FAQ

I feed my yearlings Probreed. What should I feed 2- and 3-year-olds?
Juniorix can be started as early as of the age of 1. The amounts of vitamins and minerals are concentrated in such a way that a couple of kilos a day are plenty to keep young horses in prime condition.
Feeding my young horses Juniorix is a bit costly if I want to give them a complete feed. Would it not be better to switch to a less expensive feed?
The quality and concentration of the vitamin premix in Juniorix is such that you only need to feed a limited amount of kilos a day. Feeding more than 3 kilos is surplus, even for 3-year-old horses. Young horses need sufficient amounts of good-quality forage to have good digestion. Supplementing the forage with a limited amount of Juniorix provides the animal with the right amount of nutrients because of the higher concentration of vitamins and minerals. In addition, young horses can do without excess weight, as this constitutes an added strain load on tendons and joints. Juniorix produces a healthy young horse with a glossy coat that can maintain a proper weight.
At what age can I start feeding Juniorix?
Basically, starting from the age of 1, but many breeders like to make a gradual change. It is advisable to mix Juniorix with the horse’s regular feed increasingly over a 1- to 2-month period until the daily ration is completely Juniorix.

Additional Information & Education

DESIGNED FOR YOUNG HORSES 1-3 YEARS OLD

Young horses need the correct balance of protein, energy and especially minerals. The proper mineral balance will ensure optimal bone and joint development thereby reducing the risk for developmental disorders. Cavalor® Juniorix has an optimal balance of the nutrients needed to sup­port steady growth of the growing horse including protein, energy and especially its minerals.

STEADY GROWTH IN YOUNG HORSES

Diet plays an essential role to ensure steady energy and nutrients are provided without causing huge peaks and lows. A steady growth curve is essential in young horses to avoid negatively impacting bone and cartilage develop­ment. Providing properly balanced energy and nutrients to prevent huge peaks and lows allows for optimal and steady growth. Because growing bone and cartilage are vulnerable during the first years of life, both excess and lack of nutrients can impact proper skeletal development and cause health issues.

HELPS REDUCE RISK OF OCD PROBLEMS

It's important to not only have adequate amounts of key minerals, but also the correct ratios. Minerals are highly interactive with each other and one mineral can increase or decrease the availability of the other. A proper mineral balance will ensure optimal bone/joint development and thereby reduce the risk for OCD.
