Daily total protein intake had no effect on blood protein concentrations in the mares. Total protein intake and quality (available essential amino-acids) did affect the body mass of mares . Graduation date: Three levels of dietary crude protein (, , and ) were\ud fed to 24 pony mares to determine the effects on the estrous cycle,\ud conception rate, and serum progesterone concentrations. Mares were allotted into three treatment groups designated as low protein (LP),\ud medium protein (MP), and high protein (HP). Daily total protein intake had no effect on blood protein concentrations in the mares. Total protein intake and quality (available essential amino-acids) did affect the body mass of mares Cited by: The effect of dietary protein on reproduction in the mare. V.

Their respective daily diets were: Diet 1: 2 kg cubes, 5 kg tef hay (Eragrostis tef</I>); Diet 2: 2 kg cubes, 5 kg lucerne hay (Medicago sativa</I>); Diet 3: 2 kg cubes, 5 kg tef hay, g fishmeal; Diet 4: 2 kg cubes, 5 kg lucerne hay, g by: 7. Depending on the breed and physiological state of the mare, she will have different nutrient requirements , , . Native pony mares can often survive on pasture alone and a vitamin and mineral supplement, even when lactating, without any detriment to the foal or loss of body condition , , .Cited by: Body condition of broodmares and the effect on reproduction. Mare fertility depends on nutrition, but is also influenced by factors such as age, parity, hormone metabolism, disease, trauma, and genetics. A balanced broodmare diet will decrease the risk of retardation of the fetus, which can cause altered development and may influence the horse. Dietary protein nutrition or utilization and the associated effects on ovarian or uterine physiology have been monitored with urea nitrogen in plasma or milk; concentrations above 19 mg/dl have been associated with altered uterine pH and reduced fertility in dairy by:
reproduction sometimes observed with excessive levels of protein in the diet: • High levels of blood urea may occur, which has a toxic effect on the sperm, the ova, and the developing embryo. • The balance of hormones may be altered—progesterone levels are low when the blood contains high levels ofCited by: To produce milk and to repair the reproductive tract in preparation for future pregnancy, the mare requires substantial amounts of energy, protein, calcium and phosphorus. To maintain both adequate milk production and body condition, lactating mares will often need to be fed substantial amounts of grain.
