Prep Mix

KEY FEATURESNon-heating, oat-free, promotes condition & supports growth
AGE RANGEFoals from 3 months on, growing youngstock
KEY INGREDIENTSMicronised cereals, soya oil, chelated Bioplex minerals
Prep Mix has been specifically developed for growing foals and youngstock which are being prepared for the sales or show ring. It offers a highly palatable all-in-one solution to promoting superb condition, muscle tone and top line whilst providing all the essential nutrients to support growth. The mix is oat-free with a super fibres and oil for slow release energy with the balance of Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids helping to bring a head-turning shine to the coat. The mix is nutrient dense so a smaller volume delivers the required energy and supporting nutrients without the risk of overloading the digestive system. Small frequent, digestible meals are key to reducing excessive glycaemic response and avoiding starch overload.
 
Being non-heating and highly digestible, Prep Mix helps avoid exacerbating excitable temperaments and contains Yea Sacc® to stimulate fibre digesting bacteria and promote overall gut health. This is particularly beneficial at times of stress such as weaning and travelling as well as attending shows and sales. Like other products in Baileys Stud Range, Prep Mix can, where necessary, be fed in reduced quantities alongside Stud Balancer to cut down the overall calorie content of the diet whilst maintaining essential nutrient levels.

Feeding Recommendations
  • The following table suggests quantities of Prep Mix to be fed in pounds and kilogrammes per day when feeding ad lib good quality forage.
  • Quantities are based on the “anticipated mature bodyweight” of the youngster or actual bodyweight of the adult horse.  The actual/estimated bodyweights of a youngster’s dam and/or sire are a good basis from which to estimate the “anticipated mature bodyweight” ie. the bodyweight you believe the youngster will attain as an adult.

FEEDING ADVICE

  • To reduce calorie intake whilst maintaining essential nutrient levels, Prep Mix may be fed at less than the recommended levels and the diet topped up with Stud balancer.  Every 1.4kg/3lb of Prep Mix removed from the diet should be replaced with 0.45kg/1lb (two coffee mugs) of Stud Balancer.
  • Recommended feeding levels in the table assume average to good quality hay/haylage is fed to appetite.
  • Horses with access to quality grazing can have levels reduced by 0.7kg (11/2lbs) a day.
