The Ideal Choice for all Breeding and Growing Horses.

Cell-Grow™ is a concentrated bone mineral supplement of calcium, phosphorus and magnesium with added vitamins and trace-minerals. Cell-Grow™ supports the nutritional needs of pregnant mares and their unborn foals, encouraging good milk production in lactating mares. Cell-Grow™ also promotes healthy growth of bones and joints in foals and young horses.

Cell-Grow™ supplements:

  • Growing horses with nutrients for body, bone and joint development.
  • Pregnant mares - supports health of the mare and development of her unborn foal.
  • Lactating mares – helps ensure optimum milk content of essential minerals and trace-minerals.

Cell-Grow™ provides the foundation for optimum bone and body development for foals and young horses during their formative years. Cell-Grow™ is highly recommended for pregnant and lactating mares to ensure sound and well grown foals where grass and feeds are low in essential minerals and trace-minerals.

“At Callum Park Stud we are very happy to report that our foals arrived safely, looking amazing and most importantly – sound and healthy. In over 20 years of breeding, our broodmares and little ones have never looked better! I've got to say that the addition of Cell Grow in everyone's diets has truly enhanced the health and vitality of all concerned, coats are rich and glistening. Everyone is blossoming and growing perfectly. Very excited for the future with our little ones and knowing they are getting the perfect nutritional balance to ensure their future at the top of the sport.”

Cell-Grow meets the specialised needs of growing and breeding horses with specific ratios of 3 innovative, colour-coded Supplet pellets:

  • White Supplets® – contribute calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, vitamins A and D for bones and joints.
  • Brown Supplets® – provide a full range of trace-minerals, many in organic ‘chelated’ form for optimum uptake, including fully organic selenium and chromium, for blood and muscles.
  • Golden-Yellow Supplets® - all essential vitamins, coated for potency, supports appetite, vitality and optimum metabolic function.


Directions for Use


Cell-Grow™ is formulated from three separate Supplet® pellets, providing bone minerals (white Supplets®), all essential trace-minerals, many in organic ‘chelated’ form, (brown Supplets®) and vitamins (golden –yellow Supplets®) blended in a specific ratio to help make-up shortfalls in grass, hay and mixed feed diets fed to pregnant and lactating mares and growing horses.   Cell-Grow™ is especially formulated to provide calcium and phosphorus to maintain an optimum calcium to phosphorus ratio in grain and hay based diets. Cell-Grow™ mixes well into grain, pellets and textured hard feeds, eliminating waste from sift-out, dust, blow-out from outdoor feeders as horses feed, preventing nutrient interactions between trace-minerals and vitamins as occurs with powdered and liquid supplements.

It is the ideal supplement to maintain the normal health of the pregnant mare and skeletal development of the unborn foal, help ensure colostrum and milk quality in lactating mares and optimum fertility for breeding.  It provides adequate and balanced nutrients for normal body, bone and joint development of the growing horse as a foal, through weaning and up until 2 years of age.

Supplementation Rate:

Where mares and growing horses are fed gain, hay and grass diets without commercial complete feeds*:

  1. Pregnant Mares (from conception – 8 months pregnant). 
    40g (1 scoopful LARGE END) daily for a 500-600kg mare, or 10g (¼ scoopful LARGE END) per 150kg body weight for smaller or larger mares daily.
  2. Pregnant Mares (8-11 months of pregnancy) – last 3 months when the unborn foal requires additional calcium, trace-minerals and Vitamin A to store in its liver prior to birth to offset the lower levels of these nutrients in milk to meet medium rates of growth.
  3. 80g (2 scoopsful LARGE END) daily for a 500kg mare, or 30g (⅔ scoopful LARGE END) per 150 kg body weight daily, given in 2 feeds per day, to help maintain energy supply under cold conditions, to pregnant mares over-wintering at grass. 
  4. Lactating Mares (from foaling to 3 months after foaling during the peak of lactation).
    100g – 120g (2-2½ scoopsful LARGE END) daily for a 500-600kg mare or 40g (1 scoopful LARGE END) per 150kg body weight daily, preferably split between 2 feeds to ensure optimum energy provision for lactation.  On grass based pastures, without legumes (clovers or alfalfa hay or cubes) as a natural source of calcium, the dose rate may need to be increased to 120g (3 scoopsful LARGE END) daily for a 500kg mare, or 40g (1 scoopful LARGE END) per 150kg body weight.
  5. Nursing Foals (1 month to weaning age 6 months).  Co-feed with mare’s feed at the above dose rates, or if separate creep or hard feeds are provided, 40g (1 scoopful LARGE END) daily per 100kg body weight of foal daily.
  6. Weanlings (6 months to 12 months yearling age) 40g (1 scoopful LARGE END) per 150 kg body weight daily. 
  7. Yearlings (12 months to 18 months of age) 40g (1 scoopful LARGE END) per 200kg body weight daily.
  8. Long Yearlings (18 months to 2 years of age – up to 3 years of age in large Warmbloods) 40g (1 scoopful LARGE END) per 250kg body weight daily.**


