A compilation of papers from past Kentucky Equine Research conferences. Covering a broad range of topics and containing a wealth of information related to equine nutrition, veterinary medicine and exercise physiology. Included is a mixture of original research and review material as well as a great deal of practical information about how to feed and manage all types of horses. This fully indexed text should prove to be an essential reference for anyone interested in the latest developments in equine nutrition.
