Pelleted broodmare’s feed during gestation and lactation.
Equilac is an approved broodmare feed, developed on the basis of long-years experiences in thoroughbred breeding.
The benefits of an effective feeding management
Approx. three months before the mating, the mare’s diet should contain high-quality vital nutrients, however, the energy supply should be moderate. Supplements with “St. Hippolyt’s ß-Carotene and Garlic” and trace elements (for example MicroVital) enhance her potential to conceive. It is recommended to then continue feeding energy-adapted rations with a well-balanced content in high-quality micronutrients.
St. Hippolyt’s Equilac contains particularly high-quality protein. With its carefully chosen range of raw ingredients and a combination of different protein and energy-carrying components, these nutritional synergies create a well-balanced protein-energy-ratio. All minerals, trace elements and vitamins meet the nutritional requirements. Equilac distinguishes itself through the well-balanced trace element-ratio. Brewer’s yeast, sprouts, a range of ocean-derived components and other substances rich in vital nutrients sustainably complete the formula.

From the 8th month of pregnancy, gradually start to replace the concentrated feed with Equilac. From the 9th to 11th month of pregnancy approx. 400 – 500 g Equilac per kg 100 body weight per day. The total quantity per day should be offered in different rations. For hard resp. easy keepers, the ration should be adjusted by 10 – 15% upwards or downwards. Oats can be fed in addition. Equilac is recommended as only feed for special breeds, ponies and easy keepers. From the 1st to 3rd month of lactation: Gradually increase Equilac to max. 600 g per 100 kg body weight, because the third month of lactation will be the peak of the milk production. From the 5th month of lactation: Gradually reduce Equilac to finally continue with the usual concentrated feed on it's own.
