Widely regarded as the seminal work on the subject.
One of the essential horse nutrition books needed to get you successfully through your exams and coursework essays, this is another book I relied heavily on during my equine sports science degree course.
Completely unmarked pages, no highlights or notes, very minor shelf-wear to covers and page ends.
Packed with information, some of it extremely technical, and diagrams, photos, charts, tables, etc.
12 comprehensive chapters covering all the usual pasture management, nutrients and digestion, etc, plus Ingredients of Horse Feeds, Feeding The Breeding Mare, Foal, and Stallion, Feeding for Performance and the Metabolism of Nurtrients During Exercise, Grassland and Pasture Management, Pests and Ailments Related To Grazing Area, Diet and Housing, Laboratory Methods for Assessing Nutritional Status and some Dietary Options, plus several appendices:
A. Example Calculation of Dietary Composition Required for a 400-kg Mare In The Fourth Month Of Lactation
B. Common Dietary Errors in Studs and Racing Stables
C. Chemical Composition of Feedstuffs Used For Horses
D. Estimates of Base Excess of a Diet and of Blood Plasma
A 37 page glossary of medical/ veterinary, nutrition and other horse-related terminology, and 47 pages of A-Z bibliography and references.
Again, this is one of the recommended reading books on a lot of equine courses, and would also be invaluable to any vet student's collection, too.
Used copies with highlights and other signs of use are elsewhere online at
anything from £24 to £47. This is very good, clean copy with no marks in it anywhere. One small turn-down on p.173 to mark a table listing daily DE requirements for different horses performing different functions, but nothing else I can see.
Don't risk this being unavailable in the library, you need this book to write impressive essays on horse nutrition!
***I'm having a clear-out of a lot of my many, many equestrian books, covering everything from dressage, natural horsemanship, business management, veterinary, bits and bitting, horsemanship and equitation, etc etc etc, plus my equine sports science degree study texts.
