Feeding Excellence in Equine Nutrition At GAIN Equine Nutrition we take great care and attention in formulating and producing the best horse feed for every horse. We constantly strive for highest quality standards in everything we do, from sourcing quality ingredients to the training and development of our expert team. We are a passionate leader, combining our heritage, expertise and strength to ensure your horse consistently receives the very best nutrition.

Our Raw Materials

Our Balanced Formulations

We are committed to sourcing only the best raw materials for our equine feeds. Our dedicated ‘Supplier Assurance Programme’ and ‘Agronomy Programme’ ensure that we use only the finest ingredients. Our cereal specialists monitor the crops from when they are first sown right through to harvest. We closely evaluate each ingredient and only those that meet our strict criteria are used in our formulations. Our oats and cereals are thoroughly screened and cleaned on entry to our processing facility. Then they are moistened, toasted, rolled and pressure cooked at specific temperatures, all to achieve the correct moisture and digestibility level.

Our expert team of nutritionists formulate our feeds to suit the digestive system of the horse and to ensure maximum absorption. Our feeds are formulated to ensure that horses with different requirements and life stages are catered for. Our unique formulations contain Alltech’s nutritionally advanced vitamins and minerals; Bioplex® and Sel-Plex®. These vitamins and minerals work in harmony with the horse to optimise digestion and nutrient uptake.

Our Feed Safety and Quality Management Program

Our Production Process

Our Nutra Lock Guarantee

Our Expertise

We operate a robust feed safety model based on scientific HACCP based risk assessment. GAIN Equine Nutrition products are manufactured in our licensed premises using quality assured ingredients under strictly controlled production conditions and conforms to the requirements of EU and Irish legislation governing the manufacture of animal feeding stuffs. This system is benchmarked against industry leading practices and certified independently to UFAS (Universal Feed Assurance Scheme) and BETA NOPS Certifications.

The raw materials are weighed out according to the formulation, then mixed together and dry-milled. Liquid ingredients are then mixed-in prior to hightemperature steam-conditioning in preparation for extrusion through the pelleting press.This precisely controlled process, involving heat and pressure, enhances the feed’s nutritional value and palatability, and destroys natural toxins, moulds and bacterial pathogens. The pellets are then cooled, and finally screened prior to packing to produce a dust-free product.

We have the capability to pack and seal our products using our Nutra Lock guarantee to ensure the highest quality feed and goodness is delivered to you and your horse as fresh as the day it was packed.

Our expert team of nutritionists and business managers are dedicated to developing new equine nutritional solutions. We work closely with universities and industry bodies to bring the latest in research, technology and world leading testing methodologies into our feeds. Ultimately the customer’s needs are at the centre of everything we do.

Our Nutra Lock bags are made from a strong foil material and when used in conjunction with our modified atmospheric packaging process protects the safety and quality of the feed throughout its shelf life. Packed in this way our feed has a shelf life of up to twelve months

“Our expertise in nutrition, focused ingredient selection and quality-led production provides for a winning combination and ensures the GAIN Equine Nutrition range is fit for the best horses in the world.” Chris Miller B.Agr.Sc. Head of Nutrition, GAIN Equine Nutrition

GAIN & Alltech

Our Partners

We incorporate Alltech’s nutritionally advanced technologies in many of our our performance horse feeds.

Partnerships play an important role in the success of GAIN Equine Nutrition. Along with our on-going relationships with customers and suppliers, we are committed to supporting the equine industry through a number of key partnerships.

The Alltech equine solutions include Bioplex® copper, zinc and manganese, and Sel-Plex® organic selenium. These products work in harmony with the horse to optimise digestive health and nutrient uptake as well as providing key minerals in their most bio-available form for better absorption and utilisation by the horse.

Designed to closely match the natural trace elements in forages and grains, Bioplex® minerals nutritionally ‘fit’ animal metabolism to become more absorbable during digestion and more readily available to meet physiological demands in organs and tissues.

