Baileys Bsb Stud Balancer 20kg
Broodmares, stallions and youngstock, especially those that hold weight easily
Breeding stock requiring nutritional support without the energy of a mix or cube
Those not requiring the full recommended amount of a stud mix or cube
This “flagship” of the Baileys Stud Range is scientifically formulated to provide essential nutritional support for all types of breeding and youngstock as well as performance horses at rest or in work. The quality protein it contains supplies key essential amino acids, which are important for muscle and tissue development, and helps encourage steady even growth rates without promoting excessive weight gain. Its balance of vitamins, minerals and trace elements, including chelated (Bioplex ® )minerals, has been specifically developed to support correct skeletal development and tissue integrity as well as the immune system and general well-being. The blend Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids from linseed and soya oil are essential for tissue integrity and help promote healthy skin and coat.
With minimal starch and calorie levels, Stud Balancer is perfect alongside forage for those who hold condition well or can be fed in conjunction with other compound feeds, or straights, where additional energy for condition or performance is required. Small frequent, digestible meals are key to reducing excessive glycaemic response and avoiding starch overload, which can be associated with uneven growth rates. The nutrient density of Stud Balancer means that only small volumes are required, helping keep meals sizes down and also benefiting those with reduced appetite. Yea-Sacc ® yeast culture is included, to stimulate fibre digesting bacteria, along with Digest Plus prebiotic, which feeds other beneficial species, and the two work together to promote overall gut health. This is of particular importance at times of stress and for the fussy feeder.

STUD BALANCER FEEDING TABLES
The tables show quantities to be fed alongside ad lib good quality forage ie. hay/haylage (winter) or grass (summer).
Quantities are based on the “anticipated mature bodyweight” of the youngster or actual bodyweight of the adult horse. The actual/estimated bodyweights of a youngster’s dam and/or sire are a good basis from which to estimate the “anticipated mature bodyweight” ie. the bodyweight you believe the youngster will attain as an adult.
An average coffee mug is estimated to hold ½ lb (225g) of Stud Balancer and you are strongly advised to weigh what your particular mug or scoop holds before following the tables below. Alternatively, measuring mugs are available free from Baileys and are designed to hold ½ lb (225g) of Stud Balancer and certain other Baileys products.
Stud Balancer can be introduced from 3 months of age, increasing the quantity by ½lb / 225g each month until 6 months of age, and then following the tables.
Foals up to 3 months of age are better suited to milk-based Foal Creep Pellets which should be decreased from 3 months so they are out of the diet by 4 - 5 months of age.
Rapidly growing foals, or those with developmental problems, may benefit from an additional ½lb / 225g of Stud Balancer per day. Suckling foals which become top heavy may benefit from Foal Assist. Please consult a Baileys Nutritionist for further advice on individual cases by calling 01371 850 247 (option 2) or firstname.lastname@example.org
Stud Balancer can be fed alongside reduced quantities of compound feeds, like Baileys Stud & Youngstock Mix, Stud & Youngstock Cubes, Prep Mix or Yearling Cubes, to ensure a balanced diet is maintained at all times. For every 3lb / 1.4kg of the above Baileys compound feeds removed from the diet, add 1lb / 0.45kg (two coffee mugs) of Stud Balancer.
