Horse nutrition and feeding, second ed.
Iowa State University Press, Frape D. Equine Nutrition and Feeding, 2e édition, Ames, 1999. Covering all facets of equine nutrition and food science, this extensive guide provides a complete overview of all equine diets. Subdivided into 12 chapters: the alimentary system; the use of food sources of food origin and proteins; the role of key minerals and micronutrients; vitamins and waters; feed components; estimation of food needs; feeding of broodmares, foals and stallions; vegetation; feeding for efficiency and metabolic rate of nutrition during movement; grass and pastures cultivation; parasites and diseases related to pastures; nutrition and accommodation; and lab techniques for using them.
There are several flaws in the novel. For example, the section on the assessment of dietary condition discusses metabolism assays (clinical chemistries of plasma and urine), but does not include food assays and rations assessment. Sometimes the books seem to be geared towards horse scientists or agriculturalists rather than vets.
Among the strong points of the novel are comprehensive reference works and a good index. A lot of subjects are covered thoroughly, and the guide contains a lot of useful information about various types of feeding, the impact of converting, weightsensing formulations from measures, growing charts, and the impact of movement. We are reviewing our nutritional needs measurement system and practice from around the globe.
Enjoying reading the books, I found the information useful. We can recommend vets and student vets who are looking for a guide to a thorough understanding of the fundamentals of horse nutrition.
