Keyflow Nurture® PRO Pre-digested Stud Balancer has been formulated through collaboration by world class equine stud nutritionists as a nutrient dense ration designed to support and balance the diet of stud horses kept at grass (stallions, mares and foals and youngstock). It can also be fed to underpin and enhance existing Keyflow rations of high performance horses.
Nurture® PRO is concentrated as well as being wet-steam extruded – making it a highly digestible (over 90% in the small intestine), low-rate feeding solution that ensures that stud horses’ increased daily nutritional requirements are met whilst being highly sympathetic and acceptable to the equine digestive system.
We’ve added high levels of DHA long chain omega 3 fatty acids, research proven to support semen motility, mare postpartum recovery as well as foal development and early feeding behaviours (including faster uptake and more prolonged colostrum feeding immediately after birth). This algal sourced long chain fatty acid is highly transferable through the milk, benefiting the mare, the foal in-utero and once born, then ongoing in the feed ration.
Nurture® PRO includes EQ-Amino Pack™ – a unique and advanced protein profile matched the composition of equine soft tissue and bone – supporting lean, even, effective musculoskeletal growth and development.
This feed is also ideal and able to be fed to performance horses who are in need of a high quality protein and nutrient rich addition to their diet.
Nurture PRO® is made up of palatable, easy to eat nuggets which horses can easily pick up off the ground when dropped. These Nurture® PRO nuggets can be fed on top of hay, off dry ground or fed in traditional paddock feed bowls and troughs.
DAILY FEED (GUIDE ONLY)
DRY OR IN-FOAL MARES, FOALS, WEANLINGS, 2YOs, STALLIONS
– 150g – 200g per 100kg of bodyweight
– 100-250g per 100kg of bodyweight
ADDED TO EXISTING KEYFLOW RATIONS
– 50-200g per 100kg of bodyweight
Feed together with roughage (hay, chaff, chop, other forage or pasture). Where roughage is fed it should be offered at between 1 to 2% of bodyweight daily.
Introduce Nurture PRO into the diet gradually over a minimum of 7 days – any dietary changes should be made gradually.
