About the webinar:

Correct nutrition is important throughout pregnancy to support both the mare and the developing foal.  The nutritional requirements of the mare change during lactation and, while the foal is initially reliant on the dam’s milk, supporting nutrition is key to encouraging even growth rates and preparing for weaning.

Learning Objectives:

  • How correct nutrition for the mare, is important from conception to support placental, uterine and mammary development, as well as that of the foetus.
  • The influence of the mare’s nutrition on milk quality and production and the subsequent development of the suckling foal.
  • Nutritional options for suckling foals and the importance of supporting even growth rates.
  • Nutritional preparation for weaning for both mare and foal.
  • What to feed mother and foal after weaning.
