Breeding and stud range

HAVENS horsefeed has a succesful range of products for breeding. This comprises of two products:
  • Ferto-LAC 3 marecubes: for gestating and lactating mares.
  • Opti-GROW foalcubes: a foal feed especially made for the needs of a foal in the first 18 months after birth
Gestating and lactating mares have an increased need for energy, high quality proteins and the important boneminerals calcium, phosphorus and magnesium.
Foals are born without stock of vitamin A (which has to be provided by the mares milk in the first weeks) so the mare's need for vitamine A is also increased.

HAVENS Ferto-LAC 3 special broodmare cubes offers the following advantages: 
  • Increased energy and protein level for an optimal milk production;
  • Increased level of the 3 most important amino-acids (Lysine, Methionin, Cystein); Amino acids are very important because they are the building blocks of all proteins. Proteins are needed for growth, muscle tissue and organs.
  • Increased level of the 3 bone minerals Ca., P. and Mg: for proper bone formation.;
  • Multi-Calcium-Complex: for optimal transmission of the foal's main bone minerals to support the joints and for strong and healthy bones.
  • High levels of Vitamins to support the mare’s fertility and the foals resistance and immune system;
  • High Pro-Vitamin A content: beta-carotene has a positive influence on fertility.
  • Extra copper: an essential building material for bone and cartilage repair.

EQUIFORCE Beta+ is very suitable for broodmares and active breeding stallions. This beta-carotene supplement with the addition of natural vitamin E, selenium and amino acids promotes oestrus and ovulation in mares and enhances the maintenance of a successful pregnancy. It also improves the quality and quantity of semen in studs.
If the mare is used for breeding early in the year (before the start of the grazing season), it is wise to start supplementing with the supplement from the beginning of the year for optimal preparation for the breeding season.
