BREEDING

Breeding

A source of beta-carotene, vitamins and chelated trace elements. Contributes to the improvement of fertility in breeding stock and colostrum quality in broodmares.

INDICATIONS :

 
  • fertility disorders in mares and stallions

  • last third of the gestation period (improvement in colostrum quality)

ONE MEASURE (90 g) PROVIDES:

  • 900 mg of beta-carotene
  • 90,000 IU of vitamin A
  • 1,350 mg of vitamin E
  • 194 mg of vitamin B3
  • 648 mg of chelated* zinc
  • 270 mg of chelated* manganese
  • 135 mg de chelated* copper
  • 1.4 mg of organic selenium
  • 1.8 mg of iodine

* Amino acid chelate

Directions for use

Feed with cereals or pelleted feed. Mix well into the ration. 1 measuring cup = approximately 90 g

For ponies, divide the doses by two.

Adult Horse (500kg) Daily dose (measures/day) Recommended duration of treatment
Non-pregnant mares 1 - 1 ½ During the 6 weeks preceding service up until pregnancy diagnosis at 14 days.
Pregnant mares ½ - 1 During the 6 weeks preceding the due date of foaling and continue until pregnancy diagnosis at 14 days, or 15 days after foaling (if the mare is not returning to the stallion).
Stallions ½ - 1 During the 2 months before the first covering, and then to be continued during the entire covering season.


PRECAUTIONS :
Because of the high levels of vitamins and trace elements (including selenium) contained in this product, respect the recommendations for use.

Properties

Beta-carotene could improve mare fertility:
- as a precursor of vitamin A in the follicles, it participates in the synthesis of oestrogens and is thus favourable to good follicular growth;
- as a local antioxidant, it protects cells in the reproductive system from attack by free radicals;
- following ovulation, it assures the correct functioning of the corpus luteum within which it participates in the synthesis of progesterone. It contributes in this way to maintaining gestation.

Amongst the effects observed when supplementing with beta-carotene we can note more visible heats, a reduced number of ovarian cysts, an improved fertility level, a reduction in embryo mortality as well as a drop in the number of retained placentas.

In the stallion, beta-carotene participates (as a precursor of vitamin A) in the synthesis of testosterone. It assures good spermatozoa production and maturity. Thanks to its’ antioxidant action, it helps protect spermatozoa from attack by free radicals.

Vitamin A affects protein synthesis with consequences on epithelium integrity in the reproductive system, sexual hormone production and immunity.

Vitamin E and organic selenium reinforce the antioxidant action of beta-carotene. Furthermore, supplementing with them would increase in colostrum antibody concentration (IgG and IgM) as well as the quantity of colostrum produced, hence better transfer of immunity from the mare to the foal.

Zinc could play a part in reproduction as an essential activate of sexual hormone production enzymes, and also in its’ function of transporting vitamin A.

Supplementing with copper would improve the liberation of sexual hormones (FSH et LH) at a cerebral level (pituitary).

Manganese and vitamin B3 intervene in the production of sexual hormones.

Iodine is essential in synthesising thyroid hormones that stimulate FSH and LH production by the pituitary gland.
