I was honoured to have been part of the team who put together the Veterinary Clinics | Equine Practice book of clinical review articles on Equine Nutrition.
Together with Dr Brian Nielsen (Professor, Michigan State University) and Dr Carrie Finno (Associate Professor, UC Davis) we wrote the chapter ‘Nutritional and Non-nutritional Aspects of Forage’.
Hopefully it will make a great resource for equine veterinarians around the world!
The biggest take-home message…
Forage alone is unlikely to meet all nutrient requirements and some form of supplementation, be it in the form of supplements, balancers or feeds, will almost always be necessary to create a balanced diet!
If anyone would like a copy we would be happy to email it to you.
