This book deals with the UFC system for net energy, the MADC system for global amount of amino acids, and the evaluation of intake. These systems allow accurate comparison of the nutritive value of feeds, the formulation of well-balanced rations to achieve production or utilisation goals, and the prediction of equine performance from the quantity and quality of the ration. 'Equine nutrition' provides an update of the nutrient requirements for all the main categories of equine including mare, stallion, young horse and exercise horse of different breeds and sports or races and pulling, pony and donkey. The tables of allowances and the simple approach to formulation of rations based on the use of a maximum amount of forage are likely to be widely applicable. The nutrient requirements and allowances are based on factorial and feeding trial methods carried out at INRA. A method for ration formulation and evaluation is displayed. The importance of grass during summer for the different categories of equines is evaluated and grazing management is described. Feed allowances and feeding practices are proposed in respect of health and behaviour of the equine. The feed tables list about 170 forages and crop residues, 80 concentrates and by-product feeds. Data have been derived from digestibility trials on horses, carried out at INRA and measurements of voluntary intake for most of the forages. This book is intended for scientists, teachers and their students, advisers and industrialists.

The book is divided into 3 parts: Basic or core nutrition in this context refers to digestive physiology of the horse and the principles of nutrition. Applied nutrition deals with the particular types of foods, and how to maintain an optimum diet through various life stages of the horse. You might characterize this aspect as prevention of disease through diet. Clinical nutrition covers various diseases induced by poor diet, and their dietary treatment and management. It also looks at specific feeding regimes useful in cases disease not specifically induced by diet. Authoritative, international contributions Strong coverage of clinical aspects either omitted from or only sparsely dealt with elsewhere Full colour throughout The only clinical equine nutrition book

Forages And Grazing In Horse Nutrition

Forages should be the basis of all diets in horse feeding. Therefore it is of major importance to determine which parameters will influence their quality. Changes on chemical composition along the vegetative cycle, nutrient losses during harvesting, preservation and storage are factors that could have an effect on nutritive value, as well on digestibility and palatability. A specific grazing and ingesting behaviour, linked to plant preferences and the selection of feeding sites will have an impact on biodiversity. This will determine the options on plant species and varieties and further management of pastures for horses. This book highlights the role of forages and grazing in horse nutrition and also gathers information about related topics, such as the contribution of local breeds for the sustainability and development of rural areas, their impact on landscape and relationships with environmental preservation. This book is the 6th volume in a scientific series conceived through the European Workshop on Equine Nutrition (EWEN) which falls under the umbrella of the Horse Commission of the European Federation of Animal Science (EAAP). All these materials provide an interesting basis for further discussion, not only in specialized forums, but also for those involved in horse production.
