- ... The aim of the study was to assess the fermentative capacity of faecal inocula obtained from 14 mature grass-kept horses; 7 clinically normal horses (NOR) and 7 that were predisposed to laminitis (LAM). Freshly voided faeces were collected from each animal and stored at -20°C prior to transportation on ice to the laboratory where they were used as inocula for in vitro digestibility determinations, ...

- ... A 3×3 Latin-square design experiment was used to assess the ability of mathematical models to describe the rate of passage of enzyme-treated or sugar beet pulp (SB) substituted lucerne silage in equids. Three experimental diets were evaluated: a lucerne silage control (WS), enzyme-treated lucerne (WE) and lucerne substituted with 300g/kg DM of SB (WSB). Each diet was fed to give a total DM intake ...
