Free Guide to Nutrition of Horses on Breeding Farms from KER

Stallions, maiden mares, pregnant mares, nursing mares, neonatal foals, orphan foals, weanlings, yearlings…all these horses may be found on a breeding farm, and each class of equine has its own specific nutritional requirements.

The nutritionists and veterinarians at Kentucky Equine Research (KER) have assembled a free 48-page guide entitled “Nutritional Management of Horses on a Breeding Farm” that includes practical feeding and management strategies, plus information on tracking growth of young horses and management of developmental orthopedic disease.
