Heygates Horse Feeds are made using a blend of traditional raw materials and modern technology resulting in the best possible quality and value for money.
Unlike many competitors' products, Heygates coarse mixtures use traditional cooked flaked cereals. The whole grains are cleaned then cooked and rolled. This process makes the energy from the grains more easily available to the horse's digestive system and helps to make the feed non heating while still providing valuable nutrients.
Heygates horse feeds are based on fresh bran products from Heygates' own flour mills and are fortified with the ideal balance of protein, vitamins, minerals and trace elements. When the Heygates flour millers make fine bran for the horse feeds they put the wheatgerm in as well so your Heygates horse feeds are full of natural wheatgerm goodness.
liveyeastA natural live yeast is added to some of the products to aid digestion and improve diet utilisation.
