Aligning to nutritional recommendations that forage should form the greatest portion of the equine diet, and to the common practice of managing broodmares and youngstock at grass, Mare & Youngstock™ has been developed to balance a diet of grass and hay.
Mare & Youngstock™ should be fed to mares in the last three months of pregnancy and throughout lactation, and to youngstock from weaning to 18 months old. Feed supplements should be fed according to body weight. Introduce to the horse's diet gradually, splitting between feeds (when applicable).
Mare & Youngstock™ is a complementary feeding stuff for equine animals. Feedmark uses nothing in the formulation of this product that contravenes competition rules.
Mare & Youngstock™ provides nutrients tailored to the increased requirements of mares in the last three months of pregnancy and throughout lactation, and for youngstock from weaning until they are 18 months old (NRC, 2007). In many cases there are distinct advantages to feeding a nutrient dense supplement rather than traditional stud feeds, the most obvious being helping good doers to maintain a healthy weight during pregnancy, which can help to ensure a healthy birth and avoid excessive joint strain in mares and foals. Mare & Youngstock™ provides 24 essential vitamins and minerals in quantities that meet the recommended NRC (2007) requirements of breeding stock when fed a pasture and forage-based diet. Copper, Zinc and Manganese are included in chelated form to enhance mineral absoprtion and reduce negative interactions with other nutrients. Lysine, the first limiting amino acid, is also supplied to ensure optimum utilisation of the quality protein in Soya meal. The probiotic live yeast, Yea-Sacc®, is also included which is beneficial for young horses who often need support to build up a healthy population of microflora in the hindgut, as well as helping to ensure efficient digestion in mares. Mint and Peppermint powder are added as digestive tract soothers, and also to help stimulate appetite, which is especially useful when mares are near the end of their pregnancy. Rosehips provide joint support and antioxidants that help to neutralise free radicals.
