The Epol Stud Horse cubes are a highly palatable ration designed primarily for broodmares during pregnancy and lactation, however its composition also makes it suitable for feeding to other stud animals, providing ample nutrients for working stallions and growing young stock also.
Special attention has been given to the nutrient needs of the mare during the last 3 months of pregnancy and during lactation. During the last three months of pregnancy 60% of foetal development occurs and 40% of the foal’s skeletal structure develops in utero. Stud cubes provide micro-nutrients, such as Vitamin K, to assist in the developing skeletal structure of the foal. Advantages of feeding mares well include good foetal development and higher milk production.
For stud animals carrying a little too much condition, Stud cubes can also be fed in reduced quantities alongside our Balancers to offer flexibility in the calorie content of the diet whilst maintaining essential nutrient levels.
Feeding horses correctly requires a good eye and careful monitoring of your horse’s individual needs, condition and behaviour. We therefore suggest you contact us directly for personalised feeding advice.

The Stud cubes are designed to be fed alongside good quality hay and/ or pasture.
To ensure a healthy gut, good quality forage should be provided at 1.5% of bodyweight per day, 7.5kg for a 500kg horse.
Always ensure the minimum roughage requirement is met and then adjust the amount of feed depending on condition and workload. Meal sizes should preferably be limited to between 2 and 2.5 kg per feeding.
Total daily feed (concentrate + roughage) should be in the region of 2-3% of bodyweight depending on age, temperament and climate, and should be adjusted to suit the individual.
With this in mind and Depending on the workload, age, condition and quality of the available roughage, the average adult horse would require between 0.5% and 1.2% of body weight per day (e.g the average adult 500 kg horse will need between 2.5 and 6kg of concentrate per day depending on daily needs).
Always ensure the minimum roughage requirement is met and then adjust the amount of Stud cubes depending on need.
It is very important to ensure that your horse is fed the correct portion of food by weight, not by volume! All feeds have different densities and thus do not weigh the same. Therefore, it is very important to establish exactly what weight (kg) your scoop holds of the specific product you are feeding.
Always introduce any new feed or product over a period of 7-14days and ensure fresh water is always available.
