The Epol Millard cubes are a high performance product formulated for all horses in training.
This feed has a higher protein level (16%) for muscle development, of both younger and more mature racehorses.
Lower starch levels than our other racing rations ensure a slightly less ‘heating’ delivery of energy to a working racehorse as well as minimising the risk of starch overload in the hindgut. This makes it an ideal ration to phase in from Pre-training to young horses as they increase their workload.
Feeding horses correctly requires a good eye and careful monitoring of your horse’s individual needs, condition and behaviour. We therefore suggest you contact us directly for personalised feeding advice.

The Millard cubes are designed to be fed alongside good quality roughage such as hay and/ or pasture. Roughage which should be fed at an absolute minimum of 1% of body weight per day (5kg for a 500kg horse).
Always ensure the minimum roughage requirement is met and then adjust the amount of feed depending on condition and workload. Meal sizes should preferably be limited to between 2 and 2.5 kg per feeding.
Depending on the workload, age, condition and quality of the available roughage, it is recommended that 6kg-8kg of the Millard cubes is fed per day .
It is very important to ensure that the horse is fed the correct portion of food by weight, not by volume! All feeds have different densities and thus do not weigh the same. Therefore, it is very important to establish exactly what weight (kg) your scoop holds of the specific product you are feeding.
Always introduce any new feed or product over a period of 7-14days and ensure fresh water is available at all times.
