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

It is important to consider the following when preparing and giving Fohlenmilch:
The intake of colostrum is essential in the first hours after birth.
Fohlenmilch cannot replace colostrum.
It is required to slowly change from colostrum to Höveler Fohlenmilch.
The feeding plan is supposed to offer an orientation. The amount of Fohlenmilch to be fed has to be adapted to the individual demands of the individual foal.

Temperature to mix: 40 – 45 °C
Temperature to feed: 38 – 40 °C

Höveler terabb-FS 16 or Höveler Fohlenmüsli should be offered from the second week of life on next to the trough. The number of troughs per day is dependent on the individual condition and age of the foal. The amount of Fohlenmilch is dependent on the intake of Fohlenmüsli/Fohlenpellet from the sixth week of life on.

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