St. Hippolyt Equilac Pellets
When the mare and foal are well after the birth and the foal finds its way to the milk source on shaky legs, the breeder is very relieved and happy. By properly feeding the mare during pregnancy and lactation, we can create the decisive basis for transforming the little bearer of hope into a healthy sport and leisure companion.
- Well-balanced protein-energy ratio
- With herbs, seaweed, oils and oil fruits
- Rich in essential amino acids
- Optimal proportion of trace elementsFEED FERTILITY
Three months before the planned mating date, the ration should have a high content of vital substances but moderate energy value. Additional doses of Beta-Carotene-Mare-Y-Mix, trace elements (“MicroVital”) and nucleotides (“High Performer”) improve the ability to conceptualize. After the successful occupancy, attention must still be paid to micronutrient-rich but energy-adapted feeding. At the beginning of the last third of pregnancy, you should switch to Equilac broodmare feed.NUTRIENTS FOR TWO
The proven Equilac broodmare feed was developed on the basis of many years of experience in thoroughbred breeding. It is suitable for all horse breeds. Equilac contains particularly high-quality proteins. In addition to an optimal protein-energy ratio, all minerals, trace elements and vitamins are combined in a needs-based ratio that the growing foal needs for healthy development. Brewer’s yeast, seedlings, numerous maritime components and other suppliers of vital substances complete the recipe.
As a supplement to the daily basic diet of roughage and/or pasture grass, we recommend slowly replacing the current concentrate feed with Equilac from the 8th month of gestation.
9th to 11th month of gestation:
Approximately 400-500 g per 100 kg body weight per day.
Divide this total amount over several feedings per day.
For mares which have difficulties in maintaining their weight or losing it, increase the quantity by approx. 10-15 %. Oats can also be fed additionally if necessary.
For mares which are fattening or becoming too heavy, reduce the quantity by approx. 10-15 %.
1st-3rd month of lactation:
Increase Equilac to 600 g per 100 kg body weight per day, as the highest milk yield is expected around the 2nd month of lactation.
From the 5th month of lactation onwards:
Phase out Equilac.
Stop feeding the broodmare when the foal is weaned.
1 litre corresponds to approximately 750 g of Equilac Classic.
Due to the higher content of vitamins and trace elements compared to complete feed, this supplementary feed may only be given to horses up to 33.3% of the daily ration (incl. hay).
