Nutrition to Support Mares and Stallions

Supporting Reproductive Success

Nutritional Support for Mares, Stallions & Developing Foals

Nutrition plays a pivotal role in fertility and subsequent reproduction. For stallions, supplementation with omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants can help maintain a healthy sperm count, support the motility of available sperm and maintain the health and viability of cooled or frozen semen. For broodmares, nutrition has been shown to play a significant role in increasing pregnancy rates and influencing the health of the mare and proper development of the foal in utero and after birth. Early supplementation of young horses can support proper bone formation, connective tissue health and provide the building blocks for overall long-term health.

Influencing Pregnancy Rate

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 E. Carnevale et al, CSU Research 2016.

Study
A group of sub-fertile mares ranging in age from 6-25 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 8-16 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 on the supplemented diet improved from 23% to 51%, a 129% increase.

“I’ve relied on nutrition as an important tool for quite a while. We’re seeing benefits, whether that be sperm motility, mares breeding back easier or getting bred and not having a lot of fluid post breeding.”
— Dr. Charlie Scoggin Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital
