Article: Diet Might Improve Older Broodmare Fertility

A new article on TheHorse.com might be of interest to breeders with older broodmares that they'd like to get pregnant.

The article summarizes a presentation by Giovana D. Catandi, DVM at the American Association of Equine Practitioners convention in Denver just a few days ago. Dr. Catandi reported on research being done at Colorado State University that confirmed that "nutrition plays a key role in improving oocyte quality, which can be a boon to overcoming fertility problems in older mares."

A reference to this article was shared in a Facebook breeders group, and the comments included a good point: "Hoping it works, but either way, I sure feel better trying!"
