For Broodmares:

  • Growth decreases the risk of metabolic disorders in nursing foals with reduced starch and sugar

 

For Growing Horses:

  • Growth promotes steady growth using a combination of fat and carbohydrates for calories
  • Growth support consistent glucose and insulin levels, reducing a foal's risk for insulin dysregulation
  • Growth includes ideal levels of the amino acids lysine, methionine and threonine to support a healthy growth rate
