Influencing Pregnancy Rate

With a Natural Diet and Targeted Supplementation

A horse's intake of vital nutrients, including omega-3 fatty acids, amino acids, antioxidants, vitamins and trace minerals, has been shown to play a significant role in cellular health for improved outcomes, including reproductive success.

STUDY: A group of sub-fertile mares ranging in age from 6 to 25 years were fed a hay-based ration and a commercial grain-based feed (control diet), then were changed to a ration of hay and a comprehensive wellness formula for 8 to 16 weeks.

OUTCOME: Eggs were harvested when the mares were on the control diet and the supplemented diet and embryos were implanted into recipient mares. Pregnancy rates in mares on the supplemented diet improved from 23 percent to 51 percent, a 129 percent increase.

Supporting Precious Cargo

“A healthy mare is more likely to conceive, remain healthy through gestation and produce a well-developed foal. Just like in human pregnancy, the mare is the sole source of nourishment for her foal. When we feed the broodmare, we are feeding the foal.”
— Emily Smith, MS. Platinum Performance®

Health Tip

Providing omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, vitamins and both macro and trace minerals can help support not only the fertility of the mare but also the health of the foal she is carrying while in utero and after birth. In addition, nourishing the gut with prebiotics, probiotics and glutamine can help support immune health and proper gut function before breeding, during gestation and after foaling.
