Summary

In its second edition, Equine Nutrition and Feeding, has been extensively updated, revised, and rewritten. It is now more practical by setting out the implications of new research or feeding programs. As before, the book covers every aspect of nutrition needed by breeding, growing, and working horses. It details how food is digested, how nutrients are utilized, and the basis for scientifically derived nutrient and dietary requirements. Not only does the book cover pasture management procedures, case studies illustrating dietary problems, and a comprehensive toxicology of grazing horses, but it discusses nutritional requirements for each class of stock, including revised systems for energy and protein requirements, as well. Helpful tables, diagrams, and illustrations show nutrient characteristics of many common feeds.
