“I've relied on nutrition as an important tool for quite a while. We're seeing benefits — whether that be sperm motility, mares breeding back easier, or getting bred and not having a lot of fluid post breeding.”
— Charlie Scoggin, DVM, MS, DACT, Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital

Nutritional Support For Broodmares, Foals and Stallions

Nutrient Highlight: Omega-3 Fatty Acids

Omega-3 fatty acids play a significant role in equine nutrition due to their part in multiple applications including support for bone growth, reproduction and fertility.

  • Foals: For growing babies, omega-3 fatty acids are important to support normal bone mineral development.
  • Broodmares: Omega-3 fatty acids are important for pregnant mares to support uterine health, colostrum quality and maintain passive transfer of antibodies to foals.
  • Stallions: The quality of a stallion's semen plays a major role in fertility and depends on the dietary intake and incorporation of omega-3 fatty acids, particularly DHA, into the sperm plasma membrane as semen consists of significant amounts of fatty acids.
