Hello. Good article about Protein requirements for healthy horses. I am working in a small feed meal in Israel. Like to know more about vitamins and microelements for horses. Thank you very much. Amatzia Eyal
Ref: For Protein requirements healthy horses. I am totally in agreement with the article in fixing the concept that the excess of protein in the alfalfa hay (leguminosa) wakes up wished pathologies and not to avoid them, we must decide on a hay-associated pasture (grass + legume). But also it is not less important to emphasize than the owner of the horses must know through an analysis the nutritional profile of the hay, the parameters of protein and dose them according to the category (working horse - sport horse - mares in gestation - mares in lactation, etc), and the zootechnician objetive to be attained. All this always with a nutrition program that contemplates the daily necessities of the horse with the totality of contribution that integrates the ration, to avoid disbalances. Congratulations, very good articles. MARTIN EDUARDO LUCIONE TECHNICIAN PRODUCTION HORSE
Ref : For protein requirement healthy horse The uric fitico is an organic uric containing (P) phosphorus, is present in cereals (seeds) and vegetables (fiber).In the form of phytate phosphorus is not bioavailable in monogastric for lack of the enzyme (Phytase), which separates the phosphorus in phytate molecule. In horses that is fed mainly by cereals and leguminous. Given that the phosphorus in phytate from these foods is not available for absorption, the phytate not absorbed passes through the gastrointestinal tract by raising the amount of phosphorus in the manure. The bioavailability of the phytate phosphorus can increase supplementing the diet with enzyme (Phytase).
