Feed alfalfa or don’t feed alfalfa? Do ulcer supplements work?
Ask a dozen horse owners for feeding advice, and it’s likely you’ll get a dozen different answers! While feeding programs can become personalized based on a horseman’s experience, hearing from the experts is always a good idea.
Enter the Equine Science Center at Rutgers University. Often the source of shared research and findings about our beloved equines, and also often the source for many of our Equine Chronicle health articles, the Equine Science Center is an approved unit of the New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station at Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey.
Their mission: The Rutgers Equine Science Center is dedicated to better horse care through research and education to advance the well-being and performance of horses and the equine industry.
Their educational horse management seminar series for early 2023 happens to be their nutrition edition, and they will offer three sessions in February.
