This update of a standard reference in horse care reflects the results of the decade of research on horse nutrition that has taken place since the previous edition. The volume presents equations for calculating daily requirements for major dietary components, tables of daily nutrient requirements calculated from the equations, tables of nutrient concentrations required in total diets, composition of feeds commonly used for horses, extensive references, and more.
Plus, purchasers will receive a computer diskette with programs to calculate requirements for energy, protein, lysine, major minerals, and vitamin A.
"Thanks to the new NRC computer program, determining the nutrient requirements for growing horses is simple again." --The Blood Horse, May 27, 1989
