Protein Requirements for Horses

Did you know that a horse's protein requirements change based on their age and the type of work they are doing? Young growing horses, for example, have a higher protein requirement than mature horses.

In this presentation, Dr. Holly Spooner will explain more about a horse's protein requirements and how they can be met in a balanced diet.

This presentation is free and provided as a partnership between eXtension Horses and My Horse University. The presentation will be archived, along with previous presentations, at