*If commercial feeds are being fed, half the above daily supplementary rate is recommended, especially to heavily pregnant and lactating mares and weanlings.  If extra grain is added to boost energy, under cold conditions or poor pastures,  Cell-Grow™ should be supplemented at 20g (½ scoopful LARGE END) per 1 kg extra grain daily to make-up nutrient shortfalls.


Calcium, Trace-Mineral and Vitamin Supplement for Breeding and Growing Horses

The specific ‘ration balancer’ for breeding and growing horses.


Kohnke’s Own® Cell-Grow™ is formulated from three separate Supplet® pellets, providing bone minerals and all essential trace-minerals and vitamins. The 3 separate Supplets® are blended in a specific ratio based on NRC 2007 recommendations for breeding and growing horses. The innovative combination helps to make-up common shortfalls in grass and mixed feeds fed to growing horses, pregnant and lactating mares.  It is especially designed to help in correcting imbalances and shortfalls of calcium and phosphorus to maintain a normal calcium to phosphorus ratio.  It is the ideal supplement to maintain the normal health of the mare and unborn foal, help maintain normal milk quality and provide nutrients for normal body, bone and joint development in the young horse.


Special Feature!  The patented Supplet® pellets innovation, exclusive to John Kohnke Products International, separates calcium, trace-minerals and vitamins into 3 separate cold-pressed pellets.  This separation eliminates the problems associated with reduced uptake of trace-minerals, such as iron, copper, zinc, magnesium and selenium in the presence of high levels of calcium.  The majority of the trace-minerals are present in ‘chelated’ form as a mineral incorporated into yeast protein, to help minimise any interaction with vitamins and other mineral incompatibilities. When mixed into a feed, the Supplet® pellets are distributed throughout the feed to ensure optimum digestion and uptake, which can be a problem with many calcium powders containing trace-minerals and vitamins. 



Q.     It is essential to include a balanced bone-mineral, trace-mineral and vitamin supplement, such as Kohnke’s Own® Cell-Grow™, in a growing horse’s diet. Why?

A.     Kohnke’s Own® Cell-Grow™ provides the foundation nutrients for optimum normal body and bone development in young horses in their initial formative year.  Through modern domestication, foals are often denied access to large grazing areas with a wide range of plant species, which historically provided growing horses with the nutrients they required.  The demand for increased size and strength in foals has resulted in added awareness of the importance which these minerals and vitamins have in the growing horse’s diet.  Often grass, hay and grain based diets do not meet the specific amounts of skeletal forming nutrients needed by growing horses.  Therefore, they often require specific nutritional supplementation to offset the reduction in grazing access and variety, as well as meet the nutrient needs for normal growth and size, especially during the first 12 months of life in growing horses and ponies.



Q.     Until what age should Kohnke’s Own® Cell-Grow™ be included in a growing horse’s ration?

A.     Kohnke’s Own® Cell-Grow™ should be provided in a growing horse’s ration until 24 months of age.  Once the young horse has reached this age, the high vitamin and mineral requirements necessary for normal growth can be reduced to a maintenance level.  Despite the reduction in nutritional requirements for growth, the maturing horse should still be supplemented. A vitamin and mineral supplement may be needed to make up for shortfalls in grass, hay and grain diets, as well as to meet the demands of exercise.  After 2-3 years of age, Kohnke’s Own® Cell-Grow™ can be replaced with either Kohnke’s Own® Cell-Provide™, which is suitable for lightly worked and spelling horses or Kohnke’s Own® Cell-Perform™ which is formulated for performance horses.



