WOMEN ON FARMS GATHERING 2019

Equine Health

This presentation will cover three topic areas;  Equine digestive anatomy and how nutrition plays a critical role in equine health and welfare; how to formulate a feed ration for horses based on the current scientific recommendations; and how to incorporate pasture into the ration and when a supplementary ration would be appropriate.

Your presenter, Claudia Macleay is the primary author of Australia’s largest in-depth study on the feeding and management practices of horses, and she aims to share the findings and recommendations of the research with rural women who represent the largest group of horse owners in Australia.

Breanna Ure of Pakenham Produce & Saddlery will also contribute to the presentation to advise you on some of the products available which may complement the health and nutritional requirements of your horse.
