Speaking Points for the Lecture
- When may you need to add protein or amino acids? What classes of horses are more likely to need them? How do you know for sure whether it needs to be added?
- What are the options for protein and amino acid supplementation? Which amino acids are commonly added to complete feeds and why? Is it necessary or beneficial to supplement other amino acids through additional supplements?
- How much protein and amino acid supplementation is needed to achieve results? Will feeding more than that help? And can feeding excessive amounts hurt?
