Nutrition is not as simple as figuring out what a particular horse requires to function, but that's a good start. Advances III delves into so many areas it is hard to give an overview.
Diet affects everything a performance horse does, and recent research into specific areas is revealed here.
There are five sections: general nutrition, feeding management, performance horses, growth and development and pathological conditions.
Renowned veterinary researchers and experts are among the authors of more than 40 papers.
Every horse owner, from the back-yard breeder to the seasoned professional, will find something that they can apply immediately - whether it be a slight tweaking of an already successful regime, or a total rethink of years of experience.
About the author:
Following graduation from Cornell University and a short stint in the private sector, Dr. Joe D. Pagan founded Kentucky Equine Research (KER) with the vision that advances in equine nutrition would find their way to the feed tubs of horses throughout the world. Pagan oversaw construction of a research facility in central Kentucky in the late 1980s. Since then, he has conceived and supervised numerous nutrition and exercise physiology studies at the facility.
