Description
Manual of Equine Nutrition and Feeding Management
A practical manual for applied labs on the nutrition and feeding of horses
In the Manual of Equine Nutrition and Feeding Management, a team of equine nutritionists and educators delivers a comprehensive manual perfect for use in an applied laboratory setting. This book explores critical ideas in equine nutrition, from plant identification to determining the cost of feeding.
The laboratory concepts and assignments contained within this book combine the practical aspects of feeds and feeding with the technical aspects of equine nutrition. Each chapter is organized to include an introduction, objectives, and questions for further study; and is supplemented with additional activities to aid in the retention of the presented material. A companion website provides worksheets, with an instructor key with answers to the lab activities and assignments available to instructors.
The book also includes:
  • A thorough introduction to the equine digestive system, including the primary and secondary organs of digestion
  • Comprehensive explorations of plant identification, pasture, hay, and concentrates for horses
  • Practical discussions of by-product feeds and additives, including explanations of the concepts of “as sampled” and “dry matter”
  • In-depth examinations of how to determine the nutrient content of feeds and the use of feeding standards and English-metric conversions
Ideal for pre-veterinary and equine studies students, the Manual of Equine Nutrition and Feeding Management is also an indispensable resource for veterinary medicine and veterinary technician students, equine nutritionists, and the owners and breeders of horses.
