MARE'S MILK REPLACER

KEY FEATURESOptimum nutrition, 'free choice' access, supports even growth
AGE RANGEBirth to 3 months
KEY INGREDIENTSQuality milk proteins, chelated Bioplex minerals
PACK SIZE5kg, 20kg
Mare’s Milk Replacer is a complete milk substitute formulated for the orphan or rejected foal or for those foals who are, for whatever reason, not receiving sufficient milk from their dams. It contains the highest quality milk proteins, vitamins and minerals necessary for optimum growth. Being formulated to be mixed with cool tap water, Mare’s Milk Replacer is best fed from a bucket with the foal allowed access 24 hours a day. This allows the foal to drink as often as if the mare was present so that there is a natural, even flow of milk through the digestive system.
 

When made up, Mare's Milk Replacer has a tart taste which discourages the foal from drinking too much milk at any one time. It is also slightly acidic (pH5.3 + .01) to help maintain the normal pH level in the foal’s digestive system and to aid in the preservation of the milk after mixing with water. All these factors result in the foal being fed as naturally as possible with fewer digestive upsets, improved milk digestibility and progressive growth, with the added advantage of not having to hand feed the foal every few hours.

FEEDING ADVICE

  • In the case of orphan and rejected foals, it is vital to ensure they receive colostrum within the first 24 hours of life after which the foal can be introduced to Mare's Milk Replacer.
  • Initially Mare's Milk Replacer may be fed slightly warm and from a bottle to encourage consumption. Although a foal cannot be expected to drink from a bucket within the first 1 to 3 hours of separation from the dam, there is no need to continue bottle feeding and the foal can soon be easily taught to drink from a bucket.
