KEY INGREDIENTSMicronised wheat, soya oil, Bioplex minerals
Stud Cubes are popular among breeders, especially those who have larger groups of mares or youngstock, as they are cost effective and can easily be feed on the ground. They are also useful for those horses with a limited appetite as their energy density means that a smaller volume will deliver the required energy and supporting nutrients whilst reducing the risk of overloading the horse’s digestive system. Small frequent, digestible meals are key to reducing excessive glycaemic response and avoiding starch overload. 

Barley-free, Stud Cubes are non-heating and a lower starch alternative to Stud Mix so are the preferred choice for horses with a tendency to excitability. They are highly digestible and particularly useful for promoting condition whilst continuing to support the increased nutritional demands of breeding stock and growing youngsters. The vitamin and mineral profile is similar to that of Stud Mix and Stud Cubes can also be fed in reduced quantities alongside Stud Balancer to offer flexibility in the calorie content of the diet whilst maintaining essential nutrient levels. 

 
Feeding Recommendations
  • The following table suggests quantities of Stud Cubes 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

  • The table left is designed as a basic guide and quantities should be adjusted according to individual requirements. 
  • Introduce foals to Stud Cubes from 3 months of age and reduce milk based creep feed gradually.
  • For those mares or youngstock carrying a little too much condition, the quantity of Stud Cubes fed can be reduced and Stud Balancer added to maintain essential nutrient levels. Every 1.4kg/3lb of Stud Cubes removed from the diet should be replaced with 0.45kg/1lb (two coffee mugs) of Stud Balancer.
