marstall Fohlen-Mix is a high quality concentrate containing essential amino acids, skimmed milk powder and specific vitamins, minerals and trace elements.

marstall Fohlen-Mix is the ideal nutritional supplement to cereals or muesli.

marstall Fohlen-Mix can be used as a starter feed from 2 weeks old or in combination with cereals or muesli for weanlings. The tasty pellets provide growing horses with essential amino acids, which are proven to ensure better bone development and contented growth, and which are gentle on the liver and kidneys. The balanced intake of vitamins, minerals and trace elements also supports healthy joint and skeletal development.

The fundamental studies on foal husbandry carried out by LMU Munich and supported by marstall are implemented in the current GfE recommendations (GfE, 2014). One of the studies shows that the targeted administration of specific essential amino acids had significant positive effects on growth and bone development. Furthermore, the load on the liver and kidneys was lower than with increased soya feeding (Krumbiegel, 2011). The amino acid blend was
designed on the basis of these studies.
