Nurture Pre-digested Stud Feed has been scientifically formulated by world class equine stud nutritionists to an uncompromising specification. The concentrated high fibre nuggets are ideal for breeding stock who require high level support for musculature and skeletal development and growth.
Nurture contains the long chain omega 3 fatty acid DHA which has been shown to support semen motility, mare postpartum recovery as well as foal development and behaviours.
The unique protein sources used in Nurture (EQ Amino Pack) are of the highest quality with an amino acid profile carefully matched to that of the equine – supporting even, optimal growth and development.
Presented in larger high-fibre, steam extruded nuggets, Nurture is particularly easy to chew and digest (including for foals) making it easy to pick up when dropped, or if being fed over hay in the field.
Nurture is molasses free but highly palatable whilst remaining very low in sugar and starch for consistent growth rates.
