Breeda®

Mitavite® Breeda® is one of the most trusted and popular complete feeds available.  Supporting the development and replenishment of body tissues during critical growth phases such as in a mares final 3 months of pregnancy.  Breeda® has been scientifically formulated to promote optimal, balanced growth and to overcome the problems associated with raising young horses on less than perfect pasture. Critical to the success of Breeda® is the Essential Amino Acid profile and the positive impact that this has on the development of lean muscle, strong tendons and smooth flat bone. This, coupled with the delivery of highly digestible energy, vitamins and minerals in a steam extruded, palatable nugget, assists in limiting peaks in blood sugars often associated with bone developmental problems.

 

Unique Features of Mitavite Breeda

  • Fully steam extruded for maximum digestibility.
  • Highly palatable for even the fussiest eaters.
  • Great for all breeding and growing horses.
  • Formulated to support the development and replenishment of all body tissues.
  • Extra energy and condition during all sport and leisure training.
  • Contains Bonafide®, Mitavite®'s exclusive Vitamin K supplement that supports bone density and good health.
  • No Added Soy & Molasses*


Choose Mitavite Breeda when

  • You are after a great conditioning feed to nurture growth and development
  • You need a feed that is suitable for breeding stock and performance horses
  • You are after a feed high in protein to help build top line and aid muscle recovery after exercise
  • You are wanting to support bone density and good health with Bonafide®, Mitavite®’s exclusive Vitamin K supplement.

 

Vitamite® Bonafide®

Vitamite® Bonafide® explained:

  • The active ingredient in Bonafide® is Quinaquanone, a water soluble, bio-available form of Vitamin K1 & K2.
  • Vitamin K1 & K2 has a critical effect on the function of osteocalcin, the bone protein that binds the mineral and protein in bone together. Without sufficient Vitamin K the binding process is incomplete and low density or defective bone and cartilage are produced.
  • Vitamin K1 & K2 are naturally available in fresh, growing green pasture but it is highly unstable, being degraded by UV light, wilting or “wintering off”.
  • Horses that do not have constant access to high quality pasture are likely to be deficient in Vitamin K, leading to a reduction in bone density and bone strength.
  • Horses removed from Vitamin K rich pasture and brought into a box/yard regime have demonstrated a reduction in bone density within 7-10 days.
  • There is an established correlation between bone density and the incidence of OCDs and DODs in yearlings and DMD (shinsoreness) in 2 year olds.
  • Bonafide® is the first product to contain Quinaquanone, a bioavailable form of Vitamin K1 and K2.

The Mitavite® range of super premium breeding and race feeds now contain Bonafide®. These include the market leading race feeds Formula 3®, Athlete Plus™ and XLR8®, our trusted breeding feeds Breeda®, Promita® and Yearling Prep®, our speciality feed for old horses Gumnuts® and our muesli concentrate Munga®.

 

Trial Results
Trials have showed a marked increase in bone density on BONAFIDE treated two year olds.
26 Two year old thoroughbred racehorses at commencement of training for racing were divided into two groups. One group 'BONAFIDE' RECEIVED 7MG Vitamin K formulation each day in feed for six months.
The other group “Control” received an apparently identical powder containing no natural Vitamin K.


Digital radiographs of the left third metacarpal bone and an adjacent aluminium step wedge were taken at carious intervals. The radiographic density of the bone and the step wedge wer measured and RBAE (radiographic bone aluminium equivalence) calculated.


At each subsequent measurement the RBAE for each horse was compared to its initial RBAE and the percentage change recorded.

 

Bonafide is now available in selected Mitavite feeds 
The MITAVITE range of super premium breeding, sport and lifestyle and race feeds now contain BONAFIDE.
