Equine Energetics

Are your feed rations meeting your horse's energy requirements? Energy, which is usually measured in calories, is used to fuel the body's processes. A horse's energy requirements can vary during different parts of the year based on the horse's work load, performance, and the weather and surrounding environment.

In this presentation, Dr. Dennis Sigler, Professor and Extension Horse Specialist at Texas A&M University, will discuss the horse's nutritional requirements regarding energy and calories, as well as how horses utilize and store energy.

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 http://www.myhorseuniversity.com/resources/webcasts.
