Horsepower Horse FeedHarness Horse feed
Horsepower foal growth is a free of charge tool that allows our customers to track foal weight against an "ideal" bend.
We have a well-stocked collection of horse feed related papers. The Horsepower Group is committed to providing high qualitiy horse feeds, founded on solid science with a focus on low-cereal feed and appropriate supply of minerals and micronutrients. The Horsepower horse care and information service is part of the Horsepower horse care packages, always with the general well-being of the horse in mind.
The improvement of our clients' profits through enhanced performance of their horse is the convenient way in which our results are evaluated.
Forage or horsepower: evaluation of the best use of cereals
As the supply of fossile combustibles becomes increasingly difficult, the utilities have been looking for alternative energies for the billions of automobiles and lorries on America's motorways. Technology has been designed and improved to produce plant biofuels from maize, soy and sugar cane, which were previously mainly used for humans and animals.
As a result, there has been greater competitive pressure on the markets for these cultures and higher limited availability in spite of the fact that more effective cultivation methods have stimulated output. Producing fuels from vegetable raw materials is probably not yet as effective, but it needs to be significantly improved in order to achieve the EROI (Energy ROI on Investment) of traditional oils.
This means that we need a lot of electricity to produce it, and a low level of output is equivalent to an expansive and efficient use of resources. In 2011, global output was around 69 million kegs per diem, with 16 kegs per year. On the other hand, the manufacture of sugar cane alcohol, the most important renewable resource for equine feed, has the highest value of 9 EROIs from farm produce, reflecting the amount of annual global cultivation, harvests, transport, purification, crushing, fermentation and distillation of the end produce, which is around 0.4 million btr. per year.
Bio-diesel from soya beans has an eroli of 5. The yield on investments in productive energies follows the same curve: vehicles running on conventional petrol drive 3,600 mile per gigajoules of electricity used for producing gas. Sugar cane-based bioethanol, which is manufactured with the same amount of fossil fuels, will take a vehicle 2,000 kilometers, while soy-based bio-diesel will only drive the same vehicle for 1,400 mile.
The use of the same amount of fuel to make corn-based bioethanol would only be about 300 mile. Cereals are in high-demand with a ballooning global populace, both for humans and for the feeding of livestock (including horses) intended for humans. Gas-fired generation - which includes windpower, photovoltaic and hydropower - can be used to generate electric current that has the capacity to run automobiles very efficiently.
A US electricity grid-powered electrically powered vehicle can cover 6,500 mph, more than three gigajoules as much with the same amount of output as a sugar cane ethanol-powered vehicle and more than 20 as much as a cornfuel ethanol-powered one. Hydropower EROIs are better than 40 and windpower has an average of about 20 EROIs, both better than EROIs of 16 for traditional petroleum.
What does this information have to do with horse feed? While the US is still in the early stage of alternative energies, these numbers from the International Agency, the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the U.S. Information Administration could predict a turn. Over the next few years, we may use less maize, soy and sugar cane to produce biodiesel.
There would be more of these cultures available for human and animal food, which could ultimately result in lower horse feeds.
