Usage tips

Feed with cereals or pelleted feed. Mix well into the ration.
1 measuring cup = 90 g

Maintenance dose 1/2 measuring cup (45 g) equivalent to 9 g / 100 kg (live weight)
Maximal recommended dose 1.5 measuring cups (135 g) equivalent to 27 g / 100 kg (live weight)

In breeding stock, (mares and stallions), we advise starting to give CAROTENE at least 6 to 8 weeks before the first service.
For ponies, the daily dose should correspond to the animals' live weight.


Beta-carotene could improve mare fertility:

    • as a precursor of vitamin A in the follicles, it participates in the synthesis of oestrogens and is thus favorable to good follicular growth
    • as local antioxidant, it protects cells in the reproductive system from attack by free radicals
    • following ovulation, it assures the correct functioning of the corpus luteum within which it participates in the synthesis of progesterone. It contributes in this way to maintaining gestation.

Amongst the effects observed when supplementing with beta-carotene we can nite more visible heats, a reduced number of ovarian cysts, an improved fertility level, a reduction in embryo mortality as well as a drop in the number of retained placentas.

In the stallion, beta-carotene participates (as a precursor of vitamin A) in the synthesis of testosterone. It assures good spermatozoa production and maturity. Thanks to its' antioxidation action, it helps protect spermatozoa from attack by free radicals.

Vitamin A affects protein synthesis with consequences on epithelium integrity in the reproductive system, sexual hormone production and immunity.

Vitamin E and organic selenium reinforce the antioxidant action of beta-carotene. Furthermore, supplementing with them would increase in colostrum antibody concentration (IgG and IgM) as well as the quantity of colostrum produced, hence better transfer of immunity from the mare to the foal.

Zinc could play a part in reproduction as an essential activate of sexual hormone production enzymes, and also in its' function of transporting vitamin A.

Supplementing with copper would improve the liberation of sexual hormones (FSH and LH) at a cerebral level (pituitary).

Manganese and vitamin B3 intervene in the production of sexual hormones.

Iodine is essential in synthesising thyroid hormones that stimulates FSH and LH production by the pituitary gland.

Precautions for use

Due to the presence of high levels of vitamins and trace elements (including selenium) contained in this product, respect the recommandations.


Store in a dry place, away from light, at a temperature of between 5 and 25°C.
