Why rug foals
concerns which the professionals may have about rugging foals have been
addressed with the unique design of the
The Pro-Fit™ design and materials have set a new standard, the most important of which is the safety aspect. Pro-Fit™ rugs are strapless and have no protruding buckles or unnecessary flapping sides, wrapping around the foal for total warmth
Now, with the introduction of Pro-Fit™, the practice of rugging foals is rapidly becoming an integral part of stud management. Pro-Fit™ rugs curtail growth checks during unfavourable weather conditions and increase exercise and play periods for the foal. What's more, stud masters are observing higher growth rates in their rugged foals.
Additionally, the post foaling mare and foal can be put into the paddock sooner, allowing for accelerated uterine involution of the mare, thereby aiding the mare's fertility without compromising the growth and development of the young foal. The added bonus is that foals become quickly accustomed to handling.
The practice of rugging foals is another step in the evolution of commercial animal husbandry.
The use of foal rugs should not be restricted to neonates and weak foals, particularly early in the foaling season. The astute breeder will recognise the advantages in rugging all foals for improved growth rates for the first month to eight weeks of age. In response to this, Pro-Fit™ has developed the Pro-Fit™ All Weather Foal Rug system.
