Baileys Horse Feeds has produced a new booklet aimed at anyone breeding foals and raising youngstock. Feeding Foals and Weanlings is a 20-page booklet containing practical information based on the latest American research and focusing on the specific requirements of foals and growing youngstock, potential developmental problems and how products from Baileys really can help.

The value of forage, the importance of minerals and monitoring the growth rate of foals is covered and there is a section devoted to the extensive range of services offered in addition to a wide range of products.

How to cope with an orphan or rejected foal is a topic that is covered in depth. This can be an extremely distressing time for any breeder, but there is comprehensive management advice and proven products that will ensure the foal has a strong and healthy start in life.

Nutrition plays a vital role in the success of any breeding programme and Baileys take pride in the personal service that is available. Baileys has extensive experience working with both stud managers and vets in a range of situations from developing complete feeding programmes to nutritional solutions for individual horses.

If you would like a copy of this booklet please contact Baileys on 01371 850247 or e-mail info@baileyshorsefeeds.co.uk.
