Frequently asked questions

How to increase the fertility of the mare?

To increase the fertility of the mare, a balanced and optimized feeding is requested.

The risk of a non-disposal of the afterbirth increases in case of deficiency of magnesium in the diet. From research on roughage we know, that the energy content is lower than the years before. Also the level of minerals is lower than expected. In most cases calcium and phosphorus are covered in combination with additional feed, but magnesium is not covered. This is the reason for the high magnesium content in Pavo Podo Lac.

Vitamin E (and Selenium)
Both are very important for a good fertility. A high level of vitamin E in the fodder is necessary for a good detachment of the placenta.

Increase fertility:
Be sure that all the mares which need to get pregnant get as much (day-) light as possible. Keep on the lights in the stable until 11 p.m. 
Give the mare enough possibility to move so that the uterus can clean itself. Take care of a healthy and balanced diet. Create a clean, quiet and stressless atmosphere in the stable.
