Advances in Equine Nutrition IV
By J D Pagan
Advances in Equine Nutrition IV PDF is a collection of original research and review papers presented during Kentucky Equine Research nutrition conferences held in Lexington, Kentucky. Conferences feature international authorities on nutrition, exercise physiology, and veterinary topics pertaining to the horse. These authorities have not only refined nutritional requirements of horses, they have also discovered ways to most effectively deliver nutrients necessary to fuel horses in all athletic endeavors, to achieve sound growth in young horses, and to ensure nutrient requirements are being fulfilled in reproductively active horses. Interspersed among scientific topics, practical feeding and management considerations are offered.
Written by leading research scientists, this informative compilation examines the latest advances in equine nutrition, veterinary medicine, and exercise physiology for a range of horses, including the broodmare, the growing horse, and the performance horse. While focusing on foraging and general nutrition, this resource also explores specialized management and techniques for the prevention of injuries and diseases, such as insulin resistance and hyperkalemic periodic paralysis (HYPP).
