyone and everyone!

    My horse is a thoroughbred and quite a lean weight thoroughred bit his certainly not thin, Probably because he has been on Hygain tru gain and Hygain showtorque for nearly his whole life! He is a high level eventer and this feed keeps his coat,weight and energy outstanding throughout the months even through winter when they drop weight and grow a fluffy coat he still looks outstanding! (Even though he gets clipped) it is also very affordable and defiently worth every cent!

    I have had trouble keeping weight on my horses after moving them to somewhere cold and snowy they are not used to that so started dropping weight rather quick no matter what I fed them! Someone recommended hygain true gain. After only a week on 4 cups a day I have seen a massive difference in both horses so I will continue feeding that dosage through out winter with a mix of hygain senior and boiled barley they seem to be the feeds that work the best for my 2 young horses. Can’t recommend hygain tru gain enough! Thank you!! Oh and it smells amazing too 🙂

    Hi there!
    I just wanted to say a massive thank you to your company for the outstanding results in my gelding I purchased off an old friend who neglected their horse an left it in a paddock to starve for 8 months!
    This is Fredo , I’ve had him for 4 months now and this is his progress. He is currently on HYGAIN TRU GAIN and Allrounder these feeds have done nothing but wonders and I will be forever thankful!

    ✨ Thank you

    I would just like to pass on my feedback for your wonderful product HYGAIN TRU GAIN. I have a 9 month old growing Andalusian x TB colt who was starting to lose a bit of condition over the last couple of weeks due to a recent growth spurt combined with having a very light coat coverage and cooler weather.

    I purchased a bag of HYGAIN TRU GAIN and within 7 days of adding 500g per day to his diet (and no other changes) his fat coverage has increased significantly and I am really pleased with the effect. His behaviour has not changed at all either (remaining a very calm, happy and easy to handle colt). I am sure you agree he is looking rather smart for a gangly baby 🙂

    Wow, Hygain Trugain does work. I have a 15 year old thoroughbred who in Summer and Spring actually is on the chubby side but it’s my first year having her, and as soon as it hit April and started to get colderr she just dropped so much weight. On 21st of April I had a few comments from other horse owners where I keep her (keep in mind she was being fed every single day, I was not neglecting her). I decided to switch to Hygain Trugain because I heard that it put weight on horses. In only a month, she has gone from being very ribby with hollow hips and a dipping in neck to actually looking REALLY good – shiny, put on a lot of weight. She still has a pretty bony topline but it has improved somewhat. I wish I could upload a photo the difference is crazy, only 1 month.

    Bought a bag of tru gain was concerned about the cost and if it would really work. Well I’m amazed at the results. I cant believe how much my mare has gained in a short period of time. All my TB’s are fed hygain ice and fibressentials. Was recommened to change to showtorque (which I havent done as yet, was waiting as ive just added the trugain). Love the products and am seeing great results in short period of time.
