Feed & Nutrition

Feed and nutrition are a priority on Bowness Stud. All horses are supplementary fed daily. We grow all our own grain and fodder. Agisted groups are rotated on to legume and grass-based improved pastures on a regular basis. We have utilised blends of biological fertilisers and compost teas on our pastures and crops to balance soil fertility and enhance plant nutrient content.

Bowness Stud and Watershed Farm pride themselves on providing lush, nutrient rich pastures, along with regular blends and feed mixes of home-grown hay, legumes and grains.

On Watershed Farm we utilise a Keenan feed mixer as part of our program. With our Keenan, we scientifically mix high protein blends and nutrient supplements together with feed, placing an emphasis on keeping acidosis minimised.

Complete rations are mixed together and dispersed to horses on a regular basis so they consistently receive a high quality dietary intake. Our mixes and pastures are designed to promote intestinal health, heightened immunity and improved bone and muscle density. Along with an abundant paddock pasture, this assists horses to reach their full genetic potential.

 

FEED FOR RACING

We follow with keen interest our racehorse spellers when they return to the track to ensure they have improved growth and strength after their time on Bowness Stud and Watershed Farm. Upon return we liase with trainers, and follow up with an appropriate feed and nutrition regime that caters for individual needs to boost return to racing potential.
