Why Micronize

Micronizing is a “Short Time, High Temperature” patented process using the grains moisture and infrared heat to achieve conditions essential for the optimal cooking of starch and starch gelatinisation. During processing the grain becomes soft and pliable, causing the reconfiguration of the starch structure (gelatinisation). Immediate flaking fully gelatinises the starches so as to significantly enhance the digestibility and nutritional value of the feed.

The small intestine is the epicentre of nutrient digestion in the horse. Vitamins, minerals, fats, protein and starch are readily absorbed in the small intestine. Research shows that feed digested in the small intestine significantly increases the rate of glucose (energy) absorption. Micronizing lupins improves feed efficiency and digestibility and eliminates anti nutritional factors which can have a detrimental affect on amino acid availability limiting growth and development, appetite and the general health and well being of the horse.

MICRLUPINS® transfer the site of digestion back to the small intestine improving feed efficiency and reducing the burden on the hind gut resulting in fewer incidences of dietary induced problems such as colic, acidosis, laminitis, loss of appetite, nervousness, fatigue and reduced performance.

HYGAIN® MICRONIZED feeds and MICRGRAIN’S® provide nutritional benefits for all classes of horses.

Feeding Rates

MICRLUPIN flakes can be fed on their own or mixed with other grains such as MICRBARLEY, MICRMAIZE and or oats to meet dietary requirements or used as a top up to premixed, pelleted or extruded feeds and should be fed with a minimum of 1% of body weight as fibre such as quality pasture/ hay and or chaff.

Feeding amount may be influenced by age, breed, desired body condition, exercise intensity, gestation and lactation status, pasture/hay quality and availability and climate. Care should be taken to match feed intake to dietary requirements. Reduce grain intake on rest days, if horses gain weight and / or training regime is interrupted.
