Overview

Since the first edition of Equine Nutrition and Feeding was published in 1986, it has become the seminal work on the subject. It covers all the key topics that you need to know for your equine nutrition degree course. This comprehensive and clearly evidenced textbook covers how food is digested and nutrients are used in growing, working and breeding horses. It also explains the scientific basis for calculating nutrient and dietary requirements in an understandable manner, and shows you how to do these calculations. Special attention is also given to grassland and pasture, and to housing and diet-related diseases.

Additional, student-friendly features include:

  • References to the most up-to-date information, including ‘Nutrient Requirements of Horses’, from the National Research Council (2007).
  • Case histories to provide practical examples.
  • Study questions at the end of each chapter to help you to revise.
  • A comprehensive glossary of terms and abbreviations.

Changes to this Fourth Edition:

  • Evidence base has been expanded, with 646 new research reports and papers being incorporated.
  • Extensively revised to make navigation easier.
  • A new section is dedicated to the weaning and growth of the foal.

This book is the essential text for any undergraduate and postgraduate student of equine nutrition, equine veterinary medicine, equine veterinary nursing or agricultural science. It is also used by equine nutritionists and horse owners.

"The second edition covers virtually every aspect of nutrition needed by breeding, growing, and working horses."

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Kate F McGovern, BVetMed (University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine)
Description: This complete guide to equine nutrition includes feeding for horses with special needs and toxicology. The previous edition was published in 2004.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide nutrition information to horse keepers around the world.
Audience: Although the book is targeted at well-informed horse owners, it also would be a good reference for veterinarians, veterinary technicians, and veterinary students
Features: It nicely covers some basic gastrointestinal anatomy and physiology, requirements of various types of horses, types of feed, how to formulate a nutrition plan, and pasture management. The sections on trace minerals are presented in the context of deficiency/toxicity, a good way to cover this. The sections on feeding particular types of horses (mares/foals/athletes) are also particularly well done. The book has a nice glossary with lots of detail.
Assessment: This update is justified by the amount of research interest in this area in recent years. Although there are many other books on nutrition (such as Feeding Horses and Ponies: Overcoming Common Feeding Problems, McBane (David & Charles Publishers, 1996)), the parts of this book that focus on pasture management and nutrition-related diseases provide broader coverage of topics than others available in this area.
