MARE AND FOAL IN PERFECT HEALTH DURING GESTATION, LACTATION AND GROWTH
Cavalor® Probreed is rich in essential amino acids necessary for the growth and optimal development of unborn foals in utero and during their first year. It contains the highest quality vitamins, minerals and trace elements in their most bio-available forms. It contains OPTI GROWTH, a combination of elements to provide maximum bone support and tendon and joint development for unborn foals and during the foal’s first year. Mares in the last three months of gestation, lactating mares and young foals (up-to-12 months) have an increased need for the top-quality ingredients provided. Cavalor® Probreed is a key component for successful breeding as it ensures ideal conditions for healthy and strong foals.
TIP: If ProBreed is unavailable, substitute with Strucomix Senior.
DESIGNED FOR THE LAST MONTHS OF GESTATION AND DURING LACTATION
ProBreed provides the optimal quantity, quality and ratio of important macro and micronutrients including calcium, phosphorous, copper, zinc and manganese. With young horses it is essential that their growth curve is steady – not too fast, not too slow. During growth, bone and cartilage are vulnerable as they are in process of making new tissue (weaker) and remodeling (e.g. growth plates closing etc) and both to much and to little nutrients can impact proper development.
COPPER, ZINC, MANGANESE
Copper, zinc and manganese have long been known for their critical role in the diets of broodmares and young horses. Copper plays a role in cartilage and bone metabolism and is involved in hemoglobin formation and in nerve conductivity and coordination. Zinc deficiency can result in reduced insulin levels along with increased insulin resistance. Zinc deficiency can also inhibit cartilage growth.
RICH IN PROTEIN
ProBreed is a protein rich formula to help support the growth of the foal during the mare’s pregnancy and during its first year of life. The research indicates that protein intake can be maximized during the foal’s first year of life to support proper growth, but then should be reduced during years 1-3 to support slow, steady growth. During the mare’s pregnancy and the foal’s first year, sufficient high quality amino acids benefit the horse’s digestive system, growth, muscle building and overall health, allowing the foal to grow at a safe and steady rate.COMPOSITION Wheat Bran, Barley Flakes, Alfalfa, Oats, Expanded Barley, Expanded Maize, Sunflower Seed Feed, Maize Bran, Cane Molasses, Linseed, Palm Kernel Expeller, Toasted Soya Beans, Soya Feed, Wheat Gluten Feed, Barley, Soya Oil, Sodium Chloride, Broken Oil Seeds, Calcium Carbonate, Soya Bean Hulls, Spelt Bran, Palm Oil, Maize Gluten Feed Additional information: Feed Detail Sheet (pdf)