Q.     Kohnke’s Own® Cell-Grow™ should be included in a mare’s ration from 6 months of pregnancy and is especially important during the last 3 months of pregnancy.  Why?

A.     Supplementing Kohnke’s Own® Cell-Grow™ on a daily basis to a pregnant mare will help to ensure her own normal good health and vitality.  The daily supplement is also important for normal growth and development of her unborn foal, particularly where pastures and feeds are low in calcium, trace-minerals and essential vitamins.  During the last three months of pregnancy, the unborn foal goes through a period of rapid development and doubles in size and triples its weight before birth.  This rapid phase of growth significantly increases the amounts of nutrients required to pass through the foetal membranes.  It is essential to provide additional copper, zinc, manganese, iron, selenium and Vitamin A for liver storage in the unborn foal.  These essential nutrients stored in the foal’s liver at birth are important to make-up any shortfalls in milk for a rapidly growing young foal.  Liver storage is vital to compensate for the low levels of these bone and joint forming nutrients in the mare’s milk.  During the last 3 months of pregnancy, the mare also needs to build-up her own reserves for the increased demands required for milk production after foaling.  Supplementation of Kohnke’s Own® Cell-Grow™ during lactation provides phosphorus, selenium, Vitamin A and E to help maintain normal fertility during the first few months after foaling, so that the mare can be bred again if planned for the same breeding season.


Q.     Why is it important to continue supplementing with Kohnke’s Own® Cell-Grow™ throughout lactation?

A.     Lactating mares have the highest nutrient demand compared to any other stage of their lives.  During peak lactation (4-10 weeks after foaling), a mare can produce 3-4% of her body weight in milk per day, which in a 500kg mare is equivalent to 15-20 litres.  Inadequate nutrition can have a negative effect on milk production, as well as on fertility and conception.  Quality milk production requires sufficient amounts of calcium, phosphorus, potassium and zinc in the mare’s diet.  Phosphorus, selenium and Vitamin A and E also have important roles in maintaining normal fertility in the mare and often grass, hay and grain based diets have shortfalls in these important trace-mineral and vitamins.  Kohnke’s Own® Cell-Grow™ provides the required levels of bone minerals, trace-minerals and vitamins to ensure dietary shortfalls are corrected, optimising normal health of both the mare and foal.  It is also an ideal supplement for ‘creep’ feed mixes and shared mare and foal rations.   It is non-dusty, does not sift out or blow out of outdoor feeders in windy locations.  The Supplets® also mix well with grain or pelleted feeds.


Q.     Kohnke’s Own® Cell-Grow™ contains an optimum ratio of calcium to phosphorus.  Why is this important?

A.     The calcium to phosphorus ratio of 2.7:1 in Kohnke’s Own® Cell-Grow™ has been specifically formulated to match the mineral balance in both grass and legumes, as well as diets supplemented with alfalfa or meadow hay.  When diets contain low levels of calcium and phosphorus, Kohnke’s Own® Cell-Grow™ provides a balanced source to help maintain the normal Ca:P ratio.  An optimum ratio is essential to ensure normal bone formation and development in the growing horse.  It is also important to maintain normal body and skeletal strength in the mare.  Both Vitamin A and D complement the bone minerals in Kohnke’s Own® Cell-Grow™ to ensure optimal absorption and utilisation.


Q.     Are there any other supplements which should be included in my mare or growing horse’s ration?

A.     Although Kohnke’s Own® Cell-Grow™ is a balanced bone mineral, trace-mineral and vitamin supplement, mares and growing horses who are consuming predominantly grass, without access to alfalfa hay/cubes or and legumes, may need to be provided with additional calcium. 


Q.     Should I divide the amount of Kohnke’s Own® Cell-Grow™ between morning and evening feeds?

A.            Pregnant and lactating mares, along with growing horses, require a balanced intake of vitamins and minerals to meet the increased demands for normal milk production, growth and development.  Dividing this amount between two meals will help to ensure optimal absorption and utilisation, enabling your lactating mare, growing foal or weanling to receive the full benefit of Kohnke’s Own® Cell-Grow™.  It is also important when mixing up a feed to reduce the chance of disintegration of the Supplet® pellets.  This can be easily avoided by ensuring an even distribution of the Supplets® throughout the dry feed prior to dampening it down with water.
