TRM have formulated this unique product, which is designed exclusively for breeders, to help condition their mares for the winter breeding season. Important research has highlighted the positive effect that Beta Carotene has on the fertility process of mares. There is an increase in demand for Folic Acid during pregnancy. Vitamin E is fundamental to ensure fertility in the mare.
When Beta Carotene is absorbed intact it is transported to the yellow body in the ovaries. The Corpus Luteum (yellow body) plays an important role in controlling healthy oestrus in the mare. Beta Carotene is an essential nutrient, required by the mare for production of the pregnancy hormone – progesterone.
Folic Acid is one of the B complex vitamins. Research has shown that deficiencies of this vitamin occur in stabled horses, with little or no access to fresh grass. There is an increase in demand for Folic Acid during pregnancy.
Vitamin E is fundamental to ensure fertility in the mare. Vitamin E deficiencies in the mare can result in deficiencies in the foal.
TRM have developed a unique product, that will supply these essential vitamins at the critical time. If deficiencies of these vitamins are allowed, the following can occur
- Silent Oestrus
- Reduced Fertility
Instructions for Proper Use:
- All broodmares: Feed 50g (1 heaped scoop) per day. Commence feeding 6 weeks prior to breeding season and continue thereafter, until completion of the first three months of pregnancy.
