dac® Breeder’s Choice Plus provides a balanced vitamin and mineral profile for breeding horses. Vitamins & minerals play a critical role in numerous metabolic functions including: reproduction, bone development, nerve function, immune function, hoof, skin and coat quality as well as energy balance. dac® Breeder’s Choice Plus is enhanced with Probiotics.
Yea-Sacc®1026 - is a live yeast culture derived from the specific yeast strain Saccharomyces cerevisiae 1026. Yea-Sacc®1026 increases fiber, phosphorus and calcium digestibility in mares, and increases gross energy, total lipids and amino acid absorption. Yea-Sacc®1026improves milk availability to foals if administered for 3-4 weeks before and throughout the lactation period.
Organic Selenium - Selenium is an essential nutrient that plays a critical role in metabolism, healthy growth, reproductive health, and immunity. It also acts as a powerful antioxidant to prevent fatty acid oxidation which can cause tissue damage. Organic selenium increases the speed of placental expulsion in mares and improves fertility. Research has shown that Sel-Plex®, an organic form of selenium, is more readily absorbed and retained than selenium in inorganic forms. Sel-Plex® is the ONLY organic selenium to be reviewed by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration).
Bio-available Trace Minerals – or chelated minerals are those that have been bonded to two or more amino acids. A mineral in this chelated state allows easy passage through the intestinal wall into the blood resulting in increased metabolism of that mineral. dac® BREEDER’S CHOICE PLUS utilizes organic minerals to increase availability and enhance absorption rates.
Vitamin A – plays a critical role in reproduction and embryogenesis. It is also important for maintaining immune function.
dac® BREEDER’S CHOICE PLUS can be fed with either fortified or unfortified grains. Fortified grains contain added vitamins and minerals and require a lower feeding rate of dac® BREEDER’S CHOICE PLUS. Feed dac® BREEDER’S CHOICE PLUS accordingly:
Early Pregnancy (conception to 7 months) - 2 scoops (2 ounces) per mare per day if fed with unfortified grains.
Late Pregnancy (7 months to term) - 3 scoops (3 ounces) per mare per day if fed with unfortified grains.
Lactation - 3 scoops (3 ounces) per mare per day if fed with unfortified grains.
Breeding Stallions (During Breeding Season) -3 scoops (3 ounces) per stallion per day if fed with unfortified grains.
Consult an equine nutritionist or dac® if feeding this product with fortified grain. Feeding rate based on 1000 lb. horse.