Benefits of Bioplex® Mineral Nutrition • Allows the horse to cope with oxidative stress • Maintains keratin structure for quality hoof horn • Helps build skeletal tissue in foals • Supports mare milk quality, which in turn promotes healthy growth in young foals

Sel-Plex® offers selenium to horses in its natural form. Horses need selenium to support immune response and reproductive function, support exercise tolerance and for overall health. Selenium is added to equine feeds and supplements because their components typically provide inadequate levels. Sel-Plex® maintains high selenium status to meet performance horse demands while preserving a healthy immune response.

Benefits of Sel-Plex® • Healthy antioxidant status • Supports production of quality colostrum

We have a long standing relationship with the IHWT and we are delighted to continue our support towards such a worthy charity. The IHWT do incredible work in the rehabilitation and rehoming of both horses and ponies and we are very happy that we can offer them nutritional support to help them enrich the lives of these horses and ponies. The Irish Horse Welfare Trust was established in 1999 to help the plight of horses in Ireland. They rescue, rehabilitate and rehome horses that have been abandoned, neglected or ill-treated. GAIN Equine Nutrition have extended their partnership with The Curragh racecourse to create a three race series known as the ‘Champion Collection’ series. The three part series acts as a stepping-stone for two-year-old horses graduating from listed (First Flier) through to Group 3 (Marble Hill Stakes) up to Group 2, which is our prestigious Railway Stakes race that takes place on Dubai Duty Free Irish Derby Day. Many of our customers are deeply involved in both the racing and bloodstock industries and we see this collaboration as a unique opportunity to underpin our commitment to these sectors.

GAIN Equine Nutrition are delighted to support the eventing sector through our partnership with Camphire International, which is a highly competitive 3 star event that attracts top class international event riders to the beautiful setting along the Blackwater River in West Waterford.

Point to Points are the heartbeat of the Irish National Hunt racing industry. We are delighted to be involved at the grass roots level of this important sector. For the last three decades we have sponsored the GAIN Mares Series. This Series covers 20 legs across six counties with the much coveted final taking place in Ballynoe in the spring. Along with our partner Alltech, we continue to support show jumping sector through our support of the National Grand Prix Series. This series runs across Ireland throughout the summer months and is the cornerstone of the national calendar. With a lucrative prize fund of over €80,000, it attracts top quality horses competing at 1.40m level.

Our Stud Range The GAIN Stud Range provides a specific feed for all stages of reproduction, lactation and growth. This range is designed to cater for foals, weanlings, yearlings, mares and stallions and is scientifically formulated to meet their critical nutrient requirements at various stages. Precise feeding of broodmares during gestation and lactation and then of youngstock during growth and development is vital in order to maintain optimal growth, health and well-being.

Key Requirements For Breeding Stock High quality protein is necessary to ensure optimal skeletal growth and development throughout gestation, as well as ensuring youngstock have the building blocks for good bone and muscle development during their early life.

Bio-available trace minerals maximise availability to the horse and are pivotal in ensuring normal bone growth and development.

Digestible energy sources ensure that the horse’s requirements are easily met during stages of the life-cycle where there is a large demand on the body’s energy reserves, such as during early lactation for the mare, weaning for foals and the breeding season for stallions.

High levels of Vitamin E nutritionally support the reproductive system.

A choice of more concentrated feeds is essential when low intakes are required such as for an overweight mare, active breeding stallions and overtopped youngstock.

Good levels of biotin, methionine and Zinc are necessary to nutritionally maintain healthy hoof growth.

High fibre and oil levels are necessary to maintain a healthy digestive system and keep the horse’s coat in good condition.

Proviox a natural plant antioxidant, is important for supporting Vitamin E utilisation.

Nutrient Summary Table

Recommended Feeding Practices

Sport & Leisure Range

Feed by weight and not by volume.

Feed good quality forage free from dust and mould.

Split daily feed into smaller meals and feed at the same time each day.

Adjust quantities fed according to bodyweight, workload and temperament.

Feed at least 1% bodyweight of forage (in dry matter) per day, i.e. 5kg hay (dry matter) for a 500kg horse or provide access to pasture.

Make any changes to ration over 5 - 7 days to reduce the risk of digestive upset.

Do not add further vitamin and mineral supplements unless under professional guidance.

Feed extra electrolytes as required.
