KER has more than 20 years of experience in designing nutrition programs for breeding farms. Equine nutritionists from KER can visit a farm, evaluate current feed management, arrange for analysis of feedstuffs, and suggest changes to improve the health and productivity of all breeding stock.
A KER nutritionist will visit your farm, talk to owners and managers, do a hands-on evaluation of breeding stock and young horses as to condition and conformation, and explain ways to monitor growth and development of foals, weanlings, and yearlings. Contact KER founder, Joe Pagan, PhD. for more information.
Gro-Trac, a state-or-the-art software program, is a sophisticated yet simple way to track the growth of foals and young horses. Weekly or monthly measurements of height and weight can be used to generate growth curves, compare young horses within a farm to foal crops of previous years, and contrast a farmís foals with their peers from regional and national averages. Identifying and minimizing periods of excessively fast or slow growth helps to eliminate problems with developmental orthopedic disease. Learn more.
Using an equine scale is the easiest and most accurate way to track foal growth. KER offers an equine scale that is light enough to be portable, but rugged enough to stand up to years of wear under farm conditions. Learn more.
