Rosemont Stud’s Gerard Jones on preparations and success strategies for yearling sales in 2020

For those in the know, Rosemont Stud needs no introduction. Rosemont in Victoria is a state-of-the-art farm boasting multi-million-dollar facilities including a magnificent stallion barn, home to household names such as Starcraft and Nostradamus, yearling barns, a vet hospital, beautifully manicured gardens and a glorious period homestead and office.

Gerard Jones, operations manager at the beautiful Rosemont Stud pulls back the curtain on how gut health ensures success in a large scale operation at every stage. From weaning, prepping for yearling sales, group one success and everything in between.

Rosemont trusts GastroAID Everyday to help achieve the highest standards and produce the best quality horses for some of the biggest in the business.

GastroAID Everyday is particularly beneficial for hindgut health due to the unique, powerful prebiotic and two live yeast probiotics. Just like our digestive system, the horse’s gut contains ‘good’ and ‘bad’ bacteria. The balance between these bacteria can be easily disrupted. If the presence of bad bacteria outweighs the good, it can negatively impact your horse’s well-being. An unhealthy gut means an unhappy horse.

How does it work?

  1. Controls Stomach Acidity: Calcareous marine algae provides a rich source of calcium, which acts as a buffer and reduces the acidity of excess gastric acid. This helps to maintain a healthy stomach environment.
  2. Promotes Healthy Stomach Lining: Psyllium husk and lecithin form a barrier over the stomach lining to protect it from acid burn and strengthen the integrity of the mucosa.
  3. Inhibits Harmful Bacteria: Yang® is a unique, powerful prebiotic that blocks the attachment and development of harmful bacteria within the gut and strengthens the horse’s natural immune response, thereby reducing the risk of disease.
  4. Improves Intestinal Integrity: Levucell SB® live yeast probiotic promotes robust intestinal cells and maintains tight junctions in the gut lining, which reduces gut permeability to harmful bacteria (prevents pathogens and toxins “leaking” into the bloodstream).
  5. Promotes Beneficial Microbes: Levucell SC® live yeast probiotic reduces lactic acid in the hindgut (stabilises pH) and stimulates the growth and activity of beneficial bacteria for optimal feed conversion efficiency.
  6. Enhances the Body’s Defences: Melofeed® is derived from the pulp and juice of melons. Naturally rich in primary antioxidants, Melofeed® stops the production of free radicals and protects cell membranes from oxidative damage. This enables the horse’s body to better cope with stressors such as exercise and illness.
