How can Colostrum help at a breeding or training facility?
Young thoroughbreds and other performance horses face a range of challenges earlier in life than many ordinary weanlings and yearlings. Top breeding facilities are finding that bovine colostrum can serve more than one purpose in supporting the overall health and fitness of young horses bound for sale.
Colostrum is currently in use at several facilities working to develop weanlings and yearlings for sale. Farm managers are finding that Re-Borne can:
- Effectively prevent foal scours if given from birth
- Help support transition weanlings from nursing to feedbox more easily
- Maintain immune function as weanlings move into pasture and stall environments
- Ease the stress of preparation for yearling sales
- Support a healthy appetite and provide lean muscle mass for the yearling without the use of steroids
Additionally, professional thoroughbred, show, dressage and other performance horse trainers are finding colostrum useful in supporting immune, stress, appetite and hair coat issues at the racetrack or in the show ring. Colostrum can be especially effective in providing nutrients for a healthy body, helps reduce oxidative stress, supporting healthy skin and coat, and helping performance horses recover more quickly during strenuous training and competition.
