Original Fohlenmilch


Original Fohlenmilch The energy drink for emergencies.

Disease or  death of a mother mare sometimes makes it necessary to artificially raise a foal. The proper use of Original Fohlenmilch can make this rearing period possible without problems.

The ingredients in Original Fohlenmilch are based on the mare‘s milk and meet the requirements of the foal with regard to energy, protein, minerals and vitamins. Special care was placed upon the choice of protein sources. Plant protein sources (e.g. soya protein) are often the cause of diarrhoea in young animals. Therefore the use of cheap protein products was deliberately dismissed and substituted by more easily digestible skimmed milk and whey powders.

Due to its overall balanced composition Original Fohlenmilch can be used as a sole feeding product during the first weeks after birth or as a supplement for those whose dams  produce insufficient milk. However, for primary immunization during the first hours after the foal‘s birth it is of utmost importance for the foal to receive either colostrum from a foster mare or conserved colostrum and/or let the vet administer gamma globulins.

Feed Recommendations

For the preparation and feeding of Original Fohlenmilch, please note the following:

The feeding of colostrum in the first few hours after birth is vital; Original Fohlenmilch cannot replace colostrum.

Slow transition from colostrum feeding to Original Fohlenmilch.

This feeding plan is an orientation; the amount fed Original Fohlenmilch has to be adapted to the individual needs of each foal.

Plenty of fresh drinking water that is not too cold should always be at the horse's disposal.
