Breed N Grow

Ultimate full feed pellet for broodmares, breeding stallions, weanlings and yearlings

KEY FEATURES:

  • Highly palatable pellet formula. No powders or waste. Ideal for paddock feeding.
  • Contains high quality protein from soyabean meal.
  • Added amino acids to support growth rates in young horses.
  • Enhanced level of macro and trace minerals to support bone growth and development.
  • Added silicon for improved bone density.
  • Ideal conditioning feed for stallions prior to and during the breeding season.

The birth weight and strength of the new born foal is largely determined by the quality of the mare’s nutrition. Once born, the foal must receive the best quality nutrition from the mare’s milk in order to sustain its growth and remain strong. And that’s not forgetting the mare. She needs to maintain peak nutrition in order to produce her milk and remain in condition.

Barastoc Breed N Grow is the ‘cornerstone’ feed for horse breeders. A highly palatable pellet formula, it is ideal for paddock feeding and has the advantage of no powders or waste. It contains high quality protein from soyabean meal plus added amino acids to support growth rates in young horses. There are also enhanced levels of macro and trace minerals to support bone growth and development and added silicon for improved bone density.

Barastoc Breed N Grow is also an ideal conditioning feed for stallions prior to and during the breeding season.

Calm Performer

Cool feed for horses and ponies at maintenance or in light to moderate work

KEY FEATURES:

  • Pelleted formula – every mouthful is balanaced nutrition. Stops the sifting out of important ingredients.
  • Low level starch for cooler energy.
  • Contains molasses to keep horses eating to the bottom of the bin.

Don’t risk having a horse or pony that is too “hot” for its rider. While education plays an important role in developing tractable behaviour, feed can have a significant impact as well.

As many owners know, some horses get “hot” at the very thought of food. Barastoc Calm Performer Pellets are formulated to provide the ideal source of balanced nutrition for potentially “hot” horses and ponies in light to moderate work. Being free of oats, the corresponding low level of starch provides cooler energy, reducing the risk of tension and mental instability often associated with high grain diets.

Barastoc Calm Performer contains 11% protein, a level that suits a mature working horse or pony. Dolomite is also included to provide extra magnesium.

The pelleted formula ensures that every mouthful provides balanced nutrition and stops horses from sifting out important ingredients. It also contains molasses to keep them eating right to the bottom of the bin.

Senior

Highly palatable, easy-to-digest pellet for older horses

KEY FEATURES:

  • Cooked cereals and fibre sources for improved digestibility and palatability.
  • Easily softened with water for horses with poor teeth.
  • Increased fibre content and live yeast culture for healthy gut function.
  • High quality protein from soyabean meal.
  • Fortified with natural vitamin E and other vitamins and trace minerals to compensate for soil deficiencies and compromised absorption in older horses.

When your horse has ‘put in’ for you, it’s your responsibility to ensure it has a healthy retirement.

Older horses have special nutritional needs. Their digestive efficiency is reduced so they are not able to extract as much nutritional value from their feed as they used to. This problem is compounded by teeth that may be missing or worn.

Barastoc Senior is specifically formulated with cooked cereal and fibre sources to improve digestibility and palatability in the older horse. It contains an increased level of highly digestible fibre and live yeast culture to maintain healthy gut function, and has natural vitamin E included.

To compensate for decreased absorption of protein and soil deficiencies, Barastoc Senior contains high quality protein from soyabean meal and is fortified with vitamins and trace minerals. And for increased palatability it also contains molasses.

Even horses with little or no grinding surface on their teeth can be fed Barastoc Senior, as the pellets are easily softened with water to form mash.

Hard working horses have special nutritional requirements. To keep them fit and healthy you need a feed that will satisfy their complex diet needs, but in a palatable, easy-to-use form.

Barastoc Workhorse is a muesli-style feed containing oats and corn that provides the high concentration of energy a working horse needs – in a form that is safe and easily digested.

The carefully blended package of processed ingredients provides protein at 11%, a level that suits a mature horse while avoiding the mental tenseness that often accompanies higher protein rations.

Barastoc Workhorse is formulated with increased mineral levels to compensate for sweat losses. It comes in a pelletised form to eliminate fines and also contains molasses for improved palatability.
