Features and Benefits

For Broodmares:

  • Growth maintains healthy and steady glucose and insulin levels in mares during pregnancy and lactation
  • Growth decreases the risk of metabolic disorders in nursing foals with lower levels of starch and sugar

 

For Growing Horses:

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