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.
HYGAIN® STUDTORQUE® should be introduced to your horse’s diet gradually. Feeding amount may be influenced by age, breed, gestation and lactation status, work load, desired body condition, pasture/hay quality and availability and climate. HYGAIN® STUDTORQUE® should be fed in conjunction with quality pasture, hay and or chaff.
Care should be taken to match feed intake to dietary requirements particularly for growing horses as excess energy may increase the incidence of developmental orthopaedic diseases. Should this occur, remove HYGAIN® STUDTORQUE® and any grain from the diet and change to a low starch feed such as HYGAIN® GROTORQUE® or HYGAIN® BALANCED® to maintain essential nutrient levels in the diet. Seek professional advice. Where pasture quality and availability is sufficient to maintain body condition, HYGAIN® recommends the use of HYGAIN® GROTORQUE® or HYGAIN® BALANCED® as a supplementary source of protein, minerals and vitamins.
Foals may be introduced to STUDTORQUE® by ‘creep feeding’ from 2-3 weeks of age.
STUDTORQUE® contains the nutrients necessary to maximise milk quality and lactation duration.

Weight per HYGAIN dipper (2ltr)
- Introduce HYGAIN® STUDTORQUE® to your horse’s diet gradually over a 7-14 day period.
- Feed by weight and not by volume.
- Feed a minimum of 1% of your horse’s body weight daily as roughage.
- Horses have a small stomach, so feed little and often.
- Ensure horses have access to clean water.
- Do not add additional vitamins or minerals unless directed by a veterinarian or nutritionist.
