Broodmare and stallion fertility
ß-carotene is not only a precursor for vitamin A but also is directly implicated in the biosynthesis of progesterone, a
hormone central to sperm quality and viability of the stallion as well as all of the different reproductive stages of the
broodmare. ß-carotene is involved in follicule maturation, heat cycle, conception and maintenance of pregnancy.
ß-CAROTIN supplies on a daily basis (standard sized horse), 500 mg ß-carotene, 10,000 IU vitamin A, 250mg vitamin
E as well as unsaturated fatty acids (Omega 3 particularly) which play a vital role in the fertility of mares and stallions.
ß-CAROTIN use is recommended when the pasture/roughage is less rich in ß-carotene, notably from January to May
as well as during the stud season:
• Stallions : when the covering vigour and sperm quality are essential factors
• Broodmares: when the heat quality, viable pregnancies and colostrum quality are the advantages particularly
Administration duration :
• Begin administration 2 months before the covering season and continue during
the covering season (stallions) or for the duration of gestation (broodmares)
Mares: 2 scoops (25 g per scoop) per day
Stallions: 1 to 2 scoops (25 g per scoop) per day
• 3 kg bucket with measuring scoop
